Recent GOP VP nominee: batshit crazy

There seems to be a hurdle Sarah Palin faces:  what can she say or do to top the last stupid thing she said or did?  But, Sarah! succeeds.  In a recent Facebook post she suggests Obama’s health care proposal will include a panel that will decide who lives and who dies:

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.

An evil plan would be to scare the American people into fearing health care reform, but lying to them about the current proposals, stirring up the mob, so that no reform takes place and therefore, more and more people are denied treatment, more and more people avoid preventive care, and ultimately more and more people die unnecessarily.  That’s evil.

Sarah, we don’t wish ill on your son or you or anyone else in your family.  We want you and your family to live long, healthy, and productive lives.  I liked you more when you were just incompetent, corrupt, and unqualified.  Now, you’re still incompetent, corrupt, and unqualified, but with a heavy dose of crazy, and so the punchlines don’t have the sting they used to.  Now, the jokes seem a little off-color, like making fun of someone who really needs help.
