He knows enough to talk about things when he knows what he’s talking about.
Dr. Carson, there is the matter of whether you’re good at politics. You are a good man.
Dr. Carson, it’s time to take this campaign of yours off life support. If it’s any comfort, this will make us political pundits, or at least the few of us who are still conjoined to our consciences, feel better.
His hackneyed premise is that Ben Carson is too wise a man to be in politics. What to make of this? O’Rourke’s been dry humping his “all politicians are scum” shtick since Parliament of Whores. Is PJ not getting enough attention that he needs to write an absurd contrarian piece of dogshit to keep off of food stamps? Any objective observation about Ben Carson identifies him to be a know-nothing and a goddamn fool. O’Rourke can’t be serious, can he? He has shown in the past that he can have an eagle eye for bullshit in politics. But to say that Ben Carson is cooked tells us that O’Rourke isn’t paying attention at all. Carson’s next in line for the royal treatment from the crazies. His star is on the rise while PJ thinks he’s on a fool’s errand. I will agree with him there. But this ass-licking article is electronic trash. He’ll garner a few clicks, but most people will eviscerate him for being utterly unaware of what he is doing. I just can’t believe that PJ O’Rourke has been reduced to unreflective, uninformed shilling.
Hey PJ, why don’t you take your own advice? Conclude that you are too good for punditry and go away.
