Sarah Palin was, of course, an idiot to suggest that socialized medicine inevitably leads to bureaucratically administered euthanasia. From the (UK) Daily Mail:
Hospitals may be withholding food and drink from elderly patients so they die quicker to cut costs and save on bad spaces, leading doctors have warned.
Thousands of terminally ill people are placed on a 'care pathway' every year to hasten the ends of their lives.
But in a letter to the Daily Telegraph, six doctors who specialise in elderly care said hospitals across the UK could be using the controversial practice to ease the pressure on resources.
Boy, is that Sarah Palin an idiot or what?
