Failin' Palin the health care hypocrite

You'd think this callow buffoon would have dried up and blown away by now, but there's people out there who feed Sarah Palin's quest for world domination. So the circus continues.

Now Palin - who opposes health care reform - has told a Canadian audience that her family used to go to Canada to get health care when she was young.

If a public medical care system is good enough for the Failin' One, isn't it good enough for everyone else too? (Canada began its health care system in 1966, when Palin was only 2.)

Isn't this the same system that she says is a "death panel"?

Palin is either lying now or was lying back in 2007. In 2007, she said her brother was taken by ferry to Juneau, Alaska, to treat a burned foot. Now she says he was rushed by train to Whitehorse, Yukon.

Even if Palin isn't a liar who changes her story, her using a public health care system that she'd deny to everyone else underscores one of the reasons health reform hasn't passed. Just as rules don't apply to Sarah Palin, they don't apply to Congress either. Thus, Congress is covered by its own taxpayer-funded health plan - instead of the broken system that covers the rest of the country.

We should pass a law that says Congress has to live by the same disastrous health care system everyone else suffers. Then maybe they'll pass health care reform.
