Fox Business News and a Wall Street Journal announced Thursday a lineup for subsequent week’s debate, and usually 8 possibilities will seem in #GOPDebate 4.0’s prime time slot: Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Jeb(!) Bush, Carly Fiorina, John Kasich and Rand Paul. Left out in a cold/happy hour debate: Chris Christie (supposedly one of a rising stars from 3.0), Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum. Wishing they could simply be there: Lindsey Graham and George Pataki.

Back in a day, Ben Carson was an indignant immature male disposed to assault who could have left to West Point on a full grant if he wanted to. Or was he? That’s all entrance into doubt this week. Two published accounts have unknown people saying they have no memories of Carson’s aroused episodes. On this, Carson (sort of) defends himself: “If we select not to trust it, if it doesn’t fit a account that we want, that’s fine.” But another partial of his story is simply not true; Politico suggested on Friday that Carson did not indeed get a grant to West PointSome contend that this is adequate to disintegrate a front-runner
