Doctor Derp

You Can Lead A Whore To Knowledge,
But You Can't Make Him Think

This time it's not unsourced bullshit from The New York Times; someone w/ a name has attached it to information about just what a sad sack retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is:
Faced with increasing scrutiny about whether Mr. Carson — who leads in some Republican presidential polls — was capable of leading American foreign policy, two of his top advisers said in interviews with The New York Times that he had struggled to master the intricacies of the Middle East and national security and that intense tutoring was having little effect.

“Nobody has been able to sit down with him and have him get one iota of intelligent information about the Middle East,” Duane R. Clarridge, a top adviser to Mr. Carson on terrorism and national security, said in an interview. He also said Mr. Carson needed weekly conference calls briefing him on foreign policy so “we can make him smart.”
Although this Clarridge sounds like a jerk-off himself, just as one might well imagine anyone affiliated or associated w/ Dr. Dimbulb would be. Is Carson, like, a moron magnet?

Here's what a "legitimate" (i.e., unlike Clarridge, hasn't yet been convicted & pardoned) intelligence official had to say:
Michael V. Hayden, a former C.I.A. director, described a conversation he had had with Mr. Carson to MSNBC last week. “I had one lengthy phone call with Ben Carson two months ago,” Mr. Hayden said, “and his instincts are all right, but this is a database in which he’s very unfamiliar.”
Read between those lines.

And Jonathan Chait:
Ben Carson has now topped the Republican primary polls long enough that, perhaps in combination with the recent attack in Paris, his advisers now appear genuinely terrified that he might be elected president and are doing everything in their power to stop it. Or else they hate him.
As a long-time America-hater, this reporter is on the horns of a voting dilemma: Carson, or Trump? Trump, or Carson? Which one will bring America to its knees sooner? Although driving the country into a ditch & then running away denying everything while blaming someone else might be a more accurate vision of our future under either of these idiot bastards.
