You really have to work hard to be dumber than Ted Cruz. But that’s where Ben Carson has decided to dig in his heels as a presidential candidate. Here he is asserting in an interview that gay marriage is like a gateway drug. He says stranger unions will follow:
Carson started out saying if you “change the definition of marriage for one group, what do you say to the next group?”
The interviewer then asked the logical follow-up:
“What is the next group?” Harwood interjected.
“There are more groups, I guarantee,” Carson said. “I think you know there are more groups. Everybody knows there are more groups.”
I don’t know that…so explain your dumb ass. Answer the question:
“Well, but what other groups are there?”
Unfortunately, the interviewer lets poor Ben off the hook by putting the proper words in his mouth:
“You mean like bigamy or something?” Harwood asked.
“That’s a possibility, that’s a possibility,” Carson said.
Hey, wasn’t Carson done talking about gays?
“I simply have decided I’m not going to really talk about that issue anymore because every time I’m gaining momentum, the political press says, ‘Let’s talk about gay rights.’ And I’m just not going to fall for that anymore,” Carson said.
But he can’t help himself. None of them can. They’re positively obsessed, frightened that they will lose votes if they don’t stand up for the straights.
