I think it highlights three important points.

1) Palin proves Canada's Sicialised Healthcare is more affordable.

2) Americans go there for Healthcare, not the reverse as the GOP claim.

3) Sara supports "good union jobs"!

I hate to admitted, I do not vote. But if Sarah Palin runs in 2012, I will vote for her. That's what this country needs that kind of change.

Yet another shining demonstration that there simply is no end to what Sarah Palin will be a hypocrite about.

"The Herald notes that Palin had reportedly previously told a different version of this story in which her brother was treated in Juneau after a ferry trip"

Yea, I think I'll cast 2 votes for Sarah. Here's a candidate who lies but has the courage to at least be proud she is a liar. Hope you run in 2012 Sarah.

I personally don't think she realizes that when she says one thing in Alaska and another in Iowa that the technology is there to expose her. I think she lives by the notion like kids scared of monsters do. They put their head under the covers and act like if they can't see the monster then the monster can't see them.

This is Sara Palin, she just ignores her stupidity when exposed and makes a feeble attempt to chalk it up to "liberal media" going after her unfairly while she does shows on liberal media and pays liberal media to advertise her speaking engagements.

She is a hypocrite and the farthest thing from what this country needs. I could go on for days about why she isn't even close to being qualified but the main point would be her own party doesn't think she is a viable candidate.

She needs to stick to reality television and book tour signings because she clearly isn't capable of handling anything inside the beltway.

You're absolutely correct.

But none of your valid facts matter because the only thing her supporters care about is their fantasies about her handling what's inside their belt BUCKLE.

I would like to comment on two of your posts.

1. When one considers what Canadians pay in taxes, balanced against what they get in health care "affordable" is open to debate.

2. Americans are not going to Canada for health care, they can't get it! You need a Canadian citizenship to get health care unless you're injured while traveling in Canada, then you'll get care needed to save your life. The truth is that Canadians are comming to the US for health care if they can afford it.

Maybe Tina Fey should go to Canada.

The Hollywood sewer pied pipers to your home said at the awards last night that she is glamorous...WHAT?

Do they give out free face lifts so that the next time she plays Palin, she at least could come close to Palins good looks.

That squashed and squinched face of Feys resembles the wicked witch of the west.

She is the new Hollywood hero since the SNL skit.

Ohh, my gawwwwwd, this can't be true for Palin?

Using "socialized medicine".

Tut tut tut.

(If you "need a Canadian citizenship to get health care" (as stated above), you certainly don't need to show citizenship in Britain to qualify for health CARE as I have availed of their medical services on visits and have never (repeat Never) paid for health CARE - only a few pounds for antibiotics.)

She was five years old! Did you expect her to kick, and scream to her parents it was going to be against her future policies.

I'll gladly pass your comment on to my wife, who is a Canadian citizen.

These hyper critics wouldn't even know about Palin as a child unless she was an exceedingly honest person. They're just continued examples of Democrat mean spiritedness.

The very-elegant-at-the-Oscar-Fey does not need a face lift to pay Palin or anyone else because she nails stupidity right on the head when she plays Palin.
