The Post’s White Coats Moment

Passing out white coats to doctors at Obama White House health care photo op

If, on first pass, the photo seems compelling as a “gotcha,” it’s otherwise ridiculous for the NY Post to be hitting on the Administration for passing out white coats at Obama’s Rose Garden photo op with doctors. It’s ridiculous, that is, when you learn from The Post’s own story the coats were handed out to doctors who forgot to bring their own.
