Denouement For Death Panels

November 16, 2010

It was voted “The Biggest Lie of 2009” by the St. Petersburg Times “Truth-O-Meter.”  Sarah Palin’s Facebook article that claimed Obamacare would lead to rationing and the creation of Death Panels of bureaucrats to decide who lives and who dies.

The Media and Blogosphere agreed.  Sarah Palin’s article was an insane, right-wing, conspiracy theory.  Death Panels were nonsense.  They wouldn’t really happen.  Besides, only a lunatic would actually want them.

Fast forward to today, 2010… Yesterday’s lies are tomorrow’s only real solution.  Or so says insane,  right-wing, conspiracy theorist,  Paul Krugman of the New York Times.  At about the 6:20 point in the following video he says that ” the real solution [for a balanced budget] is a combination of Death Panels and sales taxes.” » ‘This Week’: NYT’s Krugman Recommends ‘Death Panels’ to Help Balance Budget, WaPo’s Marcus Says ‘Deranged’ to Not Raise Taxes.

I guess lies aren’t what they used to be.
