LOL, Someone really needs to get those two together, it would just be the most awesome thing.
I don't know that Carson is electable as president, he seems to have gone past a line where you start wondering what is wrong with him. His mild demeanor and looking at the sky and rubbing his hands when he spoke seemed quirky at first but it's looking increasingly psycho-scary ... like he might snap big time any second.
Either he really was some sort of psycho hitting people with hammers and padlocks and stabbing people or he lied about the whole thing. Both seem to be plenty reason to discount him as a realistic candidate.
I think he's doing well simply because he appeals to the "none of the above" voters but with Trump now ready to let a few blows go in his direction it may be time for him to drop back to obscurity.
That article makes an important point though - I think like Brian Williams he's taken stories he's heard because he would like them to be his story. For him, the story of a violent youth finding god is appealing to his religious base ... so he tells it as his. It may have happened to someone, but I don't think it was Dr Carson.
His problem is that his life story is all people have to go on and it seems to disintegrate under any scrutiny and he is clearly lying about the "violent past / saved by god" narrative (watch the press conference, he constantly tries to shift the story back to the scholarship issue which probably has some foundation).
