In Soviet US the Party knows better than the doctors

The Washington Post is writing about political pressure put on former Bush administration Surgeon General.

Richard H. Carmona, who served as the Surgeon General from 2002 to 2006, testified today at a House committee hearing that political appointees in the administration routinely scrubbed his speeches and reports for “politically sensitive” topics.

That kinda sounds like how the political officers operated in Soviet Union.
