Ben Carson Hires The Church Lady As His Speechwriter For The RNC

Saul Alinsky, and Clinton and Lucifer... oh my!! Old Stabby Ben went off script and off the rails at the RNC this Tuesday.
Views:

It seems someone went just slightly off script this Tuesday at the Republican National Convention. Dr. Ben Carson, or as we like to call him around here, Stabby Ben, basically accused Hillary Clinton of being in league with the devil during his speech, and as Rachel Maddow noted right after he wrapped things up, there was no mention of either Saul Alinsky or Lucifer in his prepared remarks.

Here's more from Vanity Fair: Ben Carson Goes Rogue, Links Hillary Clinton to Lucifer:

Forget Benghazi. This conspiracy goes all the way to the bottom.

Dr. Ben Carson, the retired neurosurgeon-turned-presidential candidate-turned-perpetually confused Trump surrogate, returned to the political arena Tuesday night with a bizarre six-minute speech at the Republican National Convention in which he first railed against the dangers of political correctness, and then, as if to prove his point, linked Hillary Clinton to Lucifer himself.

“Now, one of the things that I have learned about Hillary Clinton is that one of her heroes, her mentors was Saul Alinsky,” said Carson, departing from his prepared remarks that were sent to the press ahead of time. “And her senior thesis was about Saul Alinsky. This was someone she greatly admired. And let me tell you something about Saul Alinsky. So he wrote a book called Rules for Radicals. It acknowledges Lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom.”

Carson, a prominent figure in the evangelical community, went on: “Now think about that,” he said. “This is our nation where our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, talks about certain inalienable rights that come from our creator; a nation where our Pledge of Allegiance says we are one nation under God. This is a nation where every coin in our pockets and every bill in our wallet says ‘In God We Trust.’ So are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges Lucifer?”

I'd say Eric Kleefeld summed this up perfectly:
