This blog's poet-in-residence The Deadline Poet (Calvin Trillin) skewers one of the wackiest of the Klowns: Ben Carson, MD (University of Michigan Medical School). BonkersBen can find neither his a$$ nor anything in the Middle East and yet he believes he should be POTUS 45. It is telling when The Trumpster condemns BonkersBen as a sociopath, capable of child-molestation. This is a classic case of the pot, the kettle, and the color black. If this is a (fair & balanced) classic case of political insanity, so be it.

Ben Carson’s Past And Present
By The Deadline Poet (Calvin Trillin)
Tag Cloud of the following piece of writing
When Carson claims he was a bad-ass youth,
His tales and actual facts vary.
But even if he didn’t wield a shiv,
The man’s ideas alone are scary. Ω
