Palin, leader of the liars

So we knew she was leader of the stupids, and the racists, and the grifters... but turns out she is leader of the liars too.

Palin is out there stumping along with the other big forces against sane health care reform trying to trot out this notion that the "Obama Death Plan" is about denying care.

Here she is in her wing-nuttiestness

The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? 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. Sarah Palin

I'll tell you what is Downright Evil lying to people and scaring them. All this while in the real world people are already dying due to lack of coverage, being denied coverage for the crazy policy of pre-existing conditions, being turned away at hospitals because the have the wrong health insurance, etc. etc. etc.

The premise of these Health Care Fear Mongers is that everything is hunky-dorey out there and so we can't change anything. Well guess what, that is a lie, blatant, hurtful, intentional and yes evil.
