Quote of the Day
Sarah Palin’s “death panels” claim had far more credibility than Klein’s slander of Joe Lieberman, which, incidentally, also slanders anyone else who opposes the Senate bill. If there be justice in the world, that slander will backfire.
I don't know: as Lefty hyperbole goes, Klein's latest magnum opus seemed... disappointing. Though to his credit, snuffing out a few hundred thousand seniors just doesn't exert the same emotional pull as the demise of six or seven sexually confused Arctic wolves.
But all the same I was rather hoping someone would entertain me by accusing Palin of bagging undocumented aliens with a high powered rifle from her black helicopter while breastfeeding Trig for the cameras. If they could have worked in a few amniotic fluid conspiracy theories, the trifecta of idiocy would have been too delicious to contemplate.
Damn that Cato Institute!!!

Well, except that as the new mammogram recommendations hint, Sarah might actually be, you know, correct.
Just like real life villains don't twist their handlebar mustaches or stroke long haired white cats, death panels don't look like a raised dias overlooking and elderly man while declaring "You are Obsolete!". They look like cube farms full of nerdy data analysts running SAS (or if they're really low-brow SPSS ;-) ).

God bless Joe Lieberman!

We don't just do it in front of *anybody*, though.
