Palin still on death panel kick



By LINDSAY BEYERSTEIN

Don’t look now, but Sarah Palin is back on her death panel kick, just in time for Halloween.
No, really, don’t look. It just encourages the former governor of Alaska to recycle the exhaustively debunked allegation that health care reform will involve bringing the elderly and the disabled before “death panels” who will judge whether they are fit to live.

David Corn of Mother Jones caught Palin referencing the thoroughly debunked myth in her latest interview with the conservative website Newsmax. Oh, and she says she won’t rule out a presidential run in 2012.
