If you think Ben Carson the man is kind of bizarre, you should take a look at his house.

Aw what now?
Courtesy of the Guardian:  

The decor at Ben Carson’s home in Maryland shows that Donald Trump may not have the biggest ego among the Republican candidates. On display are awards, certificates, medals, and a painting of himself with Jesus.

This is that picture of Ben and his homie Jesus.

Seriously WHO has a picture painted of themselves with Jesus?

Not to nitpick, but isn't that supposed to be "proverbs" 22:4?

I guess Ben was too busy learning how to cut open human brains to learn anything about spelling.

There are many more photos at the link which show that Carson's home is literally covered with certificates, photos, and medals all paying homage to his greatness.

Speaking of proverbs wasn't there one in the Bible about pride and a fall?

By the way this is his wife Candy Carson.

(Be nice.)

And of course there are still more of Carson's lies coming to light almost on an hourly basis now.

At this point I think Carson's goose is cooked.

Or at least it should be.

But then again attempting to predict what the loons in the Right Wing might do in response to these revelations is becoming just about impossible.

    Wow, Jesus has not aged a day from the pictures I remember of him when I was a child. I am impressed that he posed with Ben Carson. Have you heard Mrs. Carson singing the National Anthem? She does that at every event. Let's just say...she has a voice only a mother can appreciate ..or people who have paid a huge sum to be allowed to sit and listen to her husband. The crazy runs very deep in that family!

      Just speculating, but is Candy a wealthy woman in her own right? Maybe she is the only one he could find that agrees with his very high opinion of himself. There is an old saying "God matched them as he made them." Seems true in the case of the Carsons. Please tell me they do not have children.

      There are children. Bennie Boy missed most of that part.

      According to Candy, "sometimes I felt like a single mom because he wasn't around most of the time."
      http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/presidential-campaign/257849-with-ben-carson-a-contender-a-look-at-wife-candy

      Ben chose getting ahead over his family. He left Candy alone to feel single. I suppose they went regularly to church and the children, when they were young, had that example of their faith.

      The children grew up to be successful. At least that is what their social media claims. They are adults now and won't be vetted.

    It's perversely fascinating to watch the loonies of the right embrace Carson, and not make a peep about his wife, after the years of vitriol they have dumped on Obama and Michelle. Maybe their knickers were in a knot not because there was a black man in the White House, but because the black man in the White House is smarter, more accomplished, wittier, and more sophisticated than they are in their wildest dreams? With a better family, also too.
    In short: uppity.

    If you haven't already, you have to check out the Guardian article. His "home" is like a museum to Ben himself. It looks like he's already started his presidential library. After seeing the interior of his home, I'm having trouble deciding whether he or T Rump is the bigger egomaniac.

  10. The inclusion of a picture of Mrs. Carson with the caption "be nice" was sexist as f*ck.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hardly. The point of including her picture (And by the way try to find one on the internet that is much better) was to help illustrate Carson's megalomania.

      EVERYTHING in his home, including his wife, are there to put a spotlight on him. HE is the most accomplished, HE is the best looking, HE is one worthy of attention.

      Yes she has her own quite impressive accomplishments, but they pale in comparison to her husband's. At least that is the way he wants it to appear.

      By the way if you think he has not cheated on her several times in their past, I have a bridge I would like to sell you. These super super religious types, with doting wives, are almost always incredible hypocrites, and I seriously doubt he is turning down too many opportunities to take advantage of good looks and fame.

      How the hell would you (Gryphen) know about whether Carson has been faithful to his wife? With these examples of how his home is decorated do you really think that a mistress would stay in the shadows if he had one? I don't like Carson one bit, but that is a pretty shitty thing to say without any proof or backup. I suspect Gryphen is projecting. Would love to hear the ex Mrs Gryphen's take on their marriage.

    As far as Candy, I have not heard her sing, but it takes a special kind of hubris to sing the national anthem every time your husband takes a stage. For all that I despise Condi Rice, I don;t recall her sitting down at every piano she saw and playing Chopin, and she is a classically trained pianist. I suspect the Carsons are just too cheap to hire someone to sing, or their organization is too loose to find a volunteer where they are performing, er speaking, er lying.

    Here's the problem with Ben Carson: he has all these gifts, but a deep reservoir of self-doubt that he cannot overcome. His whole life has been about shaking a sense of not being good enough, so he's had to overachieve, while simultaneously telling himself he really IS better than anyone else, just so he can sleep at night.

    SO his background - featuring the anger he barely holds in check all his life - has transmogrified into a hero's journey - from field hand to house boy - starring Ben Carson as all three persons in the Trinity. He is cursed with the authoritarian mind set, as well as infected with a strong religious fervor that exists because GOD chose BEN, but only after Ben chose God, first. What this means is that he ALWAYS has to be the smartest, purest guy in the room, and everyone else, in comparison, is stupid and impure, ESPECIALLY "secular progressives."

    Oh, my FSM! This guy is a powder keg, ready to blow! He's spent the last 40 years surrounding himself with fawning sycophants, and only now that he's being called out in the cold light of - you know- reality! are the surgical mask and halo slipping, and the monster coming out.

    I made it a point to read Ben Carson's book, Gifted Hands, once my two evangelical sisters got excited about his candidacy. My overwhelming take from the book as a whole is his extreme arrogance and his view of himself as the savior to other African Americans. Those pictures of his home were not in the book, but they totally reinforce my impression of him from the book.

    Where was the vetting on the stupid final exam story? How does his story demonstrate who is the most honest? How would lying about exams being burned and telling students that they would need to retake the exams result in your identifying who is the most HONEST? Really? If everybody in the class walked out, refusing to retake a test that they had already taken, and Carson was the only one who stayed to do it over--it shows who is the most obedient, or compliant not the most honest. He is constantly saying how honest he is, but his book isn;t really helping him there. Also, what was the point of having a photographer there to take the photo of honest Carson receiving $10 from his teacher? Who goes through the trouble of having a photographer to document the event, if no photos of it exists? Also, what would they have done if 25 kids stayed to take the test? How would they determine the "Most Honest" or whatever the test was about- if more than one person behaved the same way?

    When he said he's been put under more scrutiny than President Obama, I almost lost my cookies! Give me a frigging break!

    Carson needs to be kicked in his ass and run off the stage! He is a nut job and he's in no way qualified to run this country!

    I can't help but wonder about his being declared an outstanding doctor. Who put that out there? Would love their name(s) and proof sources of what he's actually accomplished medically. I wonder if any of the journalist are in touch with any of his former patients? Plus, I wonder what the nurses think of him? They'd be the real truth tellers!

    With Trump, the bravado is easier to swallow, because Donald doesn't push any religious dogma down people's throats for votes. He wants the evangelical vote, but his platform isn't self-promotion of his faith, and while Trump has a yuuuge ego in his own right, still doesn't do sacrilege by having his image painted alongside Jesus.
