The Doctor Is In

Lake County's beleaguered Congressman, Joe Walsh, may not be a doctor but he plays one on YouTube:

Joe Walsh on the "life of the mother"
Here Walsh is caught on camera claiming that abortion is never medically necessary to save a life. While the claim may stand on rock solid GOP science, it may not be a glide-path to re-election. Walsh no doubt belatedly realized this and hastily called a do-over press conference:
The day after his comment that abortion is never necessary to save the life of a mother because of "modern technology and science" set off a firestorm of criticism, Rep. Joe Walsh took it back. Sort of.
Walsh walks back abortion comments – a bit
For any candidate that has to hastily call a press conference to clarify their stand on abortion, 18 days before an election, your LakeCountyEye recommends polishing up the resume and preparing to find a new line of work.

Walsh, your LakeCountyEye has learned, has that base covered and is already peddling a demo video to the cable channels called ...
Ask Doctor Joe!
The show features Walsh in a townhall format, taking Q&A from an audience. Each episode is structured to present ten timely medical tips and suggestions for better health and well being. Your LakeCountyEye has obtained a bootleg clip of the first installment of Ask Doctor Joe!:
