Carmona Fires Another Arrow at BushCo

The former Surgeon General (and Pima County resident) is flipping yet another rock that shows the decaying filth that permeates federal government operations

"Anything that doesn't fit into the political appointees' ideological, theological or political agenda is ignored, marginalized or simply buried," Dr. Richard Carmona, who served as the nation's top doctor from 2002 until 2006, told a House of Representatives committee.

"The problem with this approach is that in public health, as in a democracy, there is nothing worse than ignoring science, or marginalizing the voice of science for reasons driven by changing political winds. The job of surgeon general is to be the doctor of the nation, not the doctor of a political party," Carmona added.


Time and time again, we have seen how politicized the entire machine has become under BushCo rule. It has become a mass of festering rot as the Good 'Ole Boys Club keep scratching each other on the back. Meanwhile, the rest of us are stuck reaping their unholy whirlwind.

Hopefully Carmona's testimony and the continued investigations involving the Attorney Purge in the Department of Justice will yield some concrete accountability for these crooks and liars. If they are allowed to leave office unscathed, it will be a travesty of democracy.
