36. The right wingers are spreading it and amplifying it, but the people
we need to worry about are in the center. If Rush Limbaugh had come out with this first, it wouldn't have gotten any traction. But the apparent source is a former lieutenant governor presented as an expert on health care issues. She looks respectable, speaks calmly and is treated with respect. She has articles in publications such as the Wall Street Journal and the New Republic*. Many people who read those publications have no idea she also writes for the New York Post. "Adjunct Fellow at the Hudson Institute." That sounds as impressive as hell if you don't know what the Hudson Institute is.



* The New Republic got a prize for her article on Clinton's Health Plan. Later editors repudiated the article as trash. It sounded good at the time though, and did its damage.
