Does anyone remember that whacko Neurosurgeon who had a brief moment in the spotlight while running for president before quickly sinking in the polls when everyone discovered that neurosurgeons aren’t really known for their knowledge of foreign policy?

“Our country is on the precipice, and it’s about to go over the edge.”

Apparently, reducing the number of federal employees and committees which are somehow destroying the future for the next generation.

We sure missed you, Ben.
