Dr. Keith Ablow, professional douchebag/member of Fox’s “Medical A-Team,”  is known for his general assholery and sometimes-shady health advice.

It does my heart good to see women of all races embrace Michelle Obama. It is too rare indeed for a brown-skinned woman, a descendant of slaves, a product of Chicago’s South Side to be lauded on an international stage.

No, Michelle Obama Topless On A Magazine Cover Is Not “Artsy”

Plenty of absurd things are “artsy,” like crafting Jesus on the cross out of elephant feces or giving birth inside an art gallery as a live action installation.
