Palindrome

All political rant seems to tend toward science fiction.  Sarah Palin as reported by Talking Points Memo:

“The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society’ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.”

So it is, so it is.  It's not the America we know and love, but it's very familiar nonetheless.  How many books, stories, movies have featured exactly this moment?  And do we not know, seeing or reading them, which are the good and which the bad guys?  Only the bad guys never know.
