“The party’s over, you better call it a day, they’ve burst your pretty balloon and taken the moon away.” — Dinah Washington
Poor Mehmet Oz. All those houses, all that money, but he needs more. And guess what? His Republican constituents don’t care. Isn’t that cold? We could have told you Mehmet, you’re dealing with monsters. We know, we’ve been fighting them for years.
But some people have to learn for themselves, the hard way. Take a look at the heart wrenching pleas that Mehmet is sending out to Republicans everywhere and they are turning their backs. They make Ebenezer Scrooge look like Mother Theresa.
Oz “may have to call it quits.” Oh, nooooooooooooooooo, Mr. Bill!
He’s “at the end of his rope” and he “can’t go on.”
Who would have thought the Republicans could be such heartless bastards?
And if you think that’s heart wrenching, Mehmet, this will rip all of your guts out and throw them on the floor. Good thing you’re a surgeon, because you may need somebody to put you back together again, if this newest 538 poll is even close to being right.
The one shred of reality amongst all this kvetching over donations is that Oz probably is ready to throw in the towel. That’s very likely. This is not emphatically not what he signed up for, nor what his training or life experience as a TV personality and snake oil salesman has prepared him for.
Donald Trump told him it would be a breeze. I can hear his nasal Neanderthal tones now, “Relax, Mem, you’ve been on TV for longer than I have. Are you kidding? Shoo in. Not to worry. Even Melania likes you. Oh, and remember, you win, I get a cut. You lose, I get a bigger cut for wasting my time. But not to worry, you’ll win.”
But Oz has cause to worry, no matter how many times Trump tells him not to. The poll you saw above is brand spanking new, posted at around 5:15 p.m. PDT.
We’ll see what we shall see. But maybe Oz should save himself the embarrassment and throw in the towel.
