Sit down, take a deep breath, and let me tell you something that may surprise you: It is possible to tell the same fabricated anecdote in more than one book. Yes, really.

That's not the supposed lie Politico said was the lie. Stop changing the story. The supposed lie was that he applied and got accepted. He didn't. He was offered a chance to get in by a general. When you go to WP it is fully paid for and Carson called it a scholarship..BFD. Got anymore twists you want to throw in?

At least I'm smart enough not to put it in print, promote it heavily, and then admit that I was lying after I took the money. That's called fraud. On the other hand, the whole story first with his MO...

It's kind of embarrassing to have to defend a narrative that the candidate has abandoned, isn't it?

But you have no idea what book it is in. You don't even know if it is in the book you posted. I do, in fact KNOW it is in the one I mentioned because THAT is the book it came from!

He hasn't abandoned it. He said the POLITICO story was a fabrication. You people are a riot. Like arguing with a 3 year old.

And that may be unfair. He may be quite intelligent, but he's most certainly ignorant of a lot of things. He's trained, but not educated - his knowledge is amile deep and an inch wide.

An educated mind will have the data at its disposal to realize that the idea that biblical Joseph built the pyramids for grain storage won't withstand scrutiny. Letting an intelligent mind work on bad or missing data is a sad waste - garbage in, garbage out.
He's an overpaid electrician.

Carson never admitted to lying. HE SAID THE POLITICO STORY IS A FABRICATION!

Is Carson electable? I think not. Or course, I think that about Hillary, too. I think America has a problem. 350 million people and we can't find a single human being fit for office.
