Halting But Honest, Fetterman Sums Up Dr. Oz With A Single Phrase

Halting But Honest, Fetterman Sums Up Dr. Oz With A Single Phrase

John Fetterman, left, and Mehmet Oz on debate stage

Pennsylvania Senate candidates John Fetterman and Mehmet Oz faced off in their one and only debate Tuesday night. After a rough start where Fetterman’s lack of experience in being a fast-talking fraud doctor was in contrast to his fast-talking hack doctor opponent, he began righting the ship. In a nice exchange where Mehmet Oz side-stepped a question about how most doctors consider Dr. Oz’s many remedies to be ethically dubious at best, Fetterman dropped a very nice reminder for the viewers at home.

”It’s the Oz rule. If he’s on tv, he’s lying.”

When asked about abortion rights, Oz literally said that he wanted the choice concerning abortion and women’s health to be made between “women, doctors, and local political leaders.” Read that back to yourself. Then watch it.

A reminder of which person had courage tonight and which guy was is a snake oil salesman.

Here’s a good summation of the night.

And another reminder.

And something to keep in mind as you look about the inter webs for news.

They didn’t award women full citizenship, and they failed to deal in any way with the sin of slavery.

How Fox Props Up The House Republicans' Impeachment Farce

Sean Hannity

Fox News propagandists are still eagerly shoveling Rep. James Comer’s (R-KY) slop to their viewers, nearly one year into the House Oversight Committee chair’s shambolic campaign to damage President Joe Biden’s political standing by focusing on his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
