LIVE BLOG: Palin Is Lying, He Says

He doesn’t call her by name, but she does get billing as a “prominent politician.” Actually she is a private citizen, but it’s no less accurate than the rest  of this. He is not going to “kill” grandma. No, but he is going to slash Medicare and set up these friendly panels to help decide the “best” and most “effective” coverage. Just like the NICE panels in the UK, which decide who gets what care. He may be giving the liberals a feel-good moment, but I suspect he’s antagonizing many others.
