The Gupta Nomination

Last week's Friday Digest of the Patriot Post has an interesting analysis of the Gupta nomination for Surgeon General among other things:

"Predictably, one cabinet appointment that makes sense is coming under fire. Dr. Sanjay Gupta is a well respected and world-renowned neurosurgeon whose commentaries on health and well-being are broadcast far and wide in print and in the media. Yet his nomination is meeting resistance because liberals claim that Dr. Gupta has said some pretty nasty things (read: accurate things) about the concept of universal health care. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), head of the House Judiciary Committee, wants to quash Gupta's nomination because he says Gupta "lacks the requisite experience needed to oversee the federal agency that provides crucial health care assistance to some of the poorest and most underserved communities in America." That's Conyers' story and he's sticking to it."

Not unexpected since Dr. Gupta is one of the few not pulled from the Clinton cess-pool.
