Palin & Limbaugh and the Joys of Universal Healthcare

Sometimes politicians and political pundits say the darndest things!

Take that goofy half-Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. Last weekend, while speaking to a group in Canada, she admitted to “hustling over the border” to Canada while growing up so she could tap into Canada’s single-payer, low-cost healthcare system. Imagine that. On the campaign trail in 2008, and everywhere she goes as the Queen of The Tea Party, she blasts the “poor” quality of the Canadian healthcare system with it’s “death panels” and “rationed care”. Apparently it was good enough for her to take advantage of as a regular Alaskan gal, but not as a big-time important political player. Before politics: Canadian healthcare = good. After politics: Canadian healthcare = the devil’s hospital.

And how about that drug-addled blowhard Rush Limbaugh? He said that if Obama’s healthcare reform bill passes, Rush will leave the USA and move to Costa Rica. Brilliant! Rush claims that government-run healthcare is the worst kind of healthcare, however he threatens to move to a country with excellent healthcare that is run by–wait for it, wait for it–THE GOVERNMENT OF COSTA RICA! Isn’t that funny? Isn’t that a ratings booster? Isn’t that Rush a smart guy? If you don’t like what’s happening in your own country, move to another country that’s doing exactly what you say you hate.

What I love most about Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh is their incredible hypocrisy. Here are two people who live their lives in total opposition to “government-run healthcare” for me, but they have no problem with it when it suits their own purpose. They are lying cowards, and are robbing their foolish supporters by selling them a phony agenda that they ignore when it suits them.

May the two of them rot in a government-run version of hell.
