The Hypocrisy Continues

...from the everybody's favorite half-governor, Simple Sarah.

Seems behind all the screaming about "socialized medicine" and how the US should remain the only country in the civilized world without some kind of national health care, she and her family routinely crossed the border to Canada to partake of their health care system. Oh, the hypocrisy. Oh, the humanity. When will it ever stop?

From Huffington Post:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin -- who has gone to great lengths to hype the supposed dangers of a big government takeover of American health care -- admitted over the weekend that she used to get her treatment in Canada's single-payer system.

"We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada," Palin said in her first Canadian appearance since stepping down as governor of Alaska. "And I think now, isn't that ironic?"

The irony, one guesses, is that Palin now views Canada's health care system as revolting: with its government-run administration and 'death-panel'-like rationing. Clearly, however, she and her family once found it more alluring than, at the very least, the coverage available in rural Alaska.
