Grab a Lollipop on Your Way Out, Gupta

Sanjay Gupta has reportedly told Obama thanks, but no thanks–he’d prefer to stick with his TV gig for the time being than serve as Surgeon General. I guess it shows how closely I was paying attention that I didn’t realize he hadn’t been officially nominated for the post yet. That must mean one of two things happened: 1) Obama offered him the post in early January and he took until early March to make up his mind about whether to accept; or 2) Obama offered him the post in early January, he accepted, and then changed his mind now.

Either way, kind of lame, no?
