Oh shucks Fauci, didn't you learn that honesty trumps (oops...) politics?

Well I watched 30sec. Agree with him on Iraq anyway. Funny we were just listening to Natalie Maines singing “Mother”. I explained to my daughter how she kinda lost her country music career over one critical statement on the way. “Patriots “ and talk radio right wingers were all in on that war.

I thought she lost her career b/c how she came across and multiple critical statements. I would agree with the second part of that statement.

Does anyone else see Dr Fauci as the type of colleague that doesn't pull as much weight in the department b/c they are always working on a side project? And they seem pretty smart but seem to take the same material as you but wind up with a different conclusion. I don't personally know him (surprise), but he superficially strikes me as this "type".

Hasn’t he been the head of the department for 30 years or more?

Probably. I had heard that he hadn't had significant patient care for 30 years, so that fits! lol

Are you saying that supports my assessment, or not? (I am sincerely asking b/c it could go either way- I have seen many department heads who would fit my description). Personal story: I had to be put asleep emergently during residency. The guy I would have picked was taking care of me. Yay. In steps the department head, takes over and FUBAR'd the situation worse than a junior resident. He was neither smooth nor in. He almost snapped defeat from the jaws of victory.

I don't want any division head, highly published academic, nor chairman taking care of me or my family. I want the confident 5-8 year doc who is up to date on the literature, slick, and battle tested.

Do you think concocting an antibiotic treatment plan for endocarditis translates to running the national pandemic response? I don’t see how patient care has any role in his job.
