Obamacare caused Ebola? What caused anyone to be confused enough to vote for Ted Cruz?

According to a Ted Cruz staffer Nick Muzin, Obamacare somehow caused Ebola to come to the United States. Muzin later deleted his clueless tweet and claimed it was just a bad joke, but he will never live down the depth of his derp.

At some point Republicans will probably also say that Obamacare caused dinosaur extinction, Bubonic plague, Windows 7, the Irish potato famine, the sinking of Atlantis, ISIS, The Walking Dead zombies, and Donald Trump's hair.

Next on Fox News: We're all gonna die and it's Obama's fault!

Yes, Ebola is serious and we should do all we can to help the people who have the disease.

No, the Fox News freak-out doesn't make any sense.

To be fair, CNN is almost as bad on this issue. But Fox, as usual, sets the lowest bar.

Glenn Beck just pretended to smear feces on himself. That seems like an appropriate metaphor for his whole career.

Not so long ago, Glenn Beck was considered the leading voice of Tea Party Republican conservatives. Now he's widely considered a wacko whose ideas are so crazy they got him fired from Fox News. The strange thing is that he hasn't really changed. The difference is that reasonable people finally now see that he's just a huckster and an extremist--which just makes him a typical Tea Party Republican conservative.
