Because -- imagine it if you can! -- it's even more brazenly false than Fox "news," I never look at The Drudge Report. So I wasn't aware that 83% of doctors hate Obamacare so much they might quit. Admittedly, other than assisting in operations, I'm no longer in practice; but I still hang around with a few docs and have never heard such an opinion expressed.* Turns out there's a reason: the headlined study was total bullshit.
[...]So, they have some opinions. But how did they get these survey results?
Impressive. Not only did the Drudge article falsely assert the study was by a "nonpartisan" group and misstate the data (it claimed 699 were surveyed), it ignored the fact that its pathetic return numbers invalidate the claim. (Had I received such a survey by fax, from an unknown organization, I'd have shit-canned it, too.) But never mind. Any peripheral lie is okay if it reinforces the central one.
Lies upon lies: for today's Republicans, it's the new truth.
Oh man, oh man, oh man, are we ever screwed...
* In fact, here's a letter to the editor that appeared in The Seattle Times just a day after I wrote the above. I agree with him. You'd think most reasonable people, even R politicians, would too. Come together to make it better. (Who am I kidding?)
