There is an air of un-reality and denial these days coming out of Washington DC and the media pundits that resembles the 'Mad hatter's Tea Party' of Alice in Wonderland. Our National finances are on the brink of fiscal collapse because of absolutely corrupt and irresponsible government over-spending of tax payer dollars, and our Chief Executive is talking about 'wind farms' and political columnists are writing about ancient American history. It's called living in the Land of Da Nile.

In an earlier era, Dr. Benjamin Carson's speech before the National Prayer Breakfast last week would have been a really big deal rather than mere fodder for a brief squall on Twitter and cable news.

Born in crushing poverty to an illiterate single mother dedicated to seeing her children succeed, Carson became the head of the department of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins medical institutions when he was 33. He's been a black celebrity role model ever since.

Even if you didn't like the substance of what Carson had to say at the breakfast, his speech made for great political theater....
