Celebrity Doctor Mehmet Oz Announces Run for Senate as a Republican
Dr. Mehmet Oz, a Trump ally and TV personality who rose to fame as “Dr. Oz” on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” has announced he is launching a campaign for the US Senate as a Republican in Pennsylvania. Mehmet OZ is seen by many in the medical profession as an extremely controversial character, one who has made a living promoting pseudoscience “miracle” weight loss cures, questionable treatments for COVID-19, and discredited therapies - designed to turn gay people straight.
My goodness, you mean Dr. Oz is actually running for the senate? Well, I have to admit - Dr. Oz and Donald Trump’s politics are definitely a match made in Purgatory. And, what a surprise that a TV con artist, posing as a doctor, would choose to run as a Republican? Of course, should he be elected, he won’t be lonely, that’s for sure. He’ll be joining a stellar crowd of other GOP medical quacks, such as Paul Gosar, Rand Paul, and Ronnie Jackson - just to name a few.
All I can say is, “Toto, we’re definitely not in Kansas anymore.” And, speaking of not being in Kansas, as it turns out - Dr. Oz isn’t even in Pennsylvania. Hell, the guy lives in frigg’n New Jersey. I mean, who knew the “yellow brick road” ran through New Jersey and Pennsylvania? Of course, I’m sure Dr. Oz doesn’t see the fact that he doesn’t even live in Pennsylvania as a problem. After all, Mehmet Oz is running as a Republican, and Republicans believe rules - are made for “other people.”
Anyway, it should be quite interesting to see how the good folks in the House “Trailer Park Caucus” will react to having a “Turkish Muslim” running for senate as a Republican. Why, that ought to be almost enough to make folks like Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene consider going back on their meds again. That said, Dr. Oz had better keep in mind that nobody gets elected as a Republican unless they first set off to see the Wizard - the “Wonderful Wizard of Mar-a-Lago."
Now, I have no idea how this senatorial race will turn out, but let’s remember Dr. Oz is a famous face from TV, who endorses all the quack remedies Trump MAGAs love, and that appears to be all it takes to get you elected in certain states these days. As for me, well - if I ever needed medical care, you better believe I’d call on Dr. Pepper, Dr. Scholl’s, Dr. Demento, Doc Holiday, Dr. Zhivago, Dr. Strangelove, Dr. Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll, and maybe even Mr. Hyde - before I’d ever consider calling Dr. Oz.
