Yeah, her again. Back with her familiar mix of drama, over-the-top rhetoric, mendacity, and stupid. She's turned word salad into video salad set to music. With bears. Seriously, the two minutes and 12 seconds of that video is the most tedious two minutes and 12 seconds you will spend all week. And, of course, death panels.
The former governor of Alaska and vice presidential candidate posted a new video from SarahPAC, her PAC, to her YouTube, Twitter and Facebook accounts on Monday called “Just Sayin.’” The two-minute video cycles through clips of the media talking about Palin’s warning of “death panels” in Obamacare, starting with criticism before transitioning to clips that Palin was right all along.
That's what they've got on the right. The half-governor, failed vice presidential candidate reheating the same death panel lie that was debunked four years ago. (One more time. The law prohibits the Independent Payment Advisory Board—the "death panel"—from rationing care.) Anyway, at least this lie is something she can manage to stick to, just about the only thing in her political career thus far. There must be lots of money in it for her.

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.
