There’s nothing funnier than Republicans’ attempts to appeal to mooching low-information voters — be they welfare kings or strapping young sluts — by getting behind absurd (but invariably “well-spoken”) black, Latino, women etc. candidates. You see, women just want to vote for women, the blahs just want to vote for other blahs. Liberals are the real hypocrites because they liked Hillary Clinton but not Sarah Palin. And party of Lincoln. Blacks should vote Republican because they hate teh ghey. Latinos are natural Republicans because they start businesses. I forget why women are really conservatives, but there’s some reason, maybe something to do with security moms.
Ben Carson is my favorite conservative great black hope in a while.
Overnight, he was embraced by conservatives including those at The Wall Street Journal editorial page, which proclaimed, “Ben Carson for President” — a suggestion Dr. Carson helped feed at a high-profile gathering last weekend, the Conservative Political Action Conference. He was interrupted by sustained cheers when he coyly said, “Let’s just say if you magically put me in the White House…”
Herman Cain was funny, but he was just a standard issue Galtian guy who happened to be black. Ben Carson used to be on Charlie Rose, speaking very seriously about this and that. He’s separated Siamese twins but he doesn’t believe in evolution.
I hope we’ll be seeing more of this guy, but I have my doubts.
