Disgraced doc David McKalip spoutin’ off again

Disgraced St. Petersburg doctor David McKalip, who was forced to resign from several prominent medical boards because of his emailing of a racist photo of President Barack Obama, continues to make the rounds, so to speak, in opposition to Obama’s health care initiatives. This time McKalip is quoted today by the New York Post in an article about the impact of the Baucus bill on Medicare:

“The only doctors left in Medicare will be those willing to ration care and practice cookbook medicine.”

Nice to see Dr. McKalip has tempered his comments since we heard from his last. Still, I am amazed that any credible news source is quoting someone who sent out an email depicting the President as a witch doctor.
