Ben Carson: Presidential Primary Only In The 'First Inning'

Ben Carson leaves a delusional Facebook message to his rubes.
Ben Carson: Presidential Primary Only In The 'First Inning'

I know Ben Carson's campaign has turned into one big grift, but this Facebook post by his communications director is very delusional.

With only three states casting votes for the Republican presidential nomination, Dr. Ben Carson stands as one of only five candidates remaining of the original 17, and received as many delegates in South Carolina as all other candidates but the winner. Dr. Carson is humbled by the support and donations from hundreds of thousands across the country who look to him as their voice for change in a system that has left “We the People” behind. His consistent message of faith, integrity and common sense solutions has resonated with the people; he continues to be viewed more favorably than any other candidate and routinely polls as the most honest and sincere person in the race. And a poll out today confirmed he would beat Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head race.

"Thank you to my many supporters and volunteers in South Carolina and around the country,” said Dr. Carson. “While professional politicians have long written off our efforts to return the government to the people, we remain undaunted. We’ve barely finished the first inning, and there’s a lot of game left. I look forward to carrying on to the Nevada caucuses, sharing my message to “Heal, Inspire, and Revive” this great nation. As more Americans have their say, they will see the true strength of our movement."

- Larry Ross, Communications Director

No, Dr. Carson, there is not a lot of time left. Your candidacy has been over for a while now. For you it's not the first inning, but the bottom of the ninth and you're down seventeen runs and facing a well rested, Mariano Rivera.
