Dr. Fraudulent: "Yeah I'm a real doctor. I see patients and everything..."

Check out this skeevy hipster captured on film by Ann Althouse. (Note to hipsters: Beware the smart blonde asking innocent questions!) Then check out his Men-Without-Chests "bio" below [emphasis added:]

Patrick McKenna grew up in the northern Wisconsin town of Antigo. After earning his bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from UW-Madison, he took an untraditional path to medicine by first pursuing an MBA in Chicago and a Masters in Fine Arts at the University of Alaska. Ultimately, though, his Wisconsin roots lured him back to The Dairy State to attend medical school at the UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health. Patrick’s leadership and commitment to public service are evidenced by his work during medical school as a LOCUS Fellow and with the MEDIC free clinics in Madison. He served as MEDIC Council president during his second year and received the 2006 McGovern-Tracy Scholar award, which recognizes medical students who exemplify values of community service and leadership while in training. He also has a passion for global health and served as both a member and co-chair of the UW Global Health Interest Group. In his spare time, Patrick enjoys athletics of all kinds, including basketball, broomball, running, bicycling, canoeing, and skiing. He also enjoys gardening, cooking, baking, and sewing, and he has strong interests in politics, rural policy, sustainability, and creative writing. -- Patrick A McKenna MD | UW Family Medicine

Quel homme! Formi-dab! What a catch!

Girls of all genders, get in line! If this skeevy hipster is willing to write fraudulent doctor's notes, he's probably pretty handy with a prescription pad too. Think of the money and legal hassle you'd save with legit pharmaceuticals.

Not only that, this "Doctor Feelgood" cooks! He bakes, and he sews, and sure plays a mean broomball! (aka "Hockey for those whose testicles have retracted.")

Note also that he is one of those who takes the "untraditional path," does commitment (to public service), and is "passionate" (about global health, which is almost as good as being "passionate" about "world peace." ) But best of all is his "strong" interest in the thing he evidently does best in this video, "creative writing."

Sustainability? As in endless government entitlements?

Deception and decoy are important tools in war, and the public discussions in WI are war of a sort.

Pardon my archaic credentialism, but doesn't a doctor need a license to practice medicine in any given state? I mean, PASSING MED SCHOOL does NOT make you a doctor. It makes you a med. school graduate.

I saw no reference to any medical license in Graduate (not Dr.) McKenna's bio.

I am curious about how many of Gov. Walker's supporters have taken advantage of this service.

Hey doc, can you write me a Viagra prescription? My wife and I are going to protest Gov. Walker at home in our own way.

With all that schooling, he surely has a Phd in something.

I hope this vapide will be prosecuted. Without mercy. The Law and its absolute authority need to be confirmed and asserted, NOW.

...he has strong interests in politics, rural policy, sustainability, and creative writing.

And as my girlfriend's Jewish grandmother would append, "Also a doctor."

And in case anybody's still wondering, this guy is a perfect example of the medicos in California who write scrips for "medical" marijuana. Ask me how I know that.

OK, I'll bite. How do you know that? :)

Looks like that "creative writing" hobby has come in handy. Oh, btw, when did you pass your boards, "Doc"? I couldn't find a "Patrick McKenna" licensed to practice medicine in Wisconsin, either MD or DO. I won't say my internet search was comprehensive, but it is to be hoped that someone else is doing some digging as well.

I see "Doc" has a lot of interests, butt none of them are women. Is that sustainable for the species?

Absolutetly outstanding, Gerard. This bit of snark earns you my coveted "PFC Jackson Accolade"

I wouldn't venture out there just yet fellas. This sniper's got talent

All those white lab coats. They look the same ones Obama supplied to his astroturfed Doctor audience.

This jerk-off is a quack. I can't wait until his license gets revoked.

The comments about Dr. McKenna are unfounded. He is one of the best doctors I have ever had. I hate doctors in general, but McKenna is one of the few I trust. Using your own trivial political biases to pass judgement on a really great doctor who you have absolutely no knowledge of is really kind of shameful.

Missing the point Morris. Just missing the point.
