Poor Ben Carson. He is, at this point, in the words of the presidential candidate who vanquished him, a loser. He can spend the rest of his life fleecing the speaking circuit and writing books about angels, but, like sticks and stones, words can hurt him.

What’s this tweet about? Maybe he realizes his slow, church-y ways will only end up being exploited for a lifetime by the Republican establishment he sought to unseat. Maybe someone made fun of his tithing-as-tax plan. Or maybe we were all just too mean to Gentle Ben.

You are rubber, Ben. They are glue.
