The decor at Ben Carson’s home in Maryland shows that Donald Trump may not have the biggest ego among the Republican candidates. On display are awards, certificates, medals, and a painting of himself with Jesus

1. Perhaps Carson does not speak of it, to outsiders?

I don't have the ability to post pics here but you do a great job of it. There is a pic floating around on Facebook and elsewhere of Dr. Ben with Stonehenge behind him "I believe this is a dog petting park built by God after the flood"
Or something like that. If you could find that it would be great.

10. Mrs. Snark is an editor and she pointed out to me

that the P should have been capitalized. So much fail in that thing.
I suspect he signed off on the text before production, so there was no recourse.

35. Actually..

Ben Carson appears to have a white doctor's coat on, see the lapel. Jesus has on a white robe though, which is how he is usually depicted. However, it is still weird to have a picture of yourself with Jesus.

38. Carson is just plain weird...

...I am thinking that he really believes the shit he puts out and on some level really thinks that he has palled around with Jesus.

IMO, he's not playing with a full deck.

25. Steven Harper was our Carson exept we weren't told about it since the CBC was scared shitless

of the Harpster until after he was gone

Here's some more weirdness on the Nickelback theme. Kroeger is from Abbotsford which means he's probably a Christian rocker. That would explain the suck

The answer to that question would tell me if he is a nut. If there are portraits of other family members on the walls, I give him a pass on his shrine

30. Why does Jesus have on a Spa terry? Carson looks like he might be on Miami Vice.

 

It's like when they got to Jesus's face, time was short so they hurried.

Ben Carson thinks media scrutiny of his lies is worse than birtherism
By Laura Clawson - Monday Nov 09, 2015 · 7:04 AM PST

Ben Carson is either a giant liar or uniquely persecuted. Guess which version Carson is pushing. As his stories about himself, told in his book Gifted Hands and many speeches over the years, have come under scrutiny in recent days and several have failed to hold up, Carson isn’t trying to produce evidence his stories were true. He’s just saying the media is being mean to him as they’ve been mean to no one else ever.

Yes, he has been asked if what he’s facing is worse than birtherism, and Carson’s answer was yes. Carson told Meet the Press’ Chris Jansing that:

I have always said that I expect to be vetted. But being vetted and what is going on with me, "You said this 30 years ago, you said this 20 years ago, this didn't exist, this didn't." You know, I just, I have not seen that with anyone else. Or if you can show me where that's happened with someone else, I will take that statement back.

Jansing, obviously, came back with “Bill Clinton or the president with his birth certificate.” Carson’s response: “No, not like this” and “Not even close.” ............


Of course, Ben Carson does not perceive himself as ridiculous in his current assumed role and does not say things he perceives as ridiculous. Clinton and Obama do not have a history of being ridiculous. So, is ridicule in politics politically incorrect if the candidate is ridiculous? If you create an infotainment circus for a political party's primaryin an inter-active world, don't complain if the crowd joins the clowns in the center ring.

Carson said we shouldn't make a big deal over this painting because it really happened.
