Pre-Existing Condition?

Rick Perlstein in the WaPo:

The tree of crazy is an ever-present aspect of America's flora. Only now,
it's being watered by misguided he-said-she-said reporting and taking over the
forest. Latest word is that the enlightened and mild provision in the draft
legislation to help elderly people who want living wills -- the one hysterics
turned into the "death panel" canard -- is losing favor,
according to the Wall Street Journal, because of "complaints over the provision."

Good thing our leaders weren't so cowardly
in 1964, or we would never have passed a civil rights bill -- because of
complaints over the provisions in it that would enslave whites.
