Rep. Paul Gosar, DDS

Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S. of Arizona is one of those nut jobs we have in office somehow. It seems that Arizona is contesting Florida for the title of The State Having The Most Nut Jobs In Office.

What brought this . . . person . . . to mind was a “tweet” he made which stated “The FBI raid on Trump’s home tells us one thing. Failure is not an option. We must destroy the FBI. We must save America. I stand with Donald J. Trump.

Clearly, describing the execution of a legal search warrant as a raid begins the rhetoric, and it only gets crazier from there.

But this is not my point. My point is the guy who refers to himself in the tweet as “Rep. Paul Gosar, DDS.” He is a member of the federal House of Representatives and a doctor of dental surgery. But what part of a dental education applies to his role as a political representative? Really? Is it the “open wide, now swallow” part?

Back when I was a magazine editor, I had the practice of including someone’s professional or educational status, e.g. M.D., Ph.D., only if that was a qualification for the positions they were presenting in their article. So, if they wrote about something in their field they were Author Name, Ph.D. but if they were writing outside of it, they just were listed as Author Name.

Clearly this “worthy” wants the esteem we give to doctors to help him in his political standing, but does it? Did Ben Carson’s status as neurosurgeon support his claim that the pyramids were built as grain storage buildings?
