Ben Carson, who for some reason believes himself to still be running for president, made what I have to assume was an accidentally astute observation about the GOP presidential race. In Irving, Texas on Saturday he said:
We’re just trying to entertain people. It reminds me so much of ancient Rome — everyone wants to go to the Coliseum and somebody stabs someone with a sword and they go, ‘Yeah, this is great.’ And a tiger tears somebody’s head off, and they go, ‘Ah, this is wonderful.’ And nobody is paying attention to the crumbling society around them.
Well, yeah! That is what it’s like! Huh.
