I do wonder if he has the slightest awareness of what a fool and joke he has become. Like Rudy.

That's a good question, I wonder if he kept up his licensing and credentials when he went full blown TV grifter. I'm going to guess no, but it sounds like he'll fit in as a right wing mouthpiece on health issues.

I'm sure he'd have to do some re-training at the least. And what hospital is going to want to hire him?
It's unlikely he actually needs the money, of course.

Are they taking bets on how long it takes him to move out of PA?

Does Oz have contact info for Ron DeSantis, I wonder?

Quote:
Office of Governor Ron DeSantis
State of Florida
The Capitol
400 S. Monroe St.
Tallahassee, FL 32399-0001

(850) 717-9337

For more immediate service, please include email address with your letter or phone call.

Email the Governor at GovernorRon.Desantis@eog.myflorida.com
Due to the high volume of emails sent to the Governor, there may be a delay in responding to your email.
If DeSantis hires him he picks up 2.5 million votes in Pennsylvania. What's not to like?

For sure he'd need re-training and I can't imagine he's actually practiced in years. I'm not exactly sure that his field is like riding a bike where you can take a few classes and be up to speed again.

As far as money goes, I'm sure he blew a good portion on his campaign and crudite ain't cheap.

Doesn't he run some Reiki nonsense clinic with his wife or something?

Sure he was. Just like Herschel Walker lives in Georgia!
