Hold that baby up a little higher please, Ms. Palin, so everyone can see

"The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil."--Sarah Palin

Two things: one, she is definitely running for President; two, she has no idea what "Orwellian" means (but that won't cost her many votes).

Harry Finch said...

A third thing: for someone who wants the media to leave her kids alone, she seems to have no problem using them when it suits her purpose.

Harry Finch said...

Which is what your post title is saying. Sorry.

LimesNow said...

She DOES love to dangle that little Down Syndrome baby when she thinks it will have the best effect. The woman is probably happy to have given birth to such a great "prop". Weird name AND damaged! I'm offended by her and her oddly named, damaged baby. I have a profoundly retarded brother and I am OFFENDED by her.

Harry is right! She's running. GOOD! That assures us of 8 good years.

Once again, attack the person and not the message.

Harry Finch said...

She is the message.

Once known as The Badger said...

A moron with a Down Syndrom baby and is proud to be ignorant... attack the person or the message? Does it matter? She's a loose cannon in the worst way.

LimesNow is looking forward to "8 good years" of Obama because of Palin being such an airhead.
"8 good years"? REALLY, now?
The bodies continue to come home in aluminum boxes and Iraqis, Afghans and Pakistanis continue to bury dead civilians. It matters not a whit who is in the White House.
Sociopathic war profiteers and war mongers run this country.

Yow, Louis. He's had fewer than 8 MONTHS to correct years, decades, centuries of BS. He and his team have made more positive change than any in recent memory. Do we still live in evil? YES! Do we accept it or try to make change? I see the glass half full. I'm not Pollyanna or stupid or bitter or a fatalist. I think where there are people with brains, change may come.

Erin O'Brien said...

I see your point, Lou, but I'm with Limes on this one. I'm not ready to hang it up on Obama just yet. Sure, I'd love to see a hard left turn, but that just isn't feasible with the USS Juggernaut.

As far as attacking the message,anon, I thought just repeating it was an attack. I mean COME ON--Obama's "death panel"??? But if you need me to be a little more obvious, fine.

I think it's unconscionable for someone so many people admire and trust to put forth unsubstantiated fear mongering on the back of the must vulnerable among us. That she prostitutes her own family makes it all the more vile.

Hal said...

Here's the rub on Sarah: She and her family are eligigle for free federal health care right now by virture of Todd "The First Dude" Palin being a native Alaskan. A law was passed in 1970 giving all descendents of Native Alaskans access to free government run health care if they elected to use it.

Baby Trig will never face a "death panel," or anyone declining to provide him any care he needs.

Sully, as usual, has a great take, and also reminds us how she stretched the truth as if it had enough rubber in it to have safe sex for a year on her family's struggles with health care during the VP debate last year.

Next to the definition of "piece of work" in the definition is a picture of the hockey mom.

Erin, you are the BEST with words and I bow to the godess, as I'm out on a hellishly long training walk and suffering. John had NOTHING on you ~ it must be in the DNA.

So, from a street corner in the early a.m. in LV, NV on a Sunday when I'm just about to turn a startling age . . . thank you for defending my honor, for being like-minded.

"USS Juggernaut" ~ I'm cackling out loud and people are looking at me.

"Death panel" ~ f***ing jesus. Woman (Palin), go away.

Message to self: be sturdy enough to comment on Erin's blog, see the Badger there, and insist I'm right on, A life's lesson.

Girl ~ you're very left and west, even though it's Cleveland. Thanks for being in my life in a small way. Truly!

Dudesworthy said...

"Death Panel" eh?

I heard that, if elected President, Sarah Palin has pledged to use the federal budget to fund the construction of a national network of death-rays to 'burn the devil' out of the evolutionists.

Erin O'Brien said...

OOH! I want to play that game Dude!

I heard that, if elected President, Sarah Palin has pledged to ... supply every man, woman and child with their own live snake for handling.

Harry Finch said...

If every man, woman and child had their own snake, then domestic snake oil production would increase, snake oil exports would explode, and we'd eliminate the trade-deficit. Talk about a stimulus package!

Kirk Jusko said...

Of course, Sarah Palin doesn't want a government bureaucrat to decide who lives or dies.

The free market already does that quite nicely.

Deodand said...

What is she, crazy? The Canadian Death Panels are much nicer than that.

John Ettorre said...

She has turned from a bad running joke into something even worse. The mere sight of her makes me sick.

Dudesworthy said...

Erin, Your Challenge is accepted.

I heard that, if elected President, Sarah Palin has pledged to ... deliver an education system fit for 21st Century America by introducing compulsory beauty pageant training and participation for all girls.

Erin O'Brien said...

I trust, Dudesworthy, that said training will include abstinence education.

Dudesworthy said...

Naturally...

Did you know that Sarah Palin's favorite color is Nuclear Armageddon?

I also heard that, if elected President, Sarah Palin has pledged to reduce the number of witches on America's streets by 3.5% over the next four years
