GOP presidential candidate and literal 24/7 sleepwalking man Ben Carson really doesn't want Syrian refugees to be allowed in the United States.

Unfortunately, he can't even draw a map of the country he wants to deny them access to (and be leader of).

His campaign tweeted out a message of support for the dozens of governors who have expressed concern over allowing Syrian refugees into the country following the terrorist attacks in Paris.

From The Washington Post:

As you can see, in Carson's map the states of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine are moved northeast by about 150 miles or so. Vermont and New York now have hundreds of miles of new beachfront property. Massachusetts shares a border with Canada. Maine straddles what is now the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

Also, if you look closely at the mid-Atlantic area, you'll see that Virginia's portion of the Delmarva Peninsula is colored red to match Maryland, rather than gray with the rest of Virginia.

Nice job, Ben!

Deez Nuts is hot on the heels of Donald Trump's lead in North Carolina polls.

Well, it looks like Donald Trump has a new rival for the votes of North Carolinians.

Public Policy Polling has discovered some rising approval numbers for a new Independent candidate — Deez Nuts of Wallingford, Iowa.

Finally another declared independent candidate, Deez Nuts, polls at 9% in North Carolina to go along with his 8% in Minnesota and 7% in Iowa in our recent polling. Trump leads Clinton 40/38 when he's in the mix.

This caught the eye of the campaign media and the high numbers, which are above Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee and Scott Walker for the state, have only grown the attention towards his campaign.

So, yeah.

But it doesn't end there.

Deez Nuts, who is apparently a 15-year-old sophomore in high school named Brady Olson has actually set up a campaign website for himself, which includes a detailed platform.

Surprisingly, the platform's stances seem sincere and well-considered. Deez Nuts has a more conservative view of immigration reform although he believe in choice as far as abortion rights.

He also lays out a surprisingly detailed stance on territorial voting rights:

I support giving citizens in our American territories voting rights. I also support giving American Samoan citizens automatic US citizenship. I would give Puerto Rico 3 electoral votes since Puerto Rico is bigger than many states. Guam, the US Virgin Islands, and the Northern Marianas all get 2 since they are smaller, but still incorporated territories. Finally, American Samoa would only get 1 since it is still considered an "unincorporated" territory. This would bring the total of electoral votes from 538 to 548.

We all know who should be the newcomer's campaign manager.

Would you vote for him?

Did you miss the GOP debate last week? Would you rather watch children reenact it? Well, Funny or Die has you covered.

Who knows where they found these disgustingly adorable children with their little faces acting so expressively perfect, but they really put their tiny hearts into inhabiting the full spirit of the Republican primary debate.

Look at Donald Trump here:

If the kid thing isn't doing it for you, but you still want to experience the debate other than watch it, Patton Oswalt live-tweeted it for you.

If that's still not your thing, just watch Donald Trump dance for a bit.

Planned Parenthood has had it tough lately. First, some undercover films were released showing some alleged back door selling of fetal tissue, then calling for defunding the organization became a political necessity for candidates seeking the GOP presidential nomination.

The videos, which many see as aggressively edited, were captured by an undercover sting operation by the Center for Medical Progress. They swiftly led to Republicans in the Senate bringing a vote to defund the organization Aug. 3. It failed to pass.

Then, in the crowded, 17-person GOP primary field, the topic of defunding Planned Parenthood in wake of the tapes became something of a bingo free space in currying support from pro-life voters. Candidate Gov. Bobby Jindal even went so far as to approve an executive order to withdraw from the state's contract in funding Louisiana's two Planned Parenthood clinics.

Well, things are about to get even worse with this video, which showcased the true experience had by millions of women who reach out for the provider for help and guidance with reproductive health.

Scathing is one word for it.

Maybe now, the assistance that Planned Parenthood gives can be rightly scrutinized.

Andy Borowitz puts it best: "There's something wrong with our politics if we can't even agree about rape anymore."

Meanwhile, Tina Fey says she will "lose my mind" if she is forced to listen to "one more gray-faced man with a $2 dollar haircut explain to me what rape is."
