"Death Panels" Are Very Nazi NewAge-y Now

"According to Ben Smith over at Politico, President Barack Obama gave some theological weight to his health care plan during a phone call to a group of Rabbis the other day.  Referring to the belief that God decides during the Jewish New Year 'who shall live and who shall die,' Obama told the rebs, 'We are God’s partners in matters of life and death.'

In response to this statement I would like to make a subtle theological point:  No, we’re not.  For those of you who aren’t versed in the finer points of theology, let me try to simplify that for you: No. We’re not. Or to put it even more simply: No. We. Are. Not."

-- Andrew Klavan, making me shake my head to think that anyone could put a bumper sticker on his car about George W. Bush - saying "There's a village that's missing an idiot" - and then vote for Barack Obama, instead of reading Pajamas Media.
