Politicians say the darndest things

Gazette staff October 15th, 2013

Take Rep. Mike Ritze (R-Broken Arrow), for instance. In the scramble to convince his constituents that the Affordable Care Act is a bad idea, he has resorted to wondrous fantasy.

Did you know, for instance, that the British pull their own teeth?

“The British think they have dental care but they can’t see a dentist,” the Tulsa World quoted him as saying at a recent Tulsa County Republican Men’s Club. “They just go to the hardware store and get a pair of pliers and pull their own teeth.”

Ritze, by the way, is a physician. His father was an oral surgeon, the World reports: “So I’ve looked at teeth a lot.”

In related “darndest” news, Markwayne Mullin (R-Westville) tells us about the four (!!) branches of government (all spelling and grammar sic):

“This country isn’t ran by just one individual it’s ran by four branches, but three branches that are in control of this,” MSNBC reported Mullin saying last week. “Not all of us is going to get 100% of what we want, but we should do what’s right.”
