In other news, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has gone full race-baiter in Nebraska, linking state Senator Brad Ashford (D) to a tattooed killer because Ashford supports laws that allow prisoners to get out early for good behavior. These are unrelated things but ooga booga!
Meanwhile, President Obama has appointed Ron Klain, a former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden, as the Ebola Czar who will oversee the response to the virus. And a few minutes after he made the appointment, conservatives began attacking him after spending the whole week calling for a Czar. Because of course.
McCain and others called for Ebola czar. Now, @SenTedCruz says: “We don't need another so-called 'czar'; we need presidential leadership."
