So Grassley pulls a Palin and shoves his foot in his mouth..... well, SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE (*say like Gomer Pyle). He's done the damage and is now happy to say: opps. That said, he goes on and has the ball to blame the internet. So much for the great party of personal responsibility.
Grassley Reverses Course: No Death Panels In Bill
That has got to be the stupidest response I have ever read."I was responding to a question at my town hall meetings," he told host Bob Schieffer. "I let my constituents set the agenda. A person that asked me that question was reading from language that they got off of the internet. It scared my constituents. And the specific language I used was language that the president had used at Portsmouth. And I thought that if he used the language, then if I responded exactly the same way, that I had an opposite concern about not using end-of-life counseling for saving money, then I was answering and relieving the fears that my constituents had."
