It’s Good Ta Be Da King: Abdullah Commandeers Entire Wing of New York Presbyterian Hospital

Following the signing of the Health Care bill, Saudi King Abdullah reportedly called President Obama to congratulate him on the US taking a step toward embracing a superior universal health care system like the one that can be found in Saudi Arabia.

The health care in Saudia Arabia is so awesome that Abdullah came to the US last week to brag about it — and to have back surgery in New York.

To further familiarize New Yorkers with health care, Saudi-style, Abdullah has taken over an entire wing of the hospital and displaced other patients:

Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah is causing his own diplomatic drama at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, where the 86 year-old monarch has commandeered an entire wing as he recovers from back surgery on the VIP floor.
[...]
A family member of one patient told us, “The king has taken the entire luxury treatment wing and booked out all the rooms, even though they are empty and he doesn’t need them, to protect his privacy.

“Patients are grumbling that they have been moved out to other areas of the hospital, and that despite there being a number of unused VIP treatment rooms, they can’t be moved into them because they are all reserved for the king of Saudi Arabia.”

And what visit from a super-wealthy Saudi King who made his bones peddling oil would be complete without leading by example when it comes to climate change?

First, a reminder that appeared at The Hill in June of this year:

Second, King Abdullah is committed to tackling the pressing issue of global climate change and has offered billions in research to help save our planet. The king views the challenge of global warming in the context of mankind’s moral obligation to save the earth.

And the hypocrisy chaser from the New York Post concerning the King’s arrival in New York last week:

Abdullah arrived in town on Monday of last week with an enormous entourage. He chartered three flights to JFK, arrived with a massive security team and a film crew, and left the airport in a convoy of 40 vehicles, including 20 for luggage alone.

I can feel it getting hotter already. Maybe the King is using reverse psychology though, because nothing makes me want to give up buying oil and gasoline and start riding a bike everywhere like reading this kind of stuff.
