It’s not a death panel but we’re getting rid of it again.

Remember how the left and the media insisted that Sarah Palin was “lying” about death panels but suddenly decided to drop them?

Just 5 days ago Rep Blumenauer’s (D-Shhhh) memo leaked that they were back in but we don’t want to talk about it.

Well now they are out again:

The Obama administration, reversing course, will revise a Medicare regulation to delete references to end-of-life planning as part of the annual physical examinations covered under the new health care law, administration officials said Tuesday.

The move is an abrupt shift, coming just days after the new policy took effect on Jan. 1.

The article in the Times mentions Palin specifically:

Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate, said in the summer of 2009 that “Obama’s death panel” would decide who was worthy of health care. Representative John A. Boehner of Ohio, the House Republican leader who is to become speaker on Wednesday, said the provision could be a step “down a treacherous path toward government-encouraged euthanasia.”

…but somehow omits Rep Blumenauer’s (D-Shhhh) memo and the fallout thereof. The Hill manages to bring it up while still calling it a “lie”.

But you can’t blame the times, with 43 candidates she endorsed being sworn in today perhaps Palin and Boehner are the story today.
