First out the Gate Dr. Carson

Ben Carson is inching closer to running for the Presidency.  That’s why FOX News is cutting ties with the noted surgeon and Obamacare hater.  In 2011 FOX did the same thing with Santorum and Gingrich.  I wonder what the movie mogul and the former Speaker think of Dr. Carson’s chances?

Carson doesn’t have a chance in hell of getting the nomination but he will make the debates much more interesting.  You can already pencil “I am not a career politician” or “if you did that way in the medical profession” in for Carson’s lines in the GOP debate drinking game.

How much traction Carson gets will tell us how serious the GOP is in 2016.  In 2011-12 party activists rallied around no-shot candidates like Herman Cain and Michelle Bachmann as a sign of their anger.  Will the same happen this time or will the desire to win push activists toward more conventional candidates like Chris Christie or Bobby Jindal?
