Anything that causes any sort of humiliation to Mike Huckabee, large or small, makes my heart sing.

I think it would be good to do some more research before we jump on the "Carson's an idiot" bandwagon.

I feature length research paper on his idiocy will suffice.

Then, jump on the bandwagon.

Again, his zany comments pale in comparison to his stance on abortion which makes him unelectable. I can't believe his base has such a goldfish memory that they can't remember what went down in 2012 when a few Republican politicians said they were against all abortions, no matter the circumstances. If Carson somehow made it onto the big stage, he would be loathed by women across the country and lose even some red states.

Why would this bother his base?

If it costs them the election, then so be it. I'd rather have someone be honest in their views and stick with it than say anything that will get them elected. I don't even consider voting for pro-choice candidates, never have never will. Some do the opposite.

They spelled grain wrong, it's not 'grand', bandwagon morons.

It doesn't bother his base, but the fact that it makes him unelectable should. If saying that abortions shouldn't happen in case of rape can lead to someone going from an easy win in a red state to losing by an extremely wide margin, then it sure as hell will play even worse in swing states.

The second he'd have wrapped up the nomination, the DNC and Clinton campaign will start airing ads showcasing his stance on abortion. Within hours, the election will basically be over. Hell, it would be smarter to just let Carson get all the way to the convention and be crowned the nominee before airing those ads, otherwise it would give time for the RNC to scramble and pick somebody else.

Well this is all true, but honestly they don't care. Carson is already unelectable, his base is so unbelievably detached from reality they don't care. If the above happened it would just give his base fuel to the fire, they could yell louder: "liberal media", "progressivism erodes the moral fabric", etc. They're willing to defend grain storing pyramids; reality is foreign to them.

Oh, I'm certainly with you, his base is pretty delusional. I mean, hell, Republicans in general currently think him and Trump have the best chance at beating Clinton. It doesn't matter how many Presidential elections they lose, they'll never be able to face reality.

It's the most important thing to me in the upcoming election, and I applaud him for getting every democratic candidate to start talking about it. From the Mayday campaign:

Quote:
Hey Ashley,
On Monday, Lawrence Lessig announced that he is no longer running in the Democratic primary for President of the United States. The DNC changed the rules about who would be allowed to debate after he had met their prior criteria. As Chris Hayes said, the DNC treatment of Lessig "has been manifestly preposterous. Exactly what harm would have been done to let him debate?"


They didn't let him into the debates, but he transformed the debate.



The week he announced, Hillary Clinton adopted a comprehensive, public-financing platform for every federal office. Senator Sanders shifted from talking solely about Citizens United, and included public financing far more frequently in his platform. And national media covered Lessig's heroic race.
Political races matter for themselves, and they matter for building a netroots movement.
We must keep fighting to elect true reformers.

I am so proud of his leadership. He is a true patriot, unwilling to pretend that democratic politics works today, but also unwilling to give up. He brings a passionate commitment to fixing the root problem in American politics.

Although Lawrence Lessig is out of the race, this fight is not over. Just last night, anti-corruption measures passed in California, Maine, Ohio, and Washington. These are HUGE victories for the movement!

About as much as people rethought their support of Trump after he said McCain isn't a war hero?
