When Sarah Palin nailed President Obama's health care nationalization bill for containing provisions for "death panels," it all but stopped the behemoth bill in its tracks. The massive protests at the town halls, already in full force, picked up the battle cry, and Obama was forced to loudly whine about the comment to his supporters. The battle to stop this monstrous grab for power is still far from over, but this Palin salvo could well have crippled it (and to think, the former governor wrote his on her Facebook!).
It's also hilarious to see the Left's tactics being used against them. Arch-Leftist Saul Alinsky, in his Rules for Radicals "community organizing" book that Obama and his followers live by, states in Rule 13: "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it." That's exactly what Palin did to Obama's health nationalization bill with her "death panel" statement. Mr. President: How does it feel to get a taste of your own medicine?
