This calls for a big helping of Alaska word salad

Jeb, Jeb, Jeb. Remember, you're supposed to be the smart one in the family:

"Jeb Bush, defending his efforts to keep alive Terri Schiavo, a brain-damaged woman, when he was governor of Florida, suggested on Friday that patients on Medicare should be required to sign advance directives dictating their care if they become incapacitated. A similar proposal by President Obama -- that doctors should be paid to advise patients on end-of-life decisions -- became a political firestorm in 2009, when Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate, claimed that the legislation would give bureaucrats the power to decide if some frail or disabled people were deserving of medical care. The assertion was shown to be false."

Sheesh. All Obamacare proposed was to let doctor's charge for talking to their patients about living wills. This guy wants to require them to have one on file ... or else, what? Thet'll withhold their SS check? Send in the jackbooted thugs? What?

He's so out of practice. (Either that or he's always been so overrated.)
