LOL ::: President seeks $500,000 for ads to rebut Palin

Read the whole piece... this guy doesn't agree with Palin, but this is really embarrassing for Obama. (That's two in one day. Maroon.)

Another e-mail from hit my inbox yesterday. The subject: Sarah Palin.

It begins: "Right now, Sarah Palin is on a highly publicized, nationwide book tour, attacking President Obama and his plan for health reform at every turn."

The mail goes on to say "It's dangerous. Remember, this is the person who coined the term "Death Panels" -- and opened the flood gates for months of false attacks by special interests and partisan extremists."

"Whatever lie comes next will be widely covered by the media, then constantly echoed by right-wing attack groups and others who are trying to defeat reform."

"So we're setting a big goal: $500,000 in the next week to help push back against Sarah Palin and her allies.....We need to be prepared. And we're counting on you help. Can you chip in $5?"

So it has come to this: a sitting president soliciting donations for counter-attack ads on a former VP nominee hockey mom that most of the mainstream media rediculed in the last election. If her claims are so outrageous, why bother spending the money to respond? Maybe because a lot of people are listening to her, and many of them might just agree with what she is saying.

I don't think it helps the conservative cause to exaggerate the health care bill's possible impact (there are enough awful things in the bill right there in black and white)....the Obama e-mail states that Palin claimed on Rush Limbaugh that Americans "could face jail time as punishment" if they didn't buy health insurance. This is technically true, but only because punishment for tax evasion could include jail time; and one would have to not only fail to buy insurance but also fail to pay the 2.5% income tax in lieu that the bill requires, and have a judge or jury hand down a jail sentence.

But in any case, hyping the bill's possible impact with extreme statements just gives the bill's supporters ammunition: when the wilder claims are shot down all of the conservative's arguments become suspect.

My advice: don't listen to either Obama, Pelosi, Reid or Palin. Question everything they say because both sides have a lot invested in the outcome and they both want to be "right." After all, both Obama and Palin are running for president.
