Confirmed: Ben Carson has simply spent too much time snorting anesthesia. That is the only explanation for the nonsense he spews into right-wing media at every turn.

Today's snort of the day comes to you via Neil Cavuto, who asked Carson what he thought about the Treasury's decision to toss Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill and replace his image with Harriet Tubman.

After erroneously referring to Jackson as a "great Secretary," Carson sang his praises as the only President to balance the Federal budget. Actually, he didn't balance the budget. He paid off the Federal debt, just before the economy spiraled into a depression. But hey, don't let facts get in the way there, Ben.

Turning to Harriet Tubman, Carson said, "I love Harriet Tubman, but we can find another way to honor her. Maybe a two-dollar bill."

Just like a Republican man. Always has to devalue the woman whenever possible.
