Great moments in Political Discussions in Dental Office, part 1,427:

this guy, long term patient, comes in loaded for bear this morning! He's all set for me and out of his mouth spills the question: what would Obama have to do to make you NOT support him?

My immediate answer: "Why the hell should I have to answer questions like that? My Party is not on trial. Your Party is the one that started and couldn't pay for two totally unnecessary wars with the associated nightmares visited upon our military which you claim to hold in such high esteem. Your Party is the one who oversaw the absolute running-into-the-ground of the economy including the halving in value of the stock market which you hold so dear. And your Party is the one which nominated an individual who was and is so completely out of touch with anyone's reality that he lost badly to what you have stated to me many times was an incompetent, unqualified, and failed President. So you are the one who should really be answering the questions, not asking them.

The visit went uphill from there...I told him the allusion about the undecided voters which David Sedaris had told a few weeks ago...: “On Undecided Voter​s: "To put them in perspective, I think​ of being​ on an airplane.​ The flight attendant comes​ down the aisle​ with her food cart and, eventually,​ parks​ it beside my seat.​ “Can I inter​est you in the chick​en?​” she asks.​ “Or would​ you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broke​n glass​ in it?”

To be undecided in this elect​ion is to pause​ for a moment and then ask how the chick​en is cooked.”

Even he had to laugh.

1. Well done!

You know, smart people don't antagonize the guy who's going to be drilling in their mouth. After a bit of novocaine I'd think you could easily out talk any of them, their slurred speech is not convincing. Just make sure they don't bite you, they still have that last defense, if their eye teeth are intact, LOL.

5. Unfair argument.

Never argue politics with a dentist.

Whenever you are ready to deliver a killer rebuttal,
he is likely to shove a wad of cotton in your mouth.

6. Why someone would say that to someone else with a high-speed drill is beyond me. n/t
