Conservative intellectual thought leader George Will made an ass of himself on Fox News Sunday this week, claiming "Some doctors say Ebola can be transmitted through the air by 'a sneeze or some cough.'" The alleged source of that "information," the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, was quick to say, "Nuh-uh, George you are very very WRONG, you dip."
Excuse me, &quot;penis pills, fracking, oil drilling and ROGAINE.&quot;
If it were any tighter his head would pop off.
Bullets could have Ebola on them. So you <i>definitely</i> want to fire first.
I am trying to remember the last time that George Will was &quot;reasonable.&quot; Maybe back in the late &#039;80s.
George Will gets taken seriously as an Intellectual of the Right because he can put a sentence together and gets his left shoe on his left foot the first time every morning.
Also because Baaaaaaaaaaaaaasebaaaaaalllllllllllllll
&quot;I never thought it could happen to me. I was at a party, a little bored, when this guy sidled up to me and...&quot;
Iffen I see someone bleeding. vomiting and having diarrhea everywhere at a cocktail party I doubt I will be getting close enough to kiss them to catch the Ebola and that makes fucking pretty much out of the question
I hear that George Will causes the greatest damage when he&#039;s spewing on the topic of baseball. Please wear a respirator if you expect to be within listening range.
I do NOT ever want to go to a George Will party.
To be honest, though, it IS the appropriate reaction to listening to George Effing Will.
You know what? This is beyond nuts - people are demanding schools be closed if one student <em>might</em> have had contact with someone who <em>might</em> have been on the same plane as a potential Ebola patient. A woman who runs a bridal shop in Ohio closed her shop to be decontaminated (even though the health department told her it wasn&#039;t necessary) because the &quot;Ebola nurse&quot; was there to be fitted for a dress, and people are calling worried that they may be infected because the owner may have used <em>the same tape measure</em> on them as on her. There are people in full-blown freak-out, and <b>THIS DOES NOT HELP, GEORGE WILL!</b>
Oh, the NAFTA Superhighway! What times we had back in the day. Why, here is <a href="http:\/\/wonkette.com\/329716\/buy-your-ameros-today" target="_blank">Our Wonkette</a> opining on it. BONUS!!!! Ameros!
Will has always been just two steps behind the crazy, because he knows his readership loathes intellectuals, yet he needs them. So when most of your readers believe ACORN was running the country and making Wall St. look like amateurs, you have to come up with <i>something</i> stupid.
It&#039;s what you put your Esoupa in.
From what I have seen on line, a lot of Sabermetrics boils down to &quot;My guy is better than your guy, and I&#039;m going to find an obscure statistic to prove it&quot;.
