A Florida doctor has resigned amid controversy over an email he sent to several people that contained the following picture:
David McKalip claimed regret for sending the email and called his actions “a lapse in judgment.” Obviously, his intention was to attack Obama’s health-care-reform push by comparing the President to a witch doctor. The criticism of the picture, however, is that it is somehow racist.
Supposed racist implications aside, to assert that Obama’s health care ideas are voodoo-medicine in that, quite frankly, they won’t work, is certainly important. The President continues to claim that his type of health-care overhaul will add more people to the system while not costing more money. That’s not just voodoo medicine, it’s voodoo economics.
