24 Hours of Bad Polling Made a Devil of Sen. Hagan.
We’ve been told it’s !RACIST! to demand a travel ban on lights from countries that are suffering from the current Ebola epidemic in Western Africa. Streiff told us all about how Nate Silver Voxsplained* how ineffective a travel ban would be. The Progressives had given reality its marching orders and Kay Hagan sallied forth with robotic predictability to carry them out. The guidance from the CDC was wonderful according to Senator Shill.

For Hagan, who publicly encouraged Obama to “temporarily ban the travel of non-U.S. citizens from the affected countries,” it marked a shift from earlier this month when her Republican opponent, Thom Tillis, called for a travel ban but she didn’t join him.
This was only technically earlier this month. It could be better described as earlier this week. Or how about 24 hours after seeing a poll that indicated how brilliant 2/3 of America deemed …read more
