The most over-rated doctor in America isn’t the dumb guy from “The Bachelor” who is on the syndicated show “The Doctors.” Nope.
It’s Dr. Mehmet Oz, the guy who–like most modern professional psychobabblers–was created by Oprah. Last night was the first time I actually saw the guy, a son of Turkish Muslim immigrants, in something other than scrubs. It’s creepy to always see him pretentiously dressed in blue scrubs, as if he’s rushing off to some emergency surgery to save America. PUH-LEEZE. As we all know, he wears them to remind us he’s a doctor . . . in case we forgot.
Well, I forgot, last night, when I heard this phony on The Late Show with David Letterman, when he uttered this quote:
America is experiencing a sexual famine.
Uh, really? Go to the streets of Detroit or any urban or suburban American setting, and I guarantee you’ll see enough multiple babymamas to prove that America is NOT experiencing a sexual famine.
Or turn on TV and radio and go to the movies, where sex is constantly on display. Or look at pop culture, where you have to make a porn video–no, make that several porn videos–to make a name and where young singers, like Miley Cyrus, gyrate on stripper poles to demonstrate a “transition” into womanhood.
Sorry, Dr. Oz, but America–where the average woman now has eight sexual partners in a lifetime and growing–is not experience a sexual famine. It’s experiencing a sexual glut.
We needed a “doctor” to tell us this inane advice? Hilarious.
I give his dumb show a season or two, and that’s it. Yes, even if HOprah is producing it. But if it succeeds, it’ll tell me something I already know: America is also experiencing a glut of morons and dummies.
Doctor Oz’s rise to fame is yet more evidence of it. He may have a medical degree, but his advice is poison.
As reader Jeanne Smith notes, America is experiencing a moral and spiritual famine. And that’s why psycho-babblers like Dr. Oz are prospering.
