Hey Obama waited until the last minute to pick a surgeon general, the government’s top doctor! SHIT SHIT SHIT who should he pick?? Uh uh uhhhhhh… quick, without even thinking: name a famous real-life teevee doctor! Him? Sure, fine, whatever, he can run America’s doctors.

This fine piece of Man here is Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the dude who pops up on CNN whenever Jack Cafferty has a question about his thyroid pills, or when America wants to know how long it will be until John McCain dies. This is Gupta’s job. He’s a great role model for his fellow Mexicans, and he’s richer than all of you people combined, ever.

Now he will be surgeon general, toiling the hours away for Barack Obama just like every other douchebag. He is expected to accept Obama’s offer within days. He’s obviously irreplaceable at CNN, so now Americans will have to figure out on their own that eating shitty food all day and literally never standing up, ever, will kill you.

  1. Obviously you pick Sanjay Gupta – Name another famous doctor besides Doogie or even your own doctor… everyone loves the Gupta. Also with Richardson gone we needed another one of those tan folks to replace him somewhere.

  2. [re=210500]CrunchyKnee[/re]: well, he does do neurosurgery, so maybe he sidelines in scrote lifts? He did one on himself first to test the procedure.

  3. Gupta is a televised troll. Every fucking time he comes around the tee vee fills with two hours of drug commercials advertising anything from back pain to limp dick to bone loss to child loss to restless legs to elephantiasis and right back to back pain again. Fuck him and the crappy tee vee dood he has ridden on for the last MILLION years.

  4. Sorry to break it to you guys, but this Sanjay is so loaded with indian casino wampum, he’ll never take this job seriously and just drink the firewater

  5. What a depressing choice. I’ll never forget the smear job he did on Moore’s “SICKO” and how dishonestly he defended it when Moore called him on it. In the name of “balance” he asserted several times that Moore had his facts wrong, but when Moore quoted his sources to him he pretended he had only argued that there were different studies and different interpretations. No, Goopy, you said he had lied, not that you were quoting some pharma company’s alternate interpretation. Only when Moore came on CNN and challenged your report did you start back-peddling.

    He has no intellectual honesty and he’ll kowtow to powerful interests if his paycheck depends on it. That’s about all I know about Goopy. Terrible, terrible choice.

  6. FYI people, he’s Indian/Pakistani, not Mexican. Get to know your brown people– his people run the 7/11, not hang out in front looking for work.

  7. Sheesh you steal the entire continent from ’em and now they want to be Surgeon General. Well there goes the “infected blanket” ruse.

  8. Dr Drew must have turned him down. Seriously, isn’t this mostly a PR position to phych up americans about brushing your teeth and the sit and reach?

  9. [re=210548]CrunchyKnee[/re]: I don’t think he would be too happy with the PUMAs in general, because he is a huge proponent of exercise, staying fit, and eating well, and, well…the samples we have seen…

  10. [re=210532]BigDupa[/re]: You do know that most Indians or Pakistanis don’t like being referred to as Indian/Pakistani, right? How would you feel if someone called you American/Canadian?

  11. [re=210559]dannygutters[/re]: Don’t forget about the dire warnings on smoking and anal hygiene and the importance of using a lube. The SG might just save your life, or possibly your TruckNutz.

  12. [re=210528]Udargo[/re]: Oh boo hoo, he failed some ideological purity test one time so he must be ostracised. Go cry about it on DailyKos or that Glenn Greenwald’s

  13. [re=210575]V572625694[/re]: Don’t forget Dr. Frazier Crane! Just wait till Sanjay does soft drink commercials. “You can trust me, by golly gosh–I’m a doctor!”

  14. [re=210606]wheelie[/re]: What about the one where there’s the guy and the girl, but they can’t be together, and then it goes on for four hours?

  15. [re=210615]jagorev[/re]: totally. This is the Racial/National Division Transcendance Admin! Now we need a Muslim in for Commerce to replace New Mexican Huggy Bear.

  16. Barry needs to add Fareed Zakaria to his administration. This will confirm that he is indeed a muslin for hiring all his brown-skinned brothers. (Plus Fareed is pretty hot; Sanjay so-so.)

  17. [re=210575]V572625694[/re]: Matt Smith the newest Dr. Who?
    Christopher Lloyd revamping his role as Doc Brown?
    Yadier Molina as Doctor Octopus?
    Doc from Nintendo’s Punch Out?
    Doctor Robotnik?

  18. [re=210577]jagorev[/re]: I’m sure Canadians would take great offense. I believe one parent is from India and the other from Pakistan thus my duel reference. He was born in Michigan so he knows about suffering. He left MI so he can’t be that dumb.

  19. [re=210565]Jim Newell[/re]: What are these “jokes” you speak of? According to that earlier article I am writing “snarks”. All this time I thought snarking was something you do between meals.

  20. [re=210644]BigDupa[/re]: Oh man, I can’t wait till Michelle Bachmann hears about the fact that a possible half-breed Muslin terrorist is going to be surgeon general. I want to taste her sweet despairing tears.

  21. [re=210581]Dramatist[/re]: Sanjay Gupta makes us all Curry Queens, especially dogless muslin vampire, Barry.

    Sorry – OUR dogless muslin vampire, Barry.

  22. Good news: not another Clinton retread. Bad news: further Oprahization of this administration. Worst news: Barry really is choosing this pop culture icon. Blerg.

    Two of his kids are named Sage and Sky. Maybe they’ll find love in Wasilla.

  23. This post was good enough to tear me away from that Puma post ever briefly, but still not good enough to tear me away from that Puma post entirely.

  24. [re=210666]ella[/re]: naming an experienced neurosurgeon who has credentials in neurosurgery, psychiatry, neurosciences, is adept at working with the media, and is experienced in combat surgery and the needs of combat medicine to be surgeon general for a nation involved in two wars is exactly like appointing Oprah to the Supreme Court, or something.

  25. [re=210674]jagorev[/re]:
    True, but I’m really not enamored with his lousy mathematical defense of For Profit Healthcare during the whole Sicko discussion which is why I consider him a hack.

  26. When I was in grad school in the 80’s, my Indian roomate used to get publications from his mother that were essentially arranged marriage catalogues. Nice pictures, with a brief description of particulars, e.g., caste, income, degrees, etc. Most of the ones I remember were women, but my guess is that this picture was Sanjay’s (from about the same time, judging by the designer jeans).

  27. I want the dude from Esquire/Oprah, the one who wears surgical scrubs with dark dress socks and shoes. Any man who can make scrubs look as starchy as a 3 piece suit has what it takes to manage the whole of America’s erectile dysfunction and saggy vajayjays.

  28. Keep your friends closer, enemies closer etc… this ties Gupta’s influence to Obama’s success, and keeps him from running for the nomination in 2012

  29. [re=210691]ManchuCandidate[/re]: I agree with you on this one. Gupta is the hack of all hacks. I’ve had plenty of professors who were self-loathing neo-fucktards. Gupta is no exception to this.

  30. jagorev: What the hell do you people have against American/Canadians anyway? To white for the Obrowna’s!?! It’s not like it’s hard enough to get a job but now some people are to white eh! For Shame!!! After all the brave American/Canadians have been through to protect our freedom.

  31. Every answer that Sanjay Gupta gives in his confirmation hearing is a key to his life experience, told in flashback and ending in a Bollywood number.

  32. i’m pretty sure over on the puma blog some largish menopausal hag was boasting about a “doctor” being amongt them. and they got that fox news cred & all. must’ve slipped past the team.

  33. When I first read this I thought they meant Sanjaya. Imagine my relief.

    Hey, I LIKE him. And he can depress MY tongue anytime he wants. Didn’t he and Andy Cooper and Jeff Corwin go prancing off around the world to save the planet or something? I thought they made a cute threesome. Maybe Anderson Cooper can be Obama’s Ambassador to Gayworld and Jeff can run the EPA. Then they can all share an apartment in Washington and have fab parties and their pick of all the hot Abercrombie models.

  34. I smoke like a chimney and drink like a fish.

    I got REALLY tired of doctors (male and female) zeroing in on my breasts and cervix every damn time I got a physical, instead of on the body parts that will most likely do me in, and haven’t seen a one of them in dog years.

    I do have health insurance. What good is it, if the doctors are such tools and fools?

  35. Steven Segal would have been an inspired choice. I once saw him heal himself from several gunshot wounds using only hot stones and candles.

  36. Personally, I would have preferred if he had chosen the hot scatter-brained daughter of a VIP, who is unsure of whether she got through med school on her own or through her parent’s pull. She will get teased and mocked in the first term (first two seasons of the show), only to learn to trust herself and become a great Surgeon General in the second term (seasons 3 through 5). That’s the kind of compelling Surgeon General I want.

  37. I showered after the puma blog (never look back!), and I think Gupta would be great! It’ll drive the wingnut-librulmedia conspirators crazy, too.

  38. Man, I was so hoping for Doctor Detroit (woo woo!). Gupta >>>>>>>> Weill. Not enough “greater than’s” in the world to express that. Dr. Scholls would be better than Dr Weill.

  39. Secretary of the Treasury: Suze Orman
    Attorney General: Joe Brown
    Director of NASA: Art Bell
    Chairman of NEA: Michael Israel
    Head of EPA: The Crying Indian

  40. [re=210716]WadISay[/re]: Pump your breaks, kid. That man’s a national treasure.

    I think Obama should have appointed the keyboard player in the lab coat from The Revolution.

  41. [re=210506]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Dr. Dre is in, Gupta is just going to be “Caretaker” until Detox is done…so some time during the second term.

  42. [re=210532]BigDupa[/re]: FYI, if you don’t know if someone is technically from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, etc., you can use the term “South Asian” or even “desi” if you want to be “down”. Also, shut up.

  43. The Borgen Project has informative statistics on addressing global poverty.

    $30 billion ends world hunger
    $550 billion is the US Defense budget

    This organization has the ability, resources, and policy-makers to suppress the threat of global poverty by enacting legislation here in the US, which is tied to the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals. Please support organizations such as The Borgen Project so that we may rid the world of poverty.

  44. [re=210666]ella[/re]: Actually, Sanjay used to work for Hillary, so it is another Clinton retread!

    Somewhere in Arkansas, the guy who writes Bill’s prescriptions for penicillin is thinking to himself, “I missed it by that much!”

  45. [re=210628]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: I second Dr. Jack Kevorkian. His approach may help some escape the Great Depression II in ways other than jumping out of buildings, or cutting their wrists like the French guy who lost all his money to Madoff. And the whole process could be green, like Soylent Green…

  46. [re=210544]FamilyLost[/re]: Agree! If we have to have a “TV doctor”, since those are the only type that us 200 million insurance-free ‘Merekin are actually familiar with, I’d totally pick Dr. Drew also. We know where he stands on the wacks-on/wacks-off question, his advice (as heard on the Loveline show) seems to be largely based in reality and experience, and he doesn’t seem to be a total BigPharma-whore.

  47. [re=210577]jagorev[/re]: I’ve always been confused on what to call the tech-support/Squishee-machine guys, but I heard somewhere that the ‘correct’ word is “Desi”, which I think is the Paki/Indi/Bengli/Lanki equivalent of “Scandinavian”….

  48. So, SG the SG? He had a bigger audience at CNN. Now, he’ll enter governmental obscurity (though I think he can order up a bitchin’ uniform that makes him look either like Cap’n Crunch or the doorman of an Upper East Side building). After he’s done, maybe Dr. Cox or Dr. Dorian might make the grade. Also, the first time I saw him on the air with Andy Cooper, I wanted them to totally start making out. Hmm…I still feel that way.

  49. [re=210528]Udargo[/re]: This makes me so sad. I think Sanjay is hot and liked to imagine what his bedside manor would be but now, Udargo who pays attention to shit, you have ruined it for me. I hope you’re proud of yourself.

  50. [re=210532]BigDupa[/re]: Besides working at the 7-11, his people also dominate in IT and heart surgery. And kick-ass at spelling bees.

  51. [re=210633]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: I’m more into Sanjay’s hotness than Fareed’s, but I would totally second putting Fareed and his brilliant brain into the State Department. He could completely remake our middle east and near east policy and, hell, south Asia while we’re at it, and bring pragmatism and realism to the job.

    After eight years, I’d a fed up up up with government by greed co-mingled with ideology. Lecture ended.

  52. I was in school with Fareed and he’s not that smart and he’s definitely NOT hot. He is smarter than any other political commentator on teevee but that aint saying much.

    Sanjay Gupta now is a very hot, very smart, very media savvy neurosurgeon. If this man can put together the brains of an Iraqi child while driving in a humvee as bombs explode around him he’s overqualified for the job of Surgeon General. After all, how hard is it to say “use condoms,” “don’t swallow'” and “if you do, use a good mouthwash?”

  53. [re=210655]Kev-O-Tron[/re]: You rat-bastard. I was so about to say George Clooney. Because, you know, if I suggested Dr. Ben Casey, that brooding hunk of Vince Edwards cheesy doctor, you kids would be very confused.

    That I can remember that but not where I put the glass of water I was drinking four minutes ago is proof that Bell’s Palsy is the first clear symptom of Alzheimers.

  54. [re=211070]smellyal8r[/re]: You really think AC/DC 365/24 would get his multi-culty B-list lovin’ on in public? Especially after Kathy Griffin threatened to “knock the dicks outta” his mouth on the TV-machine? No, he’s waiting until he & his honey get to their little love-nest on Fire Island…

    [re=210997]randomsausage[/re]: I’m sure President & Mrs. Half-breed Muslin also enjoy doing the terrorist ugly-bump in the Milk-and-Water-Embrace:–Milk-and-Water-Embrace
    (I like this one, since Mrs. Hopey has a nice rack)

    After the Big Inaugural Balls have been spent and the Obamas have their private sexytime (since historical studies have shown that First Ladies are NEVER more wet for their men than right after the Ball) it’s time to get freaky-deeky with the Pair-of-Tongs:–The-Pair-of-Tongs

  55. [re=210713]lawrenceofthedesert[/re]: Curry with the fringe on top made me laugh so hard I was about to make one of those spewing on the keyboard jokes that the wonkette overlords hate so much. Don’t look at me, Sara, it was lawrenceofthewhatever who did it.

  56. god you 13 yr old retarded boyz are so tiresome. Gupta first got famous for reporting from Katrina-swamped hospitals and that’s the shout-out here.

  57. [re=210616]bitchincamaro[/re]: NOT TRUE! There are 751 anagrams, including at least 200 that’ll sound dirty to a Wonkette-trained ear. I predict the Family Research Council’s favorite will be SATAN YAP JUG.

  58. I do think it’s nice that after the Bush administration we are finally going to get a brain surgeon in the administration (man, what a jump we’ve made from the Princeton wrestler who served as SecDef for 43). If SG had been in the Bush Admin, he’d have had nothing to operate on….thank yew, thank yew and g’nite.

  59. It would suck if he showed up at his confirmation ceremony with high explosives strapped to his middle.

    Also he accused Michael Moore of “fudging the facts.” So we know he’s into the fudge. What this country needs is a Surgeon General who is unafraid to level with the American people on the safest and sanest methods to have healthy buttsecks.

  60. [re=211171]Bearbloke[/re]: It would be sad if the confirmation process were to become heated, resulting in a Suspended Congress.

    As far as nookie on the first night in Da Houze, I personally would choose to bone Michelle on Nixon’s bowling lanes, holding out the possibility of perhaps using a spare pin or two as marital aids of some kind. Unfortunately, it won’t be my call.

  61. Paging Marcus Welby. You’re wanted in re-write. I wonder if Sanjay will grow one of them there gopher butt beards like C. Everett Koop. Chicks dig that shit. Say what you will, San-J was the bomb on American Idol.

  62. [re=211367]Bitter-Elitist[/re]: I was waiting for someone to mention Dr. Paul. He’s a real doctor. Favors ending the War on Drugs. Is skeptical of pharmas, and supports natural remedies. And as to healthy behavior warnings, he’s used to being ignored.

  63. Will I be able to get my health insurance to pay for yoga classes? Can he stand on his head? Can he stand on one leg and grab his other foot and pull it past his ear staying on balance? He’s not sitting on a chair in that photo. That’s a good sign. Maybe he’s a good choice.

  64. I concur with the majority opinion here, that it should have been Dr. House, especially since he endorsed hot girl-girl action on last night’s episode.
    Seriously, though: Is this quack for national health or what? I don’t care what he looks like or where his ass is from. Was he just going after Michael Moore because he, Gupta, is a doctor, and Moore isn’t?

  65. Dr. Hook? I loved that song about “sharing” the night together when I was a kid.

    Unfortunately it appears Dr. Hook is several people. What the hell, can’t hurt to have backups.

  66. Barack seems intent on assembling a pretty administration. Between his own fine self and his dishy Chief of Staff… Sanjay! Yeah, baby! All he’s got to do now is take on Evan Bayh, and they can pull America out of recession by selling erotic calendars.
