I think that the term 'Death Panels' was extremely effective and this is evidenced by how people still refer to it today - and will continue to do so for many more years. The leftists call it 'The Big Lie' and everybody else sees it as 'The Big Truth'. It's a Rorschach Test. Sarah Palin is a Rorschach Test. Some people see a butterfly whilst others see their worst nightmare. The leftists can't shake their heads hard enough to get her out of their minds - and quite frankly neither can those who advocate on her behalf. The lines are drawn. The battle is coming.
What is needed between now and 2012 are more 'Death Panelesque' definitions of Obama and his top priority to fundamentally change America. Americans need to reject him and eject him in 2012.
