A couple of months ago, I was creating a Medicare Part D presentation for pharmacists. I was doing research on the impact of this monstrosity on pharmacists when I ran across one of the funniest blogs on the internet, The Angry Pharmacist.
Here are the posts I found about Medicare Part D (with the profanity bleeped a bit–although I understand why he was cussing). My audience loved it when I read these snippets–they all thought that Medicare Part D is stupid too.

Medicare Part D – Day 1
In the words of my boss:
“More people will die because of MediCare Part D than Hurricane Katrina”.
In the words of me:
“This is a complete and utter clusterf&%#”.

Medicare Part D – Day 2
Day two of the MediCare part D fiasco has come and gone.
I must say, that this is the biggest clusterf&%$ in the last 40 years of pharmacy.

Medicare Part Disaster.
The saga continues. After a nice relaxing dinner, a few drinks and a puff of some fine pipe tobacco, i’m ready to bitch more about Medicare Part D(iaster).

Medicare Part D – Aftermath
Sorry I havent been posting much. This medicare part D bull^&$ has finally stopped hitting the fan, so now I have a breather.

Medicare Part D – 1 year later
If you’re a pharmacist, and reading this, you’re probably drunk (or hung over). I just had about 5 shots and a bottle of wine with a dentist friend of mine, so this might not make too much sense (im pretty hammered). But you’ll understand why (if you’re not a pharmacist) if you read this entry.
Needless to say, today was chaos, hell, and a bit of clusterf$%@ all rolled into one. Words cannot describe it. All I can say is that if you were working in pharmacy 1 year ago (when Medicare part D sh&^ hit the fan) it was like Deja Vu.
I just stopped over there, and the AP has some hilarious posts up. I particularly like this one, Showers Are Your Friend.
