Foxes and Dingbats and Wizbangs. Oh, My!

On MPR this morning, they were talking about Obama's Health Care speech in Green Bay yesterday. This reminded me....

The boys and I happened to be eating at a convenience store/gas station/diner at the time. The TVs there had the speech on through Fox News. During the last fifteen or twenty minutes, Obama was taking questions from the audience. Fox News talked over some of that portion with an amazing dingbat.

One of the stats that Obama mentioned several times in the speech is that there are 46 million Americans without health insurance (and many more for whom the cost will soon be too great). The dingbat that Fox News had on said approximately:

What nobody's talking about is: if we insure these 46 million other people and bring them into the health care system, are we going to have enough doctors and nurses and nurse practitioners to care for them? I mean, it already takes weeks for most of us with health insurance to get in to see the doctor. If there are 46 million other people fighting for those appointments, how long will take us then?

Seriously? You've got to be kidding me. What the F@#% sort of argument is that? And, they call Obama an elitist?

The wizbang host from Fox News was, of course, nodding along and eating this up. Arrgghhhh.
