Life may be like a bowl of cherries, but the Supreme Court nomination is apparently more like a fruit salad.

For a neurosurgeon, Ben Carson proved himself to be quite a fruitcake at Thursday night’s Republican debate. When asked how he would go about nominating a Supreme Court replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia, Carson gave a muddled and vague answer that puzzled viewers:

"As president, I would go through and I would look at what a person's life has been," the White House hopeful said at the CNN Republican debate in Houston. "What have they done in the past, what kind of judgments have they made? What kind of associations do they have? That will tell you a lot more than an interview will tell you. The fruit salad of their life is what I will look at."

That got everyone (mainly the Internet) wondering what the “fruit salad of their life” could possibly mean.

Judging by the polls, it looks like in the fruit salad of life Dr. Ben Carson may be the sour grapes.
