Ben Carson Can’t Find A Path

Really, that’s what he said. Just this afternoon. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson will end his presidential bid, saying that Super Tuesday’s election results left him with no “political path forward.” The announcement marks the closing chapter of a run that showed flashes of promise and fundraising prowess, but suffered a steep fall after Carson’s lack of fluency on foreign policy… Read more »

Oh PLEASE Let This Happen

Ben Carson said tonight that he is “open” to being Donald Trump’s VP candidate. Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said on the day of the New Hampshire primary that he was open to serving as vice president under another candidate, specifically saying that he would be willing to sit down and discuss it with Donald Trump. “Would you be ever open… Read more »

You Can’t Make This Shit Up, Folks

Some bizarre stories out there today, my friends. Right wingers are weird. First up, the ongoing laugh riot that is #Y’AllQaeda. I’ve generally been staying away from the coverage of the Oregon hootenanny (save for invoking their battle flag, of course) but this is just too good to pass up. Drinking up the donations! Hahahahahaha. Joe Oshaugnessy, an Arizona militiaman, has… Read more »

Things You Won’t See In The American Media

Keeping Track Of All The Ben Carson Lies

If you’re struggling to keep up with all of the stories of Ben Carson’s life that now appear to be completely fabricated, Kevin Drum at Mother Jones is here to help. He has a nice summary of all the different problematic Carson stories. My personal favorite is the Yale psychology class hoax. The Psychology Test at Yale Then: “The day before I’d… Read more »

Today’s Sign Of The Apocalypse

The New York Times reports today that for the first time since it began polling in July, Donald Trump is no longer leading a national GOP primary poll. Ben Carson leads, and if ever three words could heighten my interest in New Zealand real estate, those are the ones. Ben Carson has taken a narrow lead nationally in the Republican presidential campaign,… Read more »

Dear Ben: Enough With The Slavery And Holocaust References

I bet you didn’t know that everything Ben Carson doesn’t like is either just like or worse than slavery. And when given the chance to walk them back, Carson instead doubles down. I’ve concluded that he is a bigger buffoon than Trump. At least the Donald has enough self-awareness to recognize, deep down, that he’s playing the role of carnival… Read more »
