    It still blows my mind this guy was a doctor and they actually let him perform surgery. I wouldn't let him operate on a ****ing baked potato.

    As a supporter of third parties and many local independents that have zero chance of winning office, I have to say that there are many reasons for running for office that have nothing to do with actually winning. For example getting name recognition, putting the party name out there, or simply getting your message across.

    In fact a lot of people think that Trump himself was doing exactly that initially (running with no intention to win). I'm not sure what to think about that.

    Carson is a nice guy with good values and a big heart, but throughout the primary I never saw him as presidential material. I think he'd make an excellent Surgeon General though.
