Sarah Palin leading them by the nose...

Today on the Morn­ing Meet­ing MSNBC con­tin­ued to attempt to dis­credit Sarah Palin’s vic­tory by claim­ing that she was “for death pan­els” before she was against them due to the Health­care Deci­sion Day. As you might guess the White House, msm and Lefty blogs are all over this like ants at a pic­nic, one exam­ple

In olden times, Palin might have made this claim at a speech or dur­ing a news con­fer­ence where reporters might have asked ques­tions like: “What proof do you have?” or “Aren’t you just try­ing to scare people?”

But Palin does not risk that. She takes no ques­tions. She has done her duty as a rabid respon­der. She has rung the toc­sin, sounded the alarm, lit the sig­nal fire.

Truth? Accu­racy? Responsibility?

Not her territory.

…or per­haps like ants tak­ing poi­son back to the nest because their charge ensures that her lat­est highly foot­noted (Politico’s Roger Simon who owns the quote above must have missed those links) response will get a ton of atten­tion:

I join mil­lions of Amer­i­cans in express­ing appre­ci­a­tion for the Sen­ate Finance Committee’s deci­sion to remove the pro­vi­sion in the pend­ing health care bill that autho­rizes end-​of-​life con­sul­ta­tions (Sec­tion 1233 of HR 3200). It’s grat­i­fy­ing that the voice of the peo­ple is get­ting through to Con­gress; how­ever, that pro­vi­sion was not the only dis­turb­ing detail in this leg­is­la­tion; it was just one of the more obvi­ous ones.

and that doesn’t even cover her actual response deep in the post

Ide­ally, the del­i­cate deci­sions about how to man­age life’s end would be made in a set­ting that is neu­tral in both appear­ance and fact. Yes, it’s good to have a doctor’s per­spec­tive. But Sec­tion 1233 goes beyond facil­i­tat­ing doc­tor input to pre­fer­ring it. Indeed, the mea­sure would have an inter­ested party — the gov­ern­ment — recruit doc­tors to sell the elderly on liv­ing wills, hos­pice care and their asso­ci­ated providers, pro­fes­sions and orga­ni­za­tions. You don’t have to be a right-​wing wacko to ques­tion that approach.” [5]

I agree. Last year, I issued a procla­ma­tion for “Health­care Deci­sions Day.” [6] The procla­ma­tion sought to increase the public’s knowl­edge about cre­at­ing liv­ing wills and estab­lish­ing pow­ers of attor­ney. There was no incen­tive to choose one option over another. There was cer­tainly no finan­cial incen­tive for physi­cians to push any­thing. In fact, the procla­ma­tion explic­itly called on med­ical pro­fes­sion­als and lawyers “to vol­un­teer their time and efforts” to pro­vide infor­ma­tion to the public.

Com­par­ing the “Health­care Deci­sions Day” procla­ma­tion to Sec­tion 1233 of HR 3200 is ridicu­lous. The two are like apples and oranges. The attempt to link the two shows how des­per­ate the pro­po­nents of nation­al­ized health care are to shift the debate away from the dis­turb­ing details of their bill.

This woman is lead­ing them by the nose. If I’m the Dems I’m almost as afraid as the Rom­ney 2012 cam­paign. Every time she hits the dems on gov­ern­ment health­care she grazes Mitt.

Update: Oh and those olden times Roger, were they back when the media was cov­er­ing John Edwards ass?

Update 2:
Hey maybe this is Mitt’s coun­ter­punch. Old­est trick in the book.

Update 3:
How pop­u­lar is Palin, based on today’s post stats she is more than 50 times more pop­u­lar than porn.

Update 4: SISU nails it.

And her mas­ter­ful play­ing of the national spin machine — check out her Face­Book answer to the president’s diss­ing of her “Death Pan­els” meme — con­tin­ues to leave the spin­meis­ters reel­ing. As Judge Napoli­tano just told Bret Baier, all Sarah has to remem­ber is that free­dom rang “200 years ago because peo­ple like her were not afraid to chal­lenge authority.”

Yup.

Today on the Morning Meeting MSNBC continued to attempt to discredit Sarah Palin’s victory by claiming that she was “for death panels” before she was against them due to the Healthcare Decision Day. As you might guess the White House, msm and Lefty blogs are all over this like ants at a picnic, one example

In olden times, Palin might have made this claim at a speech or during a news conference where reporters might have asked questions like: “What proof do you have?” or “Aren’t you just trying to scare people?”

But Palin does not risk that. She takes no questions. She has done her duty as a rabid responder. She has rung the tocsin, sounded the alarm, lit the signal fire.

Truth? Accuracy? Responsibility?

Not her territory.

…or perhaps like ants taking poison back to the nest because their charge ensures that her latest highly footnoted (Politico’s Roger Simon who owns the quote above must have missed those links) response will get a ton of attention:

I join millions of Americans in expressing appreciation for the Senate Finance Committee’s decision to remove the provision in the pending health care bill that authorizes end-of-life consultations (Section 1233 of HR 3200). It’s gratifying that the voice of the people is getting through to Congress; however, that provision was not the only disturbing detail in this legislation; it was just one of the more obvious ones.

and that doesn’t even cover her actual response deep in the post

“Ideally, the delicate decisions about how to manage life’s end would be made in a setting that is neutral in both appearance and fact. Yes, it’s good to have a doctor’s perspective. But Section 1233 goes beyond facilitating doctor input to preferring it. Indeed, the measure would have an interested party — the government — recruit doctors to sell the elderly on living wills, hospice care and their associated providers, professions and organizations. You don’t have to be a right-wing wacko to question that approach.” [5]

I agree. Last year, I issued a proclamation for “Healthcare Decisions Day.” [6] The proclamation sought to increase the public’s knowledge about creating living wills and establishing powers of attorney. There was no incentive to choose one option over another. There was certainly no financial incentive for physicians to push anything. In fact, the proclamation explicitly called on medical professionals and lawyers “to volunteer their time and efforts” to provide information to the public.

Comparing the “Healthcare Decisions Day” proclamation to Section 1233 of HR 3200 is ridiculous. The two are like apples and oranges. The attempt to link the two shows how desperate the proponents of nationalized health care are to shift the debate away from the disturbing details of their bill.

This woman is leading them by the nose. If I’m the Dems I’m almost as afraid as the Romney 2012 campaign. Every time she hits the dems on government healthcare she grazes Mitt.

Update 4: SISU nails it.

And her masterful playing of the national spin machine — check out her FaceBook answer to the president’s dissing of her “Death Panels” meme — continues to leave the spinmeisters reeling. As Judge Napolitano just told Bret Baier, all Sarah has to remember is that freedom rang “200 years ago because people like her were not afraid to challenge authority.”

Yup.
