Sarah Palin’s Railin’ About The Ailin’

palindrome-forward-backward

Good golly Miss Molly! Every time that we think that Sarah Palin has said the stupidest thing ever, she opens her mouth and says something even more stupid. Today, CNN reports that Palin claims that President Obama’s health care reform proposal is “downright evil.” But let’s look at the actual statement from Henry Wordsworth Palin, shall we?

“And who will suffer the most when they ration care?” she wrote. “The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. 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.” (See full CNN story here)

Palin’s foolishness has this time made itself apparent in two different ways. First of all, she has once again broadcast her “it’s all about me” philosophy by singling out her parents and once again throwing down syndrome child Trig out into the political debate. Does she never learn that when she uses her children as props for her political stances, that it is she that is drawing attention to them by her critics?

Secondly, Palin has once again displayed her ignorance and lack of education (especially her reading ability) by completely mischaracterizing a provision of the proposed health care reform bill. Sarah, please do us all a favor and read the actual words of the proposed bill before commenting thereon. There is no “death panel”, nor is there any revolutionary plan to weigh whether your parents or Trig are “worthy of health care.”

In fact, as CNN reports, there is…

a provision in the House health care bill that calls for “advance care planning consultation.” The measure would make available to individuals the option of a consultation with a medical provider who would explain “advance care planning,” if they have not met with a senior medical practitioner within the previous five years. These sessions would be an optional benefit, and would not be mandatory under the legislation.

During these consultations, the doctor would answer questions about care, suggest other professionals to speak with, and offer an explanation of the legal definitions of living wills, powers of attorney and the role of a health care proxy. The doctor would also provide a list of national and state resources devoted to assisting individuals and families with advance care planning; inform people of existing end-of-life services like hospice care, and what sorts of financial benefits are available to help them take advantage of that support; and explain the meaning of different orders that relate to life-sustaining treatment.

Get it, Sarah? These are nice, helpful and optional services to be provided to elders. There are no “death panels” and no reasonable person could infer from that language that anything like a “death panel” will be put in place. Also, too, you idiot, the provision applies to elder Americans. There is no mention of children with disabilities and certainly no specific mention of your Trig.

Sarah, when will you learn that it is not all about you?

In honor of the troops’ please click on the song link below to have more fun singing along with today’s song parody.

IT’S ALL ABOUT SHE

(sung to the Harry Connick Jr. version of the song “It Had to Be You”)

It’s all about she
Who cares about you?
Her parents are clowns and poor Trig has downs
Oh, what will they do?
Palin and her crew
Say things so untrue
Health reform is bad, just ask her dad
They haven’t a clue

Is Sarah just mean?
Brain small like a bean?
She’s always so cross
But nobody’s boss
What’s with that hairdo?
Won’t have health reform if there’s a bill
You can shove your damn living will
It’s all about she, who cares about you?
She hasn’t a clue

(instrumental break)

Obama it seems
Might fulfill our dreams
Drive down health care costs
Republican loss
What will Palin do?
Keep her health plan if she likes it still
Who the hell needs a living will?
I certainly do, how about you?
I bet you do too

  1. Is a brain transplant covered by her health insurance? ‘Cause it looks like she needs one…her heart seems to be MIA, also, too.

  2. I’m 72, and I need a living will ! I put it off for whatever reason! However Bring on the assistance from a Health Care Professional.Im absolutly sure it will benefit those who would like to know how the last moments,day’s of their lives will be handled.This nonsense from the GOP has spurred me to action. I’m going to do a living will this week.It was selfish of me to have put it off this long! It’s certainly not fair to our loved ones to have to make a decision about how to proceed in a situation where its hopeless to prolong life.I had to make that judgement for my Mother,make no mistake it haunts you.Don’t let these fear mongers scare you it’s a GOP lie.

    • I could not agree with you more. I would not wait until passage of the health care reform bill however. It is very inexpensive to consult an attorney and have a will, durable power of attorney and living will ( it is called a health care proxy in Massachusetts) drafted. believe me, I should know.

  3. When every bit of hope is gone

    The public relations flop of the recent visit, without the children, to the country’s media capital must have been a a panic inducing, wake-up call for the vacuous Diva.

    What to do? Desperate times call for desperate measures! Behold Palin scrambling desperately onto the Republican crazy train, thrusting her children into the media spotlight. Works every time.

  4. I’m so sick of Palin running her mouth. She has enough money in her greedy little pockets to cover her family 10 times over.

  5. More inspirational material on Whaddya Know, Fairbanks Edition from this weekend.

  6. Very much considerate enter but there are some nub where I last wishes as not agree. But comprehensive its altogether good.

  7. Wow how could you be so cruel and write this blog about Sarah Palin? I am sure that you couldnt do a better job than her if you tried……. Wait, you dont have a life because your taking cheap shots at people on a blog.

    • The “death panel” thing was deemed the biggest lie of 2009. Hence, Sarah Palin is a liar, a very poorly educated liar at that. Any person that forgoes the opportunity to engage in end of life planning such as medical proxies, advance directives, powers of attorney and/or living wills because Palin refers to them as “death panels” is as stupid as she is.

  8. A word to Sarah~~~You Sarah are one of the worst in the GOP.Teaparty whatever the hell you call yourselves When you stupidly began your crusade against the healthcare bill with that death panel crap I made a comment on Lynnrockets and said I was going to do a Living Will. My comment from 2009 I noticed is included in this This Post from Lynnrockets.Scroll up and you’ll see it.Well Sarah guess what?I’m a couple of years older and “Death Panels” Didn’t kill me, actually I feel pretty good (Thanks to the Foresight of FDR and a host of “Highly intelligent Statesmen”Politicians who by the way had a Heart unlike your (Well their not yours anymore)Republican Thugs!By the way Sarah I’ve read quite a bit about “The Alaskan deaths” because of poor Govt.management during your Queenly Reign So I think I’m entitled to call you out on your nonsensical ravings.One more thing us real Americans don’t appreciate the way you talk about our President
