The trouble with Ben Carson

bencarson20151113cover1800-x-2400By all accounts, Dr. Ben Carson is a fine human being and a dedicated and gifted pediatric neurosurgeon.

I think he richly deserves all the honors he has received for his philanthropy and civic work.

But he is no more fit to hold public office than I am to practice medicine.

His fault is not in his lack of knowledge, which could be remedied over time, but in his lack of knowledge of his lack of knowledge.
