Surgeon General

Team Obama has announced* Dr. Sanjay Gupta as their choice for Surgeon General. However, it is unclear whether or not Congress will seat Dr. Gupta, pending an investigation into whether or not the CNN correspondent used his position as a real person to exert undue influence on Obama in choosing him over other popular television Doctors such as Star Trek's Dr. McCoy, Doogie Houser, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Marcus Welby, M.D., and of course the lovable Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable. As for the as-yet-unfilled (and nonexistant) post of Musician General, behind-the-scenes sources say the contest between the suburban candidate, Dr. Hook, and the urban choice, Dr. Dre, remains contentious.

(*He's actually just been "approached" according to "inside sources.")
