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.
