Liars, Idiots, and Crazies Oh My!

In a previous post, I suggested Sarah Palin was batshit crazy.  Perhaps this was unfair.  There’s a chance she’s perfectly sane.  This would mean she’s either just an idiot or she’s deliberately lying.  I’m not really sure.

Sarah Palin is not alone.  Other Republicans that fall into this group include Rush Limbaugh (de facto leader of the Republican Party), Newt Gingrich (who wishes he was the de facto leader of the Republican Party), Sen. Grassley, Dick Armey (FreedomWorks founder and townhall crazy promoter), and many, many others.

Republicans don’t want health care reform for several reasons.  Primarily they want Obama to fail and to use his failure to get legislation passed as a springboard for their electoral rebound in 2010 (ala 1994, following the defeat of President Clinton’s health care reform plan).  They also don’t want it because Obama does — Republicans play the role of opposition party better than anyone, never mind if it’s in the best interest of the country (see stimulus package).  Finally, they say they don’t want government to get between doctors and patients, but they really love insurance companies (and their high dollar contributions) to get between doctors and patients — quite honestly, they see this as a gravy train they don’t want to end.

So, Palin, Limbaugh, Gingrich, Grassley, and Armey may not be insane after all.  There’s a chance they may not even be idiots.  Perhaps they’re just lying scumbags shamelessly scaring the American public into keeping the disastrous health care system in place.  Of course, there’s another option — they may be crazy, idiots, and liars.
