The Further Adventures of Bible Spice


So, the far right’s crusader against socialism, abortion and government spending is going to Canada.  She is giving a speech at a hospital that is government-run, provides abortions and is a socialist entity.  But don’t worry, she’s getting paid so the hypocrisy doesn’t count.  Think Progress notes:

Sarah Palin To Speak At A Fundraiser For A Socialist Canadian Hospital

According to the Hamilton Spectator, Sarah Palin has been contracted to speak at a fundraiser for the Juravinski Cancer Centre and St. Peter’s Hospital in Canada. “This is quite the coup,” said Gabe Macaluso, an organizer for the event.

Palin might be surprised to learn that the hospital she is fundraising for runs counter to her professed beliefs:

St. Peter’s Hospital is a public hospital within the national Canadian healthcare system. In Palin’s worldview, universal, government-insured health care is “socialism.”

St. Peter’s Hospital performs abortions. Palin, a staunch anti-choice zealot, has protested outside of abortion clinics and has refused to denounce abortion clinic bombers as terrorists.

St. Peter’s Hospital, through its Centre for Studies in Aging, offers “advanced directives.” Palin tried to derail health reform earlier this year by falsely labeling advanced directive reimbursements as “death panels.”

But like I said, she is getting paid so principles and talking points can be put aside for the moment.  That’s our bible spice girl…
