People may not like her, but Sarah Palin won't let that stop her from offering her opinion on Sen. Max Baucus' health care bill. The former governor of Alaska and current lady of leisure posted a 1,000 word-essay entitled “Good Intentions Aren't Enough with Health Care Reform” on her Facebook page last night criticizing the bill's cost and taking a few shots at the man she'll try to unseat in 2012:

"In January 2008, presidential candidate Obama promised not to negotiate behind closed doors with health care lobbyists. However, last February, after serving only a few weeks in office, President Obama met privately at the White House with health care industry executives and lobbyists."

She also knocked Obama for not being able to find people jobs.

“Should we believe the administration’s claims about health care when their promises have proven so unreliable about the stimulus?”


The most surprising part about Palin's essay isn't its relative coherence or the lack of outlandish, "death panel"-type claims, but the 17 footnotes. Ibid? Come on.
