Death panels my ass, sez conservative pundit

… before getting tarred and feathered by the rightwingnut community.

Let's be honest about death counseling, writes the normally-wharrrgarrrrbling Charles ‘krap’ Krauthammer at Really? Gee, that’d be a first.

”Let's see if we can have a reasoned discussion about end-of-life counseling. We might start by asking Sarah Palin to leave the room. I've got nothing against her. She's a remarkable political talent. But there are no "death panels" in the Democratic health care bills, and to say that there are is to debase the debate.”
Actually, liberals are already putting together a mission statement for one of the first of many Death Panels. A draft supplied to a WTF operative mentions “performing forced abortions in order to sell infants’ stem cells” and “killing aged parents in order to supply organs to illegal immigrants.” Any blood spilled will be mixed with Holy Eucharist dough, to be used in our pagan rituals with gays and lesbians.
