Remember “death panels”? Palin’s assertion that payment for end-of-life counseling would somehow morph into government mandated suicide? Apparently, that argument has since become a loser — so now we hear that what she really meant, you see, was that government “rationing” is the real mechanism by which “death panels” operate.
This goes against statements to news organizations from Palin’s own operation, ignores the fact that rationed care is already an American reality, and further demonstrates just how desperate Palin is to ensure the popularity of her last, tiny bit of relevance: her Facebook page.
Politico refers to the question of how, exactly, these imaginary “death panels” work as a “haze of confusion.” Maybe so, but the haze is one-sided.
