Sweet Dreams, Dr. Carson

Close your eyes, only for a moment.

New GOP presidential front-runner Ben Carson is, in case you haven’t heard, a very successful neurosurgeon. He’s also preternaturally calm. So calm, it appears, that even the sound of his own voice has the ability to make his eyelids heavy. What we’re saying is that he closes his eyes while speaking in public. Like, a lot.

In tribute, the video above showcases the soothing tenor of the good doctor’s hushed political diatribes, backed fittingly by one of rock ’n’ roll’s all-time great bands (just kidding, it’s Kansas). Close your eyes, Dr. Carson, only for a moment.
