Seriously?, has Anyone bothered to tell the CDC authors of the XMRV CFS paper that was published today, that the more they yell "Shotgun!" to get their paper published before the FDA/NIH's, the more they are digging their own grave? The NCI, CC, and now the FDA and the NIH have found positive evidence of XMRV in CFS patients, but they are all wrong and you boys (excuse me, and girls) are right? You've been staring at your own reflections for wayyyyy too long. You really need to take a step back and look at what's going on with your tail ends:
Whoa dudes, what's happened to your um... clout!
But hey, thanks for the laugh I had reading your um... *cough*paper*cough* today. And for those poor co-authors who may have thought that having their names on the same paper as Bill Reeves might be a good way to gain kudos from the CDC echelons of power? Maybe steer their careers upward? Dudes. I mean.. Damn.
And no,no,no... the commercial doesn't mean you should take out more insurance on your incredibly crippled, antiquated, not to mention ineffective CFS policies and guidelines, of which you, and your colleagues at the CDC, are the only ones left in the world that take them seriously. Come to think of it, I'd bet my last dollar Most of your colleagues at the CDC do Not take them seriously. And now I think I get why no one has bothered to tell you of your folly. Look around, and don't be surprised that no one is behind you. Run along now, and ... oops, your rattle fell off. Got duct tape?
