God, I hope not.
And Ben Carson, I truly hope he is indeed a brilliant neurosurgeon because he is brain-dead stupid at everything else. For example, Carson wrote on his Facebook page regarding the Oregon shooting that he had operated on victims of gun violence "but I never saw a body with bullet holes that was more devastating than taking the right to arm ourselves away." (Click here for more on this stupidity.) Now you might agree with that. There was a quote a couple of years ago from some Tea Party lunatic fringe idiot who said "Your dead child doesn't trump my 2nd amendment rights." So Ben Carson may not be talking to himself with his foolish remarks. But like Fiorina, Ben Carson's right wing appeal is good for short term gain but isn't effective for a national campaign.
So it looks like once the GOP hard right nut cases get over their love affair with Trump, they'll have a couple more dalliances to get through before its time to get serious and get behind someone who can get the job done.
Or Marco Rubio.
Of course the longer this silly season plays out, the harder it is for Republicans to coalesce behind a single candidate. The GOP will be in such disarray, Hillary Clinton could probably carry the day come November 2016.
Assuming she gets there without getting "Bern'd".
Be good to one another. Another post coming up tomorrow.
