Pharmacy Friday Follow-up

I received this email today and thought it was very timely considering last fridays edition of Pharmacy Friday. Let me know what you think...
**I didn't write this, not sure who did**

The American Medical Association has weighed in on the
new health care plan being developed by the current Congress.

The Allergists voted to scratch it, but the Dermatologists
advised not to make any rash moves.

The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gu t feeling about it,
but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot
of nerve.

The Obstetricians felt they were all laboring under a

Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.
Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the
Pediatricians said, "Oh, grow up!"

The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness,
while the Radiologists could see right through it.

Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole
thing. The Internists thought it was a bitter pill to
swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, "This puts a
whole new face on the matter."

The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the
Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.
The Anesthesiologists thought the idea was a gas, and
the Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire
decision up to the assholes in Washington.
