Now it's time for one of our regular features, the Clown Award, given for meritorious stupidity.
The Big Red Nose this week goes to Ben Carson, former brain surgeon and now candidate for GOPper nomination for president.
Ben Carson, the man who in March swore he would never talk about The Gay again because the of how the biased liberal press was so mean to him by quoting what he said, may have found another topic he will have to swear to avoid: the constitution.
On May 5 on the reactionary Newsmax TV, Carson was asked about the pending Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage and he said - and sorry Ben, but I'm quoting,
In other words, the president is free to ignore any Supreme Court decision he or she does not like. Because that's a "judicial law," not like you know, a real law or something. The fact that judicial review has been established legal practice in the US for 212 years is apparently irrelevant.
we have to understand how the Constitution works, the president is required to carry out the laws of the land, the laws of the land come from the legislative branch. So if the legislative branch creates a law or changes a law, the executive branch has a responsibly to carry it out. It doesn’t say they have the responsibility to carry out a judicial law.
It is fortunate that Carson has retired from his surgical practice: I don't think he should be allowed around sharp objects.
Ben Carson: clown.
