Great Surgeon, beneficiary of public aid becomes Right-wing Hypocrite
Salon.com posted an article titled: The tragedy of Ben Carson: How a brilliant doctor turned into a right-wing provocateur.
Per wikipedia: “He is the first surgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins joined at the head. In 1987 Carson separated conjoined twins, the Binder twins, who had been joined at the back of the head (craniopagus twins). The 70-member surgical team, led by Carson, worked for 22 hours. At the end, the twins were separated; both survived. Carson is the Colin Powell of Medicine. “ He made history and to top it off was born to poverty, son of a single mom, went on to achieve greatness in the field of surgery.
Now he has set himself up for self-humiliation for unlike the calm, intelligent, steadfast manner of General Colin Powell; Carson has decided to be just one more of the crazies similar to the likes of Cruz and Huckabee, Palin. This is a man I truly admired – what a waste. The irony of it all is that he is likely more liberal than he makes himself out to be. Where/when did he lose the empathy he had as a doctor and when did he forget where he came from? He had all the greatness to run as a serious-minded democrat – an easy VP for Hilary to then follow as the second African American president. But he drank the Crazyaide, and is now just another Right-wing hypocrite. Enjoy your ride in the Clown car while it lasts!!
