Quote of the Day: Running the Government Is Hard

From Ben Carson, former neurosurgeon who is now Secretary of Housing and Urban Development:

There are more complexities here than in brain surgery.

Actually, Carson is wrong. Brain surgery is every bit as complex as running a gigantic government department. It’s just totally different, and expertise in one has nothing to do with ability in the other. You’d think someone smart enough to be a brain surgeon could figure that out.
