"You Look Very Spiffy In Your Coats:" Obama Passes Out White Lab Coats to Doctors at Speech So Everyone "Gets" They're Doctors

Obama's diagnosis of America? We're retarded.

A sea of 150 white-coated doctors, all enthusiastically supportive of the president and representing all 50 states, looked as if they were at a costume party as they posed in the Rose Garden before hearing Obama’s pitch for the Democratic overhaul bills moving through Congress.

The physicians, all invited guests, were told to bring their white lab coats to make sure that TV cameras captured the image.

But some docs apparently forgot, failing to meet the White House dress code by showing up in business suits or dresses.

So the White House rustled up white coats for them and handed them to the suited physicians who had taken seats in the sun-splashed lawn area.

What, no stethoscopes? No ear-lights? No... reflective-mirror-on-the-headband-thingee?

Why take chances like that? How am I to know these are doctors rather than mere phlebotomists or food-additive chemists?

Picture of the white-coat hand-out at the link, plus that super photo-op, looking absolutely ridiculous, of Obama speaking to props-slash-doctors who apparently think they need to wear a protective lab coat at a garden party. Because, you know, a lot of beaker-work between hors d'oeuvre courses.

Here's President Einstein going to the wrong podium at a speech and needing to be guided to the correct one. You know, as genii are wont to do.

Nothing funny about this president. Not a damn thing.

And if maybe there is? CNN will fact-check the shit out of it.
