In case you missed it last night, Saturday Night Live ripped on Dr. Ben Carson for his recent homophobic comments during the “Weekend Update” segment… and kept going, joke after joke…

Third joke FTW. (Though I don’t know why they stopped so soon…)

Keep talking, Dr. Carson. Like Sarah Palin, all anybody has to do is quote you verbatim to make you look bad.

***Update***: I should’ve mentioned that Carson apologized for his comments a few days ago:

He backtracked in a statement afterward, saying he “realized that my choice of language does not reflect fully my heart on gay issues.”

“I do not pretend to know how every individual came to their sexual orientation. I regret that my words to express that concept were hurtful and divisive. For that I apologize unreservedly to all that were offended,” he added.

That said, he thinks the jury is still out on whether or not people are born gay. He also said he wouldn’t let the “liberal media” ask him about gay rights.

Because the problem is with the questions and not his responses…
