He's brown, Jim.

Say you are a maverick outside the bonds of party insiders

Call them lamestream media and pick an infomercial guru to be a campaign advisor.

You got brand baby and these days it's all you really need.

Damn that came out more persuasive than I intended it to.

/I am sure Democrats need to mine the value of being loud and dumb in an attention economy.

Mehmet? Sounds a little 9/11 to be running as a Republican.
 
2022-01-27 7:16:47 PM  
No more bullshiat TV celebs in politics, please and thank you.
 
2022-01-27 7:20:10 PM  
Yeah, I'm sure the fact that he has any association with Oprah won't do him any favors with the GQP base.
 
2022-01-27 7:20:35 PM  
Gee, some rich Jersey tv asshole with a place outside Philly doesn't connect with your average pennsylvanian? My God!

How dare you!  He's a doctor!
 
2022-01-27 7:21:28 PM  
He's a quack.
 
2022-01-27 7:22:00 PM  
Does he actually have a platform, other than vague medical quackery/covid denial?

Eh, stand him next to Oprah and he looks white enough.
 
2022-01-27 7:25:42 PM  
Thanks Obama Oprah.  When can we expect Dr Phil to become a GOP candidate, he would really get conservative panties wet.
 
2022-01-27 7:27:09 PM  
I knew he'd have a hard time in PA.

I would pay to watch a Republican debate between Dr. Phil and TFG

Just call him Meh for short.
 
2022-01-27 7:29:52 PM  
Run as an independent and show those party hacks that you know the people better than them! Come on Oz! You can do it!
 
2022-01-27 7:30:20 PM  
He doesn't have the personal touch, does he?

Maybe he'd win a few votes if some lonely housewife got on stage with him and he groped her up good while pretending to give body "advice" like he normally does on his show. Not from me though.

If I were his constituent, I would *never* vote for a doctor who clearly advertises products with no medicinal value, because money. He might not have broke his oath of do no harm, but he's clearly in it for the money, not the people. And it shows.
 
2022-01-27 7:30:36 PM  
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain of lies.

Nah, it's cool, he's got money.

Tailspin Tommy: Oprah's going to hell for this sh#t.


Oprah's been promoting snake oil in order to sell TV shows and books for years.  But like 90's-era GOP political consultants, she's finally let one of her monsters loose and can't get it back under control.
 
2022-01-27 7:36:10 PM  
All he has to do is put on a stethoscope around his neck with a blue shirt and it's guaranteed.
 
2022-01-27 7:37:43 PM  
Its funny how suddenly its Mehmet this and Mehmet that.
 
2022-01-27 7:46:02 PM  
He's going to need to soak that burn in some apple cider vinegar. Or maybe try drinking some apple cider vinegar and campaigning harder. I was never really clear how to use it.
 
2022-01-27 7:46:34 PM  
I recommend everyone listen to the Behi f the Bastards podcast on him:
Part One: Dr. Oz: Why 'America's Doctor' Is A Bastard

He needs to take a lesson from "Ted" Cruz, "Bobby" Jindal, "Nikki" Haley, etc.

Mike Oz, when shouted, does sound like a derpy rallying cry.

If he's smart he will drop out now. Take the hint, the voters aren't interested. He won't, so we can watch him crash and burn. Better now than later.
 
2022-01-27 7:59:43 PM  
Dr. Oz is consistently speaking directly with voters and will continue to travel across the commonwealth to share his solutions to problems we are facing as a country."

I'll take a swing at this.

1. god
2. guns
3. cut taxes
4. call everyone communists and power hungry
 
2022-01-27 7:59:46 PM  
The early ads are calling him a "Hollywood liberal". Going to be a shiatshow.
 
2022-01-27 8:01:16 PM  
He was "taken aback" and "expected him to do better because of the celebrity," a Trump-world adviser said.

Ha! Yer fired!

It worked for TFG.
 
2022-01-27 8:03:30 PM  
And despite going to meet with state committee people and engaging them, what they've learned about him over the last couple weeks has been he did ads for Obamacare.

He's a goner. No one can survive that test.
 
2022-01-27 8:03:34 PM  
He needs a campaign slogan that will appeal to the GQP. Maybe: "Mehmet Oz. A different kind of traitor."

Contrary position: A multi-way Republican primary that's as long, bloody, and as expensive as possible will drain their fundraising and make it harder for them in the fall.

Ex.: Here in Illinois, Bruce Rauner spent a gazillion of his own money running for governor, and bankrupted everyone else in the party.

"He basically said he's a conservator for a relative over there and if he gave it up, he couldn't really help that relative," Stewart said. "I think he handled himself really well. He's a pro. He's very good at speaking."

Did you follow up on this "relative?" Or did you take his word for it? Thought so.

Well, at least he passed the public speaking class.

I love how they pull that out like it's some sort of accomplishment.  Like, you wouldn't expect someone groomed by Oprah and with a 20-year career on television to....be good at speaking?

I'm not sure how many states let you run without including both a first and a last name, but probably not many.

One out a hundred people voted for him? Perhaps he should run for Doctor "Who?"

And a white coat. All the reliable TV docs have the white coat.
