Rush Limbaugh got very excited on his show today because he believes he's finally divined the real reason that Democrats are trying to reform health care. They want to kill off the elderly, just like Mao and Stalin did, because senior citizens vote and remember Reagan and really it just goes off the rails from there. Here's a sample quote:
Who are we targeting in health care? Old people. Rationing the care of old people...
And then it hit me....What's the first thing Mao se Tung did? What was the cultural revolution? He took out the educated people. He took out people who had a cultural, historical memory of China's past.
This conspiracy theory is worthy of Glenn Beck.
