Democratic Death Panel Watch, 10/05/2010.
Via Jim Geraghty, reports are in that the following three districts have been abandoned by the DCCC. Well, technically, all that’s happening is one week’s worth of ad purchases have been canceled by the DCCC. Then again, there’s only four weeks left – and it’s not like any of them are considered safe retentions at this point: IN-08. Open seat: the old incumbent is Brad | Read More »
I made a mistake in yesterday’s post on House races.
When I went along with calling what the Democrats are doing in the House ‘triage.’ Triage implies a situation where an overwhelming number of people have been injured and absolutely must be sorted out by severity of injury, in order to save as many as possible.

My first thought was ‘Death panels,’ too…
…as per the first comment in this Hot Air post about Kent Pankow. But that’s absurd: we’ve been told by all sorts of people that such things could never, ever, ever happen under a government-run universal health care regime.

Tell me again how death panels are an impossibility.
Better yet, tell Hazel Fenton, who nearly died at the hands of the Magical Space Unicorn universal health care system that the British have, and the Left wants us to have. AN 80-year-old grandmother who doctors identified as terminally ill and left to starve to death has recovered after her outraged daughter intervened. Hazel Fenton, from East Sussex, is alive nine months after medics ruled | Read More »
Sen. Grassley: ‘Death Panels’ are out.
Mind you, this is just from one version of the multiple health care rationing bills that the Democrats tried – and failed – to rush through Congress, but one step at a time. The Senate Finance Committee will drop a controversial provision on consultations for end-of-life care from its proposed healthcare bill, its top Republican member said Thursday. The committee, which has worked on putting | Read More »
Camille Paglia has no buyer’s remorse.
Which should relieve the administration, given what she might have written if she did: …I must confess my dismay bordering on horror at the amateurism of the White House apparatus for domestic policy. When will heads start to roll? I was glad to see the White House counsel booted, as well as Michelle Obama’s chief of staff, and hope it’s a harbinger of things to | Read More »
