Trump Aside, 5 Right-Wing Nutjobs This Week: Ben Carson Hints of a 'War on Women's Insides'

And Peggy Noonan met a Dominican person!

1. Words come out of Ben Carson’s mouth that appear to make no sense.

Given his history of bizarre utterances, it should not come as a surprise that Ben Carson gave a speech on the steps of the Arkansas Capitol in Little Rock on Thursday that made somewhere between little and no sense. He talked about troublemakers (apparently meaning Democrats) who keep saying Republicans are waging a war on women.

“They tell you that there’s a war on women,” said Carson, according to RawStory. “There is no war on women. There may be a war on what’s inside of women, but there is no war on women in this country.”

Whatever could he mean? What part of women’s insides is there a war on? Is he admitting that there is a war on women’s uteruses? How is that an acceptable thing? And how do you make laws about women’s uteruses that are separate from laws about women? Sometimes babies are inside women. Is he saying there is a war on babies? Why?

Carson managed not to make a hell of a lot of sense on other topics as well. It’s that free-ranging, free-associating mind of his. He talked about how in the good ol' days, immigrants worked 10-12 hours a day when there was no minimum wage, and apparently that was a good thing. And before that, he pointed out, “other immigrants came here involuntarily in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less.”

As if that too was a good thing. Slavery, just another fun plucky part of making America great.

“But they [slaves, he means] too had a dream that one day their great grandsons and great granddaughters might pursue freedom and prosperity in this land.”

That is just flabbergastingly batsh*t crazy! Does he realize that people can hear him when he is talking?

He also suggested that a good way to destroy this country would be to invite people here from other nations and give them free phones.

Small reminder here, this guy may not be Trump, but his poll numbers are rising.
