Since the people in charge of McCain's campaign aren't ever going to release his medical records without a fight all the way up to the Supreme Court, investigative reporters like me are going to have to make do with other means of digging for the truth -- including a quick trip to Seattle Grace.
"I've observed McCain on television on several occasions and have come up with some tentative diagnoses," Dr. McDreamy might reply. "For instance, I've noted that he has trouble going up and down the stairs of planes. He doesn't seem to have much functional control over his legs and knees." Interesting.
"And, during the debates with Obama, I noticed that his body movements are stiff. I can't say for sure without a thorough examination but off-hand I would guess that his spine was fused in at least one place. Plus his stiffness of gait and shuffling walk could be signs of neurological damage."
"What about his history of skin cancer?"
I also know for a fact that Dr. McDreamy is available for consultations every Thursday night at 8:00 pm. I bet that John would have absolutely no trouble getting an appointment.
Can I have one too?
PS: I'll have to wait to schedule my appointment with Dr. McDreamy until I get back from Iran. I'm leaving tomorrow and won't be back until Halloween. So, John, please don't bomb bomb bomb Iran while I'm gone!
