Yee fuckin’ haw. Zuzu e-mailed me earlier with the news that Sanjay Gupta has withdrawn himself from consideration for the Surgeon General gig. Both she and Fillyjonk have written about what a fat-hating tool he is, if you’re unclear on why this is a good thing.
Of course, as Liss points out, it’s highly unlikely that whoever does end up as Surgeon General will be one whit less Chicken Littleish about THE OBESITY CRISIS BOOGA BOOGA BOOGA. But I’ll drink a wee tiny glass of champagne for this one anyway.
