Erick Erickson—conscientious Christian, onetime CNN contributor, power-tweeter, and vital voice of 21st century conservatism—knows why the U.S. was caught unprepared for Ebola: government waste meant to benefit leftist homosexuals.
As TPM reported this morning, Erickson took a break from preparing for seminary school on Monday in order to inveigh on the latest health news and relate it to Our Broken Government Problem. Ostensibly, he was criticizing a Democratic group for this new ad linking GOP spending cuts to the Ebola scare, which is quite a silly emotional leap lacking several logical links:
At a time when more and more Americans, including millennials, are concluding government just doesn't work, [the ad] probably won't be effective. And Republicans can respond in kind.
The argument continued, but in his savvy, Erickson neatly summarized his poignant contribution to policy discourse in the post's headline: "Fat Lesbians Got All the Ebola Dollars, But Blame the GOP."
Erick Erickson: He's what you get if you take an influential political evangelical, boil him in a pot, skim off the tallow, mix it with a little dog pee, and apply it to your front door in the form of a giant "X" in hopes that human kindness will see it and pass your house over. And the amazing thing is: It will.
