Well, Dr. Oz’s dream of becoming Senator Dr. Oz (which is many, many, many people’s nightmare) is one step closer to coming true after his rival, Dave McCormick, conceded in Pennyslvania’s Republican primary for Senate. Politico says that Dr. Oz is now the presumptive GOP candidate for the open U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania and will face off against Democratic nominee John Fetterman in November. And since another TV quack’s political grift seems to be paying off, Dr. Phil’s slimy fingers are probably inching toward candidate registration forms for POTUS 2024.
For entirely too long, we were teased with the idea of Matthew McConaughey running for Governor of Texas, a reality that we have thankfully been spared of at this time. But this situation has been given the old Twilight Zone jerk-around switcheroo. Because instead of Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey running for a job he has zero experience in, the universe has instead given us failed Jeopardy! host and repeat Women’s World magazine cover model Dr. Oz who is running for a Senate seat in the state of Pennsylvania. This has the potential for a worse outcome than washing down a week-old scrapple sandwich with a room-temperature Wawa water ice.
