In today's NY Times the latest scandal:http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/11/washington/11surgeon.html?hpDr. Carmona said he was ordered to mention President Bush three times on every page of his speeches. He also said he was asked to make speeches to support Republican political candidates and to attend political briefings.And administration officials even discouraged him from attending the Special Olympics because, he said, of that charitable organization's longtime ties to a “prominent family” that he refused to name....Dr. Carmona described being invited to testify at the government's nine-month racketeering trial of the tobacco industry that ended in 2005. He said top administration officials discouraged him from testifying while simultaneously telling the lead government lawyer in the case that he was not competent to testify. Dr. Carmona testified anyway.Politicizing the Special Olympics, subverting the government position in a trial, turning the Surgeon General into some political hack that has to mention the President three times per page in every speech; how anyone defends this administration is beyond my imagination.
