(Newser Summary) Fox News ripped into President Obama's choice for surgeon general yesterday for being too fat for the job. "Enough fat for my next guest to say 'fat chance' for Dr. Regina Benjamin to even be considered," said host Neil Cavuto. The guest? Not a public health expert or even a politician, but a Denver gym owner wearing a "No Chubbies" T-shirt, notes Talking Points Memo.

"Would you want the head of the Fed Reserve to be a guy in a cardboard box?" asked gym rat Michael Karolchyk, who berates the "obese" Benjamin for "being lazy and making poor food choices." Talking Points Memo notes that Cauto's gym, notorious for cage dancers and a co-ed sauna, was raided by the IRS and shut down earlier this year. The blog also notes: "I don't remember C. Everett Koop being svelte. But then he wasn't black or a woman."

Then by negative inference, the writer must love slim Pres Obama.

Candidates are disqualified by their chosen gym? Coed saunas, Sodom and Gomorrah!

Heredity could be a factor here. She doesn't look like a slob or anything!

My company sponsors this "healthy living screening" program. We're invited to have free health-screenings, etc. At the last meeting, the company that does these screenings sent out their rep', - a real fat guy! On top of that, cokes and Krispy Kreme's were served as snacks! I laughed so hard my- a-hole hurt!

I remember Koop being overweight AND looking like a 19th century maritime sailor.

This debate isn't over until the fat lady sings, or they start playing the polka hit " She's too fat for me" whichever comes first.

Geez...you'd think she had red hair and freckles or something.

Maybe they'll write a no fat doctors clause into the healthcare reform. No smoking nurses, either. Let's not even talk about the pharmacists...

How do you know the gym owner is right wing?

Also, did Fox say she was too fat or did the gym owner? Obviously Cavuto brought it up, but was it just one of those stories they put out for the absurdity of it or was Cavuto agreeing with the guy? I notice Fox does that, it can be very Current Affairish if you will.

Funny thing about this is that Cavuto often pokes fun at himself for eating too much, being overweight, etc. He seems to have no problem making himself a target on this subject. I have a hard time seeing him calling someone else out for the same problem, but I didn't see it....

There's a big difference between being overweight and obese. Dr. Benjamin looks fairly normal to me. Besides, as long as her "numbers" are all in a normal range, weight is a subjective thing.

She's not fat.

She's "voluptuous."

Guys with beards and NO mustache have deep rooted Fruedian issues. Or a mama that made them pick old cereal out of their mustache.

Unless Fox news has had an epihpany, it's pretty clear what right wing I was speaking of:

Fox News
ripped into President Obama's choice for surgeon general yesterday for being too fat for the job. "Enough fat for my next guest to say 'fat chance' for Dr. Regina Benjamin to even be considered," said host Neil Cavuto. The guest? Not a public health expert or even a politician, but a Denver gym owner wearing a "No Chubbies" T-shirt, notes Talking Points Memo.

I saw this and it came off as more of a put-on than anything else. Cavuto definitely poked fun at himself and the guest was not meant to be taken seriously. At least I didn't think so. I think it was a more of tongue in cheek jab at the competition, and what kind of stories they run on the "right wing" than anything else. Geithner made it in as the chief tax enforcement officer, so apparently anything goes. It's a new age we're living in.

Frank Zappa had a great time with Dr. Koop:

Promiscuous


"Here we go!

The Surgeon General, Doctor Koop
S'posed to give you all the poop
But when he's with P.M.R.C.
The poop he's scoopin'
Amazes me

C-Span showed him, all dressed up
In his phoney Doctor God get-up
He looked in the camera and fixed his specs
'N gave a fascinating lecture
'Bout anal sex
ANAL SEX
ANAL SEX
ANAL SEX
ANAL SEX

He says it is not good for us
We just can't be promiscuous
He's just a doctor - he should know
It's the work of the Devil, so
Girls, don't blow!
DON'T BLOW
DON'T BLOW

Don't blow Jimmy, don't blow Bobby
Get yourself another hobby
(If Jesus practiced medicine
I'm sure he'd do it
Just like him)

Is Doctor Koop a man to trust?
It seems at least that Reagan must
(And Ron's a trusting sort of guy -
He trusts Ed Meese
I wonder why?)
I WONDER WHY
WONDER WHY

The A.M.A. has just got caught
For doin' stuff they shouldn't ought
All they do is lie and lie
Where's Doctor Koop?
He's standin' by

Surgeon General? What's the deal?
Is your epidemic real?
Are we leaving something out?
Something we can't talk about?
A little green monkey over there
Kills a million people?
That's not fair!
Did it really go that way?
Did you ask the C.I.A.?
Would they take you serious,
Or have THEY been
Promiscuous
Have THEY been Promiscuous
Have THEY been Promiscuous
Have THEY been Promiscuous"
