And now the health insurance debate becomes some gruesome mix of camp and high farce. Sarah Palin contributes her policy ideas for health insurance reform:

The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's "death panel" so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their "level of productivity in society," whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.


You thought it wouldn't get worse? Really?
