Calling Dr. Palin, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard

My goodness gracious, Sarah Palin is at it again. That’s right folks, inasmuch as the Republican Party has failed to come up with any health care reform legislation, the quitting ex-governor of Alaska has done so all by her little self. The Palin plan is like one of those things that you think is stupid when you first hear it, but then when you think about it for awhile you realize that it is even dumber than you first thought.

Here we go. First of all she claims that her plan will not have any of those pesky “death panels”. But that is just the start of her health system overhaul. Remember when all of those bat-crazy elderly tea-baggers were appearing at Town Hall Meetings to express their opposition to any public health insurance plan because they demanded that the government “leave my medicare alone”? Well, Palins plan will not only alter their medicare coverage, it will cancel it entirely. Palin wants to help the elderly by simply “…providing Medicare recipients with vouchers that allow them to purchase their own coverage;…”

Great plan Sarah. I’m sure it took a lot of deep thinking to come up with that one. Who was your expert source, Piper? Let’s think this through for a minute. We take medicare away from the elderly and give them cash vouchers to purchase private health insurance from for-profit private insurance companies. That should be easy because none of those elderly people should have any pre-existing medical conditions that would prohibit them from obtaining coverage in the private sector right? I’m also sure that all of those elderly folks with failing concentration problems and “dare I say”, things such as early onset dementia should have no problem whatsoever comparing hundreds of different insurance plans and determining which one best fits their individual circumstances. After all, they have all the time in the world to read those policies because they are too old and feeble to work. That fine print shouldn’t confuse them or add any additional stress to their lives either.

Sign me up, Sarah. You are a real genius.

GETTING BETTER

(sung to the Beatles song “Getting Better”)

She’s getting better all the time

She did really bad while in school (Sarah can’t complain)
The intelligence of a fool (Sarah can’t complain)
In each college town, Grades tumbling down
Attending just safety schools (foolish rules)

We’ve got to admit it’s no better (better)
Not getting better all this time (it can get much worse)
Just how did John McCain fail to vet her (vet her)
He failed to vet her. That’s being kind

Now Mac’s just an angry old man
His Sarah Palin pick was panned
She’s a coo-coo bird, that can’t speak a word
A pregnancy that was unplanned

We’ve got to admit it’s no better (better)
Not getting better all this time (it can get much worse)
Just how did John McCain fail to vet her (vet her)
He failed to vet her. That’s being kind

Still not getting better all this time
Not getting better all this time
Better, better, better
Not getting better all this time
Better, better, better

He shouldn’t have picked that dumb woman
Dead-beater was falling apart and would never be loved
Man she was green and also really mean
His choice should have been much better planned (Ooh)

I submit Romney was better (Better)
Romney was better all the time (Palin made it worse)
McCain wishes he never met her (Met her)
Could have been better McCain opines
Could have been much better Mac opines
Romney was better all the time
Better, better, better
Romney was better all the time
Better, better, better
Romney was much better all the time
