  • Quote Unquote: People Dying in Their Apartments

    Mitt Romney on the lack of a need for Obamacare in the U.S...

    .

    "We don't have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don't have insurance."

    .

    Actually they do. But only tens of thousands of people each year.

    Though, in all fairness to Romney, by "we" he probably meant people who attend his country club. In that sense, he is correct.

  • Today in Fox News Medicine

    Fox NewsIf I'm reading the campaign spin correctly, Mitt Romney just needs to avoid publicly urinating on moderator Jim Lehrer, refrain from reciting The Klansman's Oath using only fart noises, and keep himself from performing a forced abortion on a member of the Denver audience in order to exceed expectations and win tonight's debate with Barack Obama. At which point, he will have transformed the race and come one step closer to repealing and replacing Obamacare.

    On this note, today's episode of Fox and Friends offered a look at how healthcare will work in the post-Obamacare utopia: All psychiatric diagnoses will be performed by Dr. Keith Ablow, who was last seen writing mash notes to Newt Gingrich's penis.

    Today's psychiatric diagnosis concerns a viewer who asks if he is nuts for having "amassed years of food, fuel, generators, outdoor survival gear & an enormous cache of defensive ordinance." The verdict…

  • Rush Limbaugh Blames Feminists For His Tiny Penis

    It's not often that I feel sympathy for our nation's too-big-to-fail radio host, but, as Anton Chekhov wrote,  "Every happy man should have some one with a little hammer at his door to knock and remind him that there are unhappy people and that, however happy he may be, life will sooner or later show its claws, and some misfortune will befall him — illness, poverty, loss…"

    So no matter how much I may revile the conservative broadcaster, I think I should take this moment to express our condolences to Rush, lest we be the happy men who neither see nor hear others in their time of illness and misfortune…

    "I think it's feminism. If it's tied to the last 50 years — the average size of [a male's] member is 10 percent smaller than 50 years [ago] — it has to be the feminazis, the chickification and everything else. Give them time and they'll blame Bush. But air pollution versus feminazis? Ha!"

    Limbaugh was referring to an Italian study which purported to show a 10% decline in penis size over a 50 year period and laid the blame on weight gain around the waist, alcohol consumption, smoking, stress and environmental pollutants. None of which are problems for Limbaugh, of course. In his case, it was definitely the Teeny Weenie committee of the National Organization for Women that's causing shrinkage.

    But no matter who or what is ultimately responsible, let's keep Rush in our thoughts as he goes through this difficult time.
