I Read It So You Don't Have To

For the last couple of months I've had St. Andrew's Daily FuckNuts in my RSS feed in order to keep tabs on what the loony left is talking about.  I have to admit, I'm tempted to remove it nearly every time I read a post but I figure somebody has to keep an eye on that psycho. 

Anyway, I thought I'd distill his daily expulsion of illogical, internally inconsistent ramblings into one, totally insane statement of the day:

I was unaware that Palin "declared April 16, 2008 'Health Decisions Day' in Alaska to encourage more citizens to talk to their health care providers about 'advanced directives.'" That's almost identical to the abandoned proposal she now calls a "death panel".

W-w-w-wha?  Asking people to talk to their doctors and make decisions about their future is the same as having unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats  try to convince you that you don't need that pacemaker? 

Of course, he notes that the provision was abandoned.  Certainly not because it, in effect, did exactly what Palin said.  Oh, no.  It just wasn't worth fighting over when they can just stealthily put in restrictions on available coverage that don't involve discussing it with the patient.  I almost think they put in that provision to make it seem like the patient had a role in deciding what coverages they could receive at an advanced age.  I'm sure it wouldn't have mattered if the 99-year-old wanted a pacemaker but at least he'd feel he was invited to the conversation.
