What exactly do those dastardly Democrats mean when they talk about “community standards” vis-à-vis health care reform? Only one thing, of course—death panels! But hold on, Mr. Gingrich and Mme. Palin, where are either of those terms written anywhere in the reform proposals?

Ahh, yes.  Mr. Gingrich has nailed it .... as Mr. Colbert so correctly pointed out,  the left wing has ingeniously inserted many dastardly concepts and policies into the health care “bill” by actually leaving them out.  What could be more sinister than not writing down the details of one’s conspiracy ?  Bravo, Newt !!  You found out that although there are at least 5 proposals in Congress and even more awaiting the opportunity to make amendments after the August Break, there really IS JUST ONE BILL ..... and the smoking-gun evidence of that fact is that IT HAS YET TO BE WRITTEN DOWN !! 
  (Hmmmm,  maybe it’s just written in lemon juice and will re-appear after the Break with sufficient heat.  Tres ingenious !!)
