I think Sarah Palin’s “death panel” coinage clarified the stakes and resonated in a way that “rationing” and other lingo never quite did. She launched it, and she made it stick. (…)
And finally I don’t think this is any time for NR to be joining the Frumsters and deploring the halfwit vulgarity of déclassé immoderates like Palin.
This is a big-stakes battle: If we cross this bridge, there’s no going back. Being “moderate” is not a good strategy.
PS: Mark Steyn sits in for Rush Limbaugh today, from noon to 3PM ET.
