Yup, the whack job from Alaska has decided to embrace her inner fucking crazy and go the full Monty on the distortion of what is being proposed in the health care reform plans.

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.

Democrats hate special needs kids and want them dead. That is why they vote against funding for special education and special needs kids. No wait, that was Trig's mommy. My bad.

But, this time it's not just her saying it! People agree with her, totally. In her facebook posting, Sarah Palin quotes renowned expert in the batshit arts Michelle Bachmann as a source for her concern.

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.

The media has a problem here of their own making. The crazy are truly ruling the asylum over in the elephant party. It's either time to call their bullshit, get them the medications they deserve, or call up a witch doctor and get the evil spirits out of their body.

I would love for Trig Palin to get annual check ups, top notch health care, even if his mom is insane. I am tolerant that way. But I guess I don't get to be on the death panel then.

Update: I have a special needs child and I struggle with medical insurance issues big time. This latest offensive spew from Palin really hits home. Is she suggesting that my support of reform can be classified as a desire for infanticide? She can go to hell.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
