Obama's Philosopher King
"Ezekiel Emanuel [EE] is upset. The president's health care czar sees the growing resistance to his vision, to his brave new world of government-run 'communitarian' health care in which politicians and bureaucrats control one-sixth of the economy and 100% of our bodies. He doesn't quite understand how it all came apart on him, but he does know who started the unraveling: Sarah Palin. ... And he wonders, as have so many others, what it takes to put a stake through her heart? People should listen to him, not Sarah Palin. He is the philosopher king of Democratic health care. And he went to Harvard, you know. ... He has a medical degree and a doctorate in political philosophy from Harvard. The only Harvard she knows is the chunk of ice off Prince William Sound, Harvard Glacier. ... She cut through the rhetoric, the academic jargon, and adoring press to the truth: [EE] and Barack Obama and the Democrat-led Congress are putting in place a health care system that will control the lives--and deaths--of citizens to an extent never seen in this republic. ... It's as if the waitress at the Harvard Faculty Club had, instead of a check, taken out a baseball bat and cold-cocked him. ... This is not supposed to happen--he went to Harvard, you know", Stuart Schwartz (SS) at American Thinker, 2 September 2009, link: http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/09/sarah_palin_vs_dr_death.html.
Way to go SS. Way to go Sarah. This story shows the failure of America's farm support policy. Huh? Looking at EE, Philosopher King, I think we should subsidize the production of hemlock.
