"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

The Surgeon General's position is not a spot that is typically filled by a young doctor.

Instead, the choice is usually made predicated on a career of distinguished professional service.

At least, that was the time-honored traditional way of choosing the S.G.

Not any more, and not by the democrats.

It's purely a political advocacy pick now.

Hence the guy they chose. The career is undistinguished. It's the advocacy that counts.

Hopefully, he won't get through the confirmation process.
