Frank Mahony: The Wrong Gupta?


Frank Mahony

The Wrong Gupta?

1/7/2009   Comment on This

Obama reports today that he has asked CNN medical correspondent, Dr Sanjay Gupta, to be the new Surgeon General of the Unites States. He thinks having a well known television doctor will be helpful in getting people’s attention.

I think he missed a golden opportunity – Possibly the biggest health issue facing America is obesity. I know – I’m a perfect example.

Sanjay Gupta is a neurosurgeon. How many people in the United States need neurosurgery at any given moment? (I probably need neurosurgery right now for writing this)

(He looks like Reality TV to me)

Since Obama has been stack’n the deck with folks from Chicago, why not choose the Chicago weight loss doctor - Gautam Gupta? Think about how many FAT people we have in the United States. If we could get American thinner – I bet tons of other health problems would be dramatically reduced: Heart Disease, Diabetes, etc…

Okay, maybe my judgment is a little clouded because has been an advertiser on WIND.

I guess I understand Obama's concept to pick a celebrity, but it’s just another example of how this is going to be a Reality Television Presidency (see my Joe the Plumber Moron Blog). We’ve already got a good base of suspected trouble makers which are the sorted and dissimilar characters you need for a good reality show.

For a great Reality Television Presidency, how about Dr Phil?

Maybe that wouldn’t work since Oprah is mad at Dr Phil but Obama and Oprah are best pals.

Hang on… Now we're getting somewhere - a Reality White House with: Obama, Oprah, Dr Phil, Gupta and Gupta. Maybe add Jerry Springer in there somewhere. Can Paris Hilton be Secretary of Fashion? Maybe Britney Spears or Lindsey Lohan as Secretary of Entertainment?

We just need a wackier version of the White House for them to live in. Can we spend just a little of that bail-out money on a big-ass White House Hot Tub?

I’d watch that. How many bailout billions can we recoup in commercials?
