Ben Carson includes "inspirational" portrait of himself with fundraising letter. Kinda creepy actually.

Courtesy of HuffPo: 

"Dear John," an enclosed letter reads, "It is an honor for me to count you as a friend. And I do count you as that. In appreciation, I've sent you this very special, very personal portrait. I hope you can see in the portrait what is in my heart -- a love for God, a love of country, and a deep desire to serve both ... and to serve you." 

In a separate letter, again addressed to John, Carson writes that the portrait "was commissioned just so I could give it to you. This makes it very special to me." 

Also enclosed with the lithograph was a four-page letter and fundraising appeal: a pre-paid envelope to send back a check and a Newsmax listicle of "12 Reasons Ben Carson Would Make a Good President." 

"I hope you can see in the portrait what is in my heart."

Uh... does anybody else see this as REALLY creepy?

Or is it just me?

    I see it as megalomaniacal-creepy.

    Very creepy. At least it wasn't the one with Jesus' arm on his shoulder.

    Look at the letter he sent his good friend (see on Huffpo). He says the drawing is "very personal" and that he wants to see his friend's signature on the donation form before him as he runs for president. What a creepy creepy person.

    1. With a gold-plated hologram, of course!

      Since the "plating" (a thin wash) completely obscures the portrait inside, the owner is left to read into the portrait whatever s/he wants. And who is to know differently, since only a fool would try to reclaim the gold from such a collectible.

    Oh it's creepy, alright. Wonder what's in it for John? Ben's obviously expecting a hefty check, not some chump change on the chest of drawers, so he can see what's in his heart wink wink. Are they going to play dress up and sing show tunes?

    Hey, John, count your listicles before leaving, this guy knows anesthesiologists,

    They don't like it when it's applied to them and their religion/culture, do they?

    What an ego. And almost as skillful in making his complexion lighter, a la Bobby Jindal.

    Creepy doesn't begin to describe this. Carson has been off his rocker for some time now.

  11. Does anyone else want to now know the names of the brain surgery patients he 'lost,' and the percentage of them that were Democrats, liberals or atheists...?

    No one who doesn't equates his or herself with God, would think to have a portrait drawn with him. Even on the chance the portrait wasn't Carson's idea, a modest, healthy measure of humility would make most anyone too embarrassed to display it. There's way too much wrong with this guy.

  12. Only the halo is missing. (((sigh)))

    1. I was thinking more along the lines of horns, a little square mustache square nice and dark under his nose and then pinning it on a dart board for practice.

      Earrings, clown collar, erase the eyes. The possibilities are endless.

  15. Just about everything Ben Carson says and/or does is REALLY creepy. There's something fundamentally wrong with him.

    Nah. Nowhere near as creepy as the painted portrait in his mansion with Jesus' hand on his shoulder.

      That is not Jesus in the painting. It is Ben's Tai Kwon Do instructor. Look again at the white robes and fiendish grin...

    That portrait is the same style the Seventh Day Advistist use in their publications. The missionaries, mostly elderly hispanic women,in my neighborhood, would leave their papers on my doorsteps.

    Are the Seventh Day Adventists behind Carson's strange portraits?

  24. Well, at least he managed to keep his eyes open long enough for the artist.

    BTW did you notice his priorities?

    God before Constitution. And We the People are an afterthought.

    I'll bet that portrait, printing, postage, etc were all paid for with PAC money. Maybe even our tax dollars from the little box we check on our income tax forms.

    And who is advising him? No one is going to read a four page letter begging for money. You've got at most three paragraphs on one page tops.

    I would fold it all up and mail it back to him in the prepaid envelope. That way he has to pay postage twice.

    All the other Republican candidates are types I recognize, though not in a good way. Carson, however, is really strange. The faraway look in his eyes, the vague smile, the overall disengagement. That he has gotten this far is troubling.
