Wingnut Watch

A google search for the phrase"obama's kill grandma bill" brings 3,140 hits. Take the quotes off and the number goes up to 410,000. The new wingnut talking point is apparently that Obama wants to kill old people.

WorldNetDaily, always on the cutting edge of crazy, explains it here. It seems that the new healthcare bill under considerations calls for ""an explanation by the practitioner of the continuum of end-of-life services and supports available, including palliative care and hospice, and benefits for such services and supports that are available under this title."
WND highlights the phrase "including paliative care" as if it is smoking gun evidence of Obama's plot to kill the elderly. Apparently they are trusting that the typical WND reader doesn't know the meaning of the word "palliative", probably a fair assumption.
