TONSILLECTOMIES OF GREED: This was just another statement where Obama revealed a truly staggering degree of medical ignorance. The fact is that it’s ridiculously hard to get doctors to take out tonsils now, as it’s gone completely out of style. My sister had to go from one doctor to another before she could get my nephew’s tonsils removed — though once they were, his endless series of strep throats and sinus infections stopped. But it was like pulling teeth to get them to pull the tonsils.
Not quite as dumb as the painkillers-for-heart-trouble remark, but close.
