Beck Hammers Carson for Prison Sex Statement

Wow, color me surprised. Glenn Beck has come out with all guns blazing at Ben Carson, calling his claim that prison sex proves that being gay is a choice “the dumbest thing I’ve ever had” and saying that it may well kill Carson’s ambition to win the Republican presidential nomination.

“Goodbye to his presidential career,” Beck said. “It’s over. It’s over. There is no way to recover from that. That just sounds like a lunatic … That is just a ridiculous statement on a million fronts. A ridiculous statement.”

“It’s not just that he didn’t see [the question] coming,” Beck continued. “It’s that he just thought that was a good answer. That was good enough for him. Just [imagine] I’m at a cocktail party and I’m talking to a friend and they say ‘well yeah, you know, you go to prison and you’re straight, you get out and you’re gay,’ don’t you look at your friend — I don’t care if he’s the guy who works at the 7-Eleven and he’s not running for president ever — don’t you go, ‘That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard’?”

Well yes, Glenn, I do. Until I hear your show the next time, when it is inevitably replaced by something even dumber. Stopped clocks and all that.

    “the dumbest thing I’ve ever had

    What is…prison sex?

  • observer

    I’m assuming “had” is supposed to be “heard.” If so, considering the dumb shit Beck has heard come out of his own mouth, Carson’s statement is dumb beyond imagination.

  • John Pieret

    Carson may be flaming out faster than Herman Cain did last election cycle. Beck pronouncing his campaign dead for having made the prison sex comment and Bryan Fischer pronouncing his campaign dead for having apologized for it. Talk about Scylla and Charybdis!

  • Doubting Thomas

    How is it then that Beck misses all of the other incredibly stupid things said by Republicans every damn day?

    The highlight, for me, was opening for Kraftwerk, back when I was the keyboardist for Prison Sex Statement*.

     

    * We broke up after our second album, Onanonagain (the follow-up to our first, Onanon), due to philisophical differences between the band’s members, twelve keyboardists (some wanted to go political, while others just wanted to make songs that went on forever for no reason, repetitively, and had no point).

    Modusoperandi’s secret past as a prog rocker, revealed!

    Numenaster, it’s no secret. Everybody knows I’ve been in all of the bands, that one being more electronic than prog rock. You might be thinking of my work in Fink Ployd. Those songs went on forever for no reason, repetitively, and had no point too, but in a different way.

    Hmm, Glenn Beck saying someone else sounds like a lunatic.

    Mr. Pot, meet Mr. Kettle.

    Doubting Thomas asks (rhetorically):

    How is that Glenn Beck missed all the incredibly stupid things Glenn Beck said that very same day?

    Beck knows that it is only a matter of time before one of his fraud schemes unravels and he is facing hard time. Knowing he will eventually face prison, he is in very, very deep denial. Sure, Carson’s statement is the usual load of conservative crap, but Beck ain’t taking any chances.

    There is nothing a Republican can say that is too stupid to keep him from being a coender.

    @ ^ Bustergii : Ah, ya coulda said a contender!

    (Not that I can ever talk when it comes to tpyos!)

    Ole Mittens Rmoney vanished durn fast this time round too didn’t he?

    But I believe Aussie rugby player Mal Meninga still holds the all time record for shortest ever political career – as seen here in all its meteoric “glory” :

    All 28 seconds of it. (Well almost. They did skip the boring bits i.e. the first 15-20 secs of it.)

    The shame being that there are so many politicians we are all cursed with, both sides of the pond, that if all things were equal and life was fairer then a maidens kiss then their careers should have been far far shorter then Meninga’s…but alas…we are all fucked up like a Christmas turkey on that one!
