Roxana Mayer: I’m Not a Doctor But I Play One at Town Hall Meetings

Read about it here.

This is really pathetic. It's the secular progressive's version of phony faith healing.

(Update: Looks like the Houston Chronicle bought it hook-line-and-sinker, but then changed its story without confessing error. Interestingly enough, even after Ms. Mayer admits to not being a physician, the best the Houston Chronicle can do is say that it could not find her on the list of licensed physicians in Texas. This, of course, gives the impression that she may still be a physician, but just not one that can practice in Texas. Is it any wonder why so few people trust the media? Best line in this link: "A word of advice to budding political operatives: when you need two plants, try to pick people smarter than actual plants." And, now a word from Captain Kirk on the Mainstream Media......)

They have only three plays in their playbook: 1. Lying 2. ad hominem ("Do you mean play a doctor like you play a journalist?") and 3. tu quoque ("If I go to another one...then maybe I’ll play a plumber.")

Scott:

Remember, if one believes that "reason is the slave of the passions" (to quote David Hume), then politics is not by its nature a realm in which reason is the master of the passions.

This is why fallacies may be employed as weapons. Hence, there can be no "philosophical gourmets." For gourmets are assessors of taste and philosophers are lovers of wisdom. But sometimes wisdom is bitter and foolishness is sweet.

Roxanna left more openings to herself than a sieve as holes. I don't dare touch the one about playing a plumber, tempting though it is.
Her comment about it being easier to be against something than for it would qualify her for the annual liberal Simplicity Shuns Thought Award were it not that for the vast number of candidates crushing each other in the rush for that coveted honor.

They can all relax and go back to hanging on Keith Olberman's every word, Barack Obama has it in the bag.

Peace to everyone, maybe we will all meet on the same waiting line at whatever hospital keeps it's doors open.

Well, it's been demonstrated more often than not that latter-day philosophers are more lovers of ludicrousness, given their egregious epicurean debauchery, than actually lovers of wisdom -- unlike their venerable superiors who notably were.

As for false reports of right-wing mental-facility escapees deplorably disturbing the peace and making a mere mockery of these townhall meetings, quit fronting what is conspicuously a facade, given that most, if not, all such actors are merely liberal plants meant to fool the populace and promote the Obamacare Death Squad Crusade!
