The Wall Street Journal...
...that bastion of Liberal ideas (NOT) called out Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson Thursday for wrongly claiming the Founding Fathers "had no elected office experience." In a Facebook post late Wednesday, Carson wrote: "Every signer of the Declaration of Independence had no elected office experience...What they had was a deep belief that freedom is a gift from God."
The Journal pointed out the historical inaccuracy Thursday. Thomas Jefferson, Sam Adams, John Hancock and many other signer of the Declaration of Independence all held elected seats in colonial assemblies, Benjamin Carp, an associate history professor at Brooklyn College, told the paper.
Another example of Kindly Dr. Carson not knowing what the hell he's talking about.
But that doesn't matter to his fans because he's a Republican Blah! and that means they're not racist!
