Why exactly is Ben Carson still running for president? Who cares, when he continues to do things like let the cat out of the bag on Scalia’s Supreme Court replacement.
Asked on WRNN 99.5 FM in South Carolina if his fellow candidates would say the same thing about waiting to nominate a new justice if there was a Republican president, Carson replied, "No, they wouldn't."
His brain eventually did catch up to his mouth so he added that you have to "recognize that the two picks that the president has selected are ideologues, so there's really no reason to believe that his next pick wouldn't be an ideologue also." But then he kept digging:
Carson said the Supreme Court has become a "political tool," adding that it might be time to look at term limits for the justices.
Given that the this Supreme Court has been tilted to the far right, that statement doesn't really bail him out. At some point, either the thrill or the grift from running for president is going to run out, and we'll have to bid farewell to Ben Carson. Until then, keep on talking, Dr. Carson!
