A ‘muddled’ politician?

TAHLEQUAH — Editor, Daily Press:

Mickey Edwards, former Oklahoma Republican congressman, spoke at Tulsa University Wednesday night about what he calls the “idiot” factor in national politics, an unwillingness to compromise. He named Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock as idiots, but called Newt Gingrich “one of the biggest idiots [he] ever met.”

But I bet he has never met one of Oklahoma’s newest congressmen, “Muddled” Mullin, who pledged in his victory speech Tuesday night to oppose everything Obama might propose.
