Some just can not come to terms that the “death panel” lie was a lie. A huge lie.
But there will always be some right wingers out there that will not give it up.
Sarah Palin ruined Christmas for at least one of these wingnuts.
Bunny from Parsons, Kansas called CSPAN to complain about the passage of the health care reform bill by the Senate.
“I have taken my Christmas wreath off my house. I have taken all the lights down. This is supposed to be a nation under God, and it isn’t. They absolutely have ruined Christmas.”

Sarah Palin, one of my favorite wingnuts and intellectual dimwits, stirred up all grandmas and grandpas with her “death panel” declaration last week.
It turns out that like Gingrich she was all for end of life planning (which is what she now calls “death panels”) while governor of Alaska. In fact in April of 2008 Alaska had a Healthcare Decisions Day when she proclaimed the following:
“WHEREAS, Healthcare Decisions Day is designed to raise public awareness of the need to plan ahead for healthcare decisions, related to end of life care and medical decision-making whenever patients are unable to speak for themselves and to encourage the specific use of advance directives to communicate these important healthcare decisions.”
