I'm with Reagan

It's frivolous, but I can't resist linking to this first-person piece about mixing politics with medicine. Although I've occasionally enjoyed joking with nurses about things like the Fox News howling in the background in the hellish radiology waiting room, I'd just as soon not know how most of these folks feel about the issues of the day (except, possibly, in terms of health care). 

Remember when Ronald Reagan was shot in 1981? He quipped to the doctor who was going to operate on him, "I hope you're a Republican." The doctor replied, "Today, Mr. President, we're all Republicans." That would have been less convincing from someone wearing a Carter-Mondale pin.
