Did you learn nothing from Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain? One of the stars of CPAC, Ben Carson, ruffled feathers this week when he called white liberals “the most racist people out there.” Carson, a neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins, became a conservative superstar after attacking Obamacare at CPAC last month. The African-American conservative appeared on Mark Levin’s radio show Monday to discuss the “left-wing media” attack he’s received after linking homosexuality and bestiality. Although Carson slammed MSNBC hosts as “phony reporters,” he says he’ll continue to appear on their networks, in order to keep “speaking the truth.” Hint: if you want the media to be your friend, don’t insult them.
