Till death panels us do part!

Saying "I guess Palin wasn't wrong after all," a friend emailed me a video link about Paul Krugman and death panels,

Watch it and weep.

And if you're having the same "deja vu all over again" feeling that I'm having, that's only because there is nothing new about Paul Krugman channeling Sarah Palin.

As I pointed out in April in a post titled "A Palin lie becomes a Krugman truth," Krugman was channeling Palin even back then, and now he's just repeating himself.

This makes me wonder who was channeling whom when, because Sarah Palin's death panels remark was simply an attempt to criticize the approach Krugman and his ilk freely admit to having. Yet her opponents ridiculed her for imagining the death panels, which were said to be a figment of her imagination.

By now, I think it's obvious that Paul Krugman does not want the death panels to be a figment of Sarah Palin's imagination; he wants them to be an operative part of Obamacare. Hence he is speaking up. Again.

Other than repeat myself, I don't know what to say.

At the very least, common sense suggests to me that when Paul Krugman and Sarah Palin agree on the existence of something, it's very likely that there is a there there.

Mega-kudos for this post Eric. In a more fair and just world this blog post would be front page news on every major news site. I don't think the left has even begun to absorb the fact that their worshipped leftist sage and icon, Paul Krugman, has in point of fact completely validated Sarah Palin's "death panel" fears in FULL.. it's established 'fact' among leftists that Sarah Palin's talk of death panels is proof positive that she's a clueless idiot. These videos from Krugman need to be thrown in their faces again and again and again.
