Latest Excuse in the “Death Panel” Controversy
- I didn't touch your bicycle.
- It was broken when I borrowed it.
In other words, there are no death panels and the Republicans are responsible for them.
It looks like at least one Republican (and that's enough to blame them all) made the mistake I warned about a few years ago and tried writing general-purpose bills to prevent a future Terri Schindler Schiavo case.
By the way, I suspect that one reason leftists try to get some conservatives on board one of their bandwagons is to be able to blame them when they run into trouble. This might be another case of that.
