Hmm...Maybe Newt plans to fight Palin for the wingnut vote in the 2012 primaries??
This is what passes for an "elder statesman" in today's GOP.
**UPDATE** -- Glen Beck also backs up Palin on the "death panel" claim.
**UPDATE** -- And now it turns out that the scary end-of-life stuff was inserted into the health bill by a Republican Senator. Sabotage, perhaps?
**UPDATE** -- And now a wingnut protester is taking his entire bogus case to, you guessed it, Fox News: OMG, Obama wants to kill us!
**UPDATE** -- Now Neil Cavuto and Sen. John Isakson are finally pushing back on the "death panel" talk, pointing out how crazy it is.
