UPDATE: Carson's camp now says that POLITICO itself fabricated Dr. Carson's "admission," and that they misinterpreted the campaign's quote on the subject, leading to a massively inaccurate story. It seems like a mountain out of a molehill. Did he fudge and misremember a few things in a memoir? Maybe. But it really doesn't have much of an impact on his long-term success or qualifications to be President. I mean, it's not like admitted to doing cocaine in his autobiography or anything.
Frankly, this might be the best thing that could have happened to Dr. Carson. After a week of weird sound bites, the story surrounding him is an attack by the media, something conservative candidates should be able to capitalize on and thrive from.
