Where tweets are 'translated' into unvarnished 'truth'. Satire and commentary, without apology, on today's right wing twitterverse.

As long as it isn't a same sex UNION......
Unions, those of the worker kind not marriage. Unions were on the mind of Sarah "the quitter on twitter" Palin, which is impressive given her inability to retain any information for any length of time.....we digress. Anyway, Palin today tweeted about Obamacare and how, apparently, it's bad for Unions; we she implied it......rather poorly. Now, of course, this has been the refrain of the republican party since Obamacare became the law of the land and, not content with just 1 or 2 attempts to repeal it, the republicans have tried a whopping 37 times to get rid of it. Thing is, Obamacare is not the bogeyman it's made out to be, no.......what it is, however, is a much needed start to making health care available to most, if not all, Americans. This cannot be allowed......so say the republicans and right-wingers, after all, if all people get health care, there'll be more of the 'wrong' people in the U.S. ....... and republicans/right wingers/neo-cons can't have that. What makes the tweet by Palin all the more suspect is the notion that she, a republican also ran, is in any way supportive of Unions. She's a fan of Scott Walker for Christ's sake! Truth be told, if Obamacare is causing layoffs, it's not because of the cost, it's because of greed. Greed on the part of businesses who see money as their one true God. It's a sickness unto itself and having Palin champion Unions, in a cynically obvious attempt at pandering, makes it all the more offensive.
