Dr. Graves: My dear Doctors it is indeed a pleasure to welcome you here at the beginning of your practice.  This letter states that in this group that there are three of you who are not overly bright but were graduated because had been in the senior class, too many years. Your identity I will keep secret and will disclose to no one on one condition, that you try hard and forever devote your lives to the glorious cause of duty and Humanity!

Moe, Larry & Curley:
We Will!

The Three Stooges Men in Black 1934

One of the oldest jokes in the book goes like this:

What do you call the person who finishes last in his class in medical school?


That’s still true but if you are a dunce of a doctor today is a tough time for you.  With malpractice laws and insurance these days and the plethora of media not to mention a litigious society a doctor who is prone to making mistakes would seem to have dim prospects..

But if you are not inclined toward duty and humanity Robert Stacy McCain and Jeff Quinton report there IS an option for you:  Late Term Abortionist in Maryland!

Why, because if you accidentally kill somebody nobody will notice:

Dr. LeRoy Carhart is one of America’s most notorious abortionists. He specializes in late-term abortion and, unless you actually know what’s involved in it, you cannot possibly imagine what a gruesome atrocity the bland phrase “late-term abortion” describes. Now, according to a report by Operation Rescue, a 29-year-old woman has died after Carhart performed such an atrocity at a Maryland clinic:

Now you would think that a woman dead by one of the most notorious doctors in the country might be newsworthy.  Stacy McCain certainly thought so:

Carhart is a celebrity of the pro-abortion movement. Described as “one of the few doctors in the U.S. to openly perform late-term abortions,” Carhart was an associate of Dr. George Tiller, who was assassinated in 2009. Michael Martelli of the Maryland Coalition for Life notes that Carhart “was hailed as a ‘hero’ in the film ‘After Tiller’ at the recent Sundance Film Festival.” Now that a 29-year-old woman has reportedly died as a result of Carhart’s butchery, however, it seems that no major news organization considers him newsworthy.

Neither the Washington Post nor the Baltimore Sun has yet reported on this woman’s death in Maryland, despite the fact that there was an 11 a.m. press conference today in front of the Germantown clinic. The story is also being ignored by the Associated Press, USA Today, the New York Times, and television news networks. As of 1:30 p.m. Friday, the largest organizations reporting the story were WorldNetDaily and LifeNews.com.

However the rest of the media would seem to disagree.  That’s should be reassuring to every quack and slacker in the country.  Even better if anyone in the media does bother to catch up and do the story, it will be Saturday in the metro section on the day of the biggest blizzard in 30 years. McCain again:

OK, it’s only a 350-word item in the Metro section, but it’s something. Still nothing from the Baltimore Sun, the New York Times, USA Today or the Associated Press, but at least now one major news organization has grudgingly acknowledged that a 29-year-old woman has died after being treated at the clinic where “Doctor Death” was willing to perform an abortion in the 33rd week of pregnancy.

Yes, I said the 33rd week – eight months pregnant — which is actually legal in Maryland.

So if YOU are at the bottom of your medical class and worried that you can’t find any kind of practice, Maryland wants YOU to perform late-term abortions. And if you screw up, don’t worry, just think. if the MSM will bend over backwards to avoid reporting on the death of a 29-year-old woman from a botched abortion by a notorious physician, you should have no trouble covering up almost any mistake or injury you inflict on any woman.

One caveat, Doctors who have decided to devote their lives to the glorious cause of Duty & Humanity need not apply.

I’m a long time fan and with one exception this preview made me laugh

Of course the sound effects automatically bring a smile to the face. I liked the iPhone joke and stooges fans will recognize an awful lot of gags from this preview

My worry isn’t so much the humor, the Stooges brand of humor is universal and it will take an awful lot of effort to screw it up. My concern is this: There are lines that the boys didn’t cross, with nearly half a century invested in the stooges lets hope the new version respects those lines.

John Meacham began with a blunt lie stating that Sarah Palin’s speech was “All about her” proving not only that he didn’t read or watch her statement but displaying the accuracy and wisdom that forced him to sell Newsweek for less than the price of a Whopper Jr. at Burger King.

After 4 minutes of this I finally decided that life is too short to waste it with this nonsense.

Instead I’ve put on the last CD of the Complete Three Stooges Collection that my youngest got for Christmas.

That’s how far Morning Joe has fallen into Palin Derangement Syndrome. The Joe Besser episodes of the Three Stooges from 54 years ago is a more sensible use of my time.

Like the Anchoress said:

Where Sarah Palin is concerned, the mainstream press and the political pundit class are like 14 year olds obsessing over the social order of the cafeteria, and especially that stupid new cootie girl, ewwww.

They are the spiteful, malevolent and immature teenagers in “Carrie,” armed with pig-blood and just looking for any opportunity to pour it.

They are repulsive in their clique; one wants to take them by their shoulders and shake them and say “grow up! GROW UP!”

The question is, will I turn it back on Monday Morning?

…and the Three Stooges on WSBK.

Moe Larry & Curley win every time, at least the stooges unlike Friedman are only pretending to be fools.

Update: Anna Marie Cox compares Code Pink to the tea parties with a straight face on Reliable Sources, David “I’m the only true conservative” Frum and Craig Crawford of don’t call her on it and of course Howie Kurtz doesn’t either.

It takes a certain amount of ignorance and dishonesty to make this comparision, it is this combination of errors that have caused CNN’s audience…
…and of course they are going to play up the NYT Pope stuff, I’m torn between the desire to just listen to my Tom Bakers and to see if he challenges the Times at all (HA).

Update 2: Well the panel will be the reporter from the times and Sally Quinn! Absolutely no chance of anything truthful here, time for Tom Baker. Enjoy last place CNN.

Morning Joe was dealing with the Onion today so in honor of that and Harry Reid’s success to impose Cloture it’s worthwhile to link to this highly relevant Onion story from 1997:

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND—World Health Organization officials expressed disappointment Monday at the group’s finding that, despite the enormous efforts of doctors, rescue workers and other medical professionals worldwide, the global death rate remains constant at 100 percent.

Death, a metabolic affliction causing total shutdown of all life functions, has long been considered humanity’s number one health concern. Responsible for 100 percent of all recorded fatalities worldwide, the condition has no cure.

I love the Nader “quote”:

“Why should we continue to spend billions of dollars a year on a health care industry whose sole purpose is to prevent death, only to find, once again, that death awaits us all?” Nader said in an impassioned address to several suburban Californians. “That’s called a zero percent return on our investment, and that’s not fair. Its time the paying customer stood up to the HMOs and to the so-called ‘medical health professionals’ and said: ‘Enough is enough. I’m paying through the nose here, and I don’t want to die.'”

Yeah it’s funny and the Onion as always is worth a laugh but the bottom line is still what the article says. Everyone dies. That includes me and you.

Boy, back to back post on death, I know I’m in a bit of a mood today but two posts in a row on death? Bad sign, but as Curley Howard once said: “The Morbid the merrier”

I guess the “free cigarettes” line would get this a R rating today.
