"Obamacare is Now in Jeopardy of Repeal Because of Her"

That is Sarah Palin's lawyer Thomas Van Flein, as quoted in an in-depth profile of the 'Cuda in this Sunday's New York Times Magazine.

Lisa Murkowski could not be reached for comment.
Van Flein, a boyish-looking 46-year-old employment-law specialist who majored in political science at the University of Alaska, receives a $10,000 monthly retainer from SarahPAC. In return, he dispenses more than just legal advice. Van Flein contributes research to some of Palin’s Facebook posts and speeches and is a staunch political advocate. (“Regardless of whoever else does or doesn’t say it, I’m saying that Obamacare is now in jeopardy of repeal because of her,” Van Flein proclaimed to me.)
Read the whole thing.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is undoubtedly one of the single most egregious, odious, and ironically-named bills ever to be passed in Washington, D.C. It's not even accurate to call it 'sausage' - it's more like mystery meat, and the more we find out about it, the worse it gets.

Nearly 6 out of 10 Americans continue to favor full repeal of the bill, 8 months after its passage.

Translation: If you want to get elected President in 2012, you better favor full-on, unequivocal repeal of this heinous piece of legislation.
