The Lies of Sarah Palin, Or,
I May Have To Start A New List

By now you've no doubt heard Sarah Palin's untrue and imbecilic assertion that "Obama's death panel" could decide if her Downs Syndrome child Trig (and I'm still not convinced that it's her kid), or her parents, "based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care." What you may not have heard is that she cited our favorite crazed congresscritter, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Wingnut), in the course of lying about health care reform:
Rep. Michele Bachmann highlighted the Orwellian thinking of the president’s health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the White House chief of staff, in a floor speech to the House of Representatives. I commend her for being a voice for the most precious members of our society, our children and our seniors.

TPM asked, in reporting this startling connection, if this could be the start of a Palin/Bachmann ticket in 2012 . To that, I can only laughingly quote our recent and unlamented Commander-in-Chief:

"Bring 'em on!"

Honestly, is there some central source for all this insanity? Are they all really drinking the same kool-aid? And who's supplying it, Timothy Leary or Jim Jones?

Damn...if I thought she was stupid before, now she is quoting Bachmann? That is downright scary.
