OMG!!! That long windy Reagan quote that Palin launched into in her closing. Guess what!
Palin's final quote was from Ronald Reagan, warning that without vigilance, "you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children, and our children's children, what it once was like in America when men were free."
In fact, Reagan was not warning about a general lack of vigilance about freedom, he was warning what would happen if Medicare was enacted.
For more on Reagan's fight against Medicare see Chait's source Dewitt.
OMG!!! They brought it up. The real meaning of the line Republicans want to leave you at the end of the debate is an early 1960s far right wing talking point that Medicare = Loss of Freedom.
Reminder: We Republicans are the party against Medicare.
There seem to be some real paleoconservatives in the Sarah Palin speechwriting shop. This is so much a reminder of her convention speech.
"We grow good people in our small towns, with honest and sincerity and dignity."
Which turns out to be from notorious American fascist Pegler
You can put lipstick on it, but these coded shout outs are truly hateful.
