    There are a lot of Republican doctor/legislators who should be repudiated by their schools.

    •  And lawyers. (0+ / 0-)

      I give you two examples:
      Louie Gohmert and John Roberts.  Roberts has been a legal embarrassment since Reagan hired him.  Back then, he issued several questionable legal opinions.  Here's one, from the American Center for Law and Justice:

      As a senior legal adviser to President Reagan, John Roberts concluded that a memorial service for aborted fetuses, organized by a group of California doctors who opposed Roe v. Wade, was "an entirely appropriate means of calling attention to the abortion tragedy.  The president's position is that the fetuses were human beings, or at least cannot be proven not to have been, and accordingly a memorial service would seem an entirely appropriate means of calling attention to the abortion tragedy," wrote Roberts.
      ...
      The dispute reached the U.S. Supreme Court, which upheld lower court decisions that the county could bury or cremate the fetuses but could not arrange or join in religious services.
      Lots more examples of Roberts' strange ideas on jurisprudence at the linked site.

      Louie Gohmert requires no  examples other than listening to anything he has to say about anything.

        sitcom dumb ass laughingstock, particularly those "down home" characterture types, from old television shows in my mind—a malicious Gomer Pyle when I can keep the mental images separate.

        Whatever district keeps sending him up to the Hill has to be either desolation itself or involved in a very bad joke.

          for an intellectual in East Texas.  His congressional district, District 1, is located just southeast of Dallas, from Tyler south to Lufkin and east to the Louisiana border.
