    Dr. Ben Carson, the right wing physician that was recently hired by Fox News, claimed on Friday that Obamacare is the "worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery." Dr. Carson is known for his countless incendiary comments about President Obama, but comparing a law guaranteeing healthcare for millions of citizens to forced servitude is below the pale and goes to show that Republicans will do and say anything in order to continue their fifteen seconds of fame.

    Dr. Carson is a favorite of the right for one reason and one reason only. The right sees him as an intellectual counterweight to our first African American president and he relishes in that comparison, but comments like that prove who Dr. Carson really is, which is just another far right wing person that is far better at sound bites and incendiary comments. Maybe that was his plan all along because he will fit in perfectly with his new employer.

    What does everyone think of Dr. Carson? Will comments like his most recent ones hurt him or help him as he begins his employment at Fox News?
