read the article carefully. Murkowski is the brave and sensible one. It is easy enough for Democrats to tell the truth about how Palin is telling lies. It is very tough to be a decent and truthrul Republican. There is lots of pressure on the ones who tell the truth to change their stories and put out the same lies that Palin has told. Poor Johnny Isakson, the Republican Senator from Georgia, who is up for re-election in 2010, was teh sponsor of the consultations about living wills section in the House, and again in the seante. He knew the truth that there were no death panels involved in such consultations. He said it was not true, and was praised by a fw Demcorats for telling the truth. But that cause him trouble, so he had to say that the section in one of the bills was not exactly like the section he supportered. But the section in one of the House bills was also supported by two House Republicans. Very few in the media- and especially few on TV - report the details, and the detailed truth about who the sponsors were, and when, and on what bills, and what is in current law, and who voted for the current law - all the coverage is on the lies and the shouting. More turth comes out in the newspapers about this former GOP Lt. Gov. from New York, who now works with the insurance companies. She is a major person initiating and spreading the lies, among others, We have seen her photo on topix articles a couple fo times, but I never saw her on tV. Someone ought to invite her on a fair news program - not the right-wing nut ones which will present her lies as the truth. Do you suppose Keth could get her to go on? What fun that would be - or Jon S. or colbert? I would prefer a comedy show. she is a joke!
