Down in Texas the Democrats have a soon to be former candidate for Governor saying her disabled opponent is an enemy of disabled people and that he might want to ban mixed marriages in spite of the fact that his wife is Hispanic.

If that’s not nutty enough, in N.C., some Kay Hagan supporters are going the super-predictable routh:

That’s really all they’ve ever got. Desperate Dems make one trick ponies look multi-talented.

A few days ago a former NIH head said this about the reason there is no Ebola vaccine:

Government officials and “researchers” blaming a lack of funding for the existence of a problem is like dogs saying “if only I could like my balls more all the problems would go away!”

About that:

Wow, THAT guy’s not going to be invited to many inside-the-Beltway cocktail parties. I’m sure an Obama administration official is en route to Bethesda as we speak to smack him upside the head with the “correct” narrative.

Or, he’ll be threatened with a return to the private sector — a government researcher’s worst nightmare.

Now that Ebola is in the U.S., Democrats with no shame are blaming GOP “funding cuts.” That claim is not only total BS, but at a glance it appears the NIH has been over-funded if anything.

The Free Beacon uncovered nearly $40 million worth of NIH expenditures of dubious societal value. Some examples:

For instance, the agency has spent $2,873,440 trying to figure out why lesbians are obese, and $466,642 on why fat girls have a tough time getting dates. Another $2,075,611 was spent encouraging old people to join choirs.

Millions have gone to “text message interventions,” including a study where researchers sent texts to drunks at the bar to try to get them to stop drinking. The project received an additional grant this year, for a total of $674,590.

The NIH is also texting older African Americans with HIV ($372,460), HIV and drug users in rural areas ($693,000), HIV smokers ($763,519), pregnant smokers ($380,145), teen moms ($243,839), and meth addicts ($360,113). Text message interventions to try to get obese people to lose weight have cost $2,707,067.

The NIH’s research on obesity has led to spending $2,101,064 on wearable insoles and buttons that can track a person’s weight, and $374,670 to put on fruit and vegetable puppet shows for preschoolers.

A restaurant intervention to develop new children’s menus cost $275,227, and the NIH spent $430,608 for mother-daughter dancing outreach to fight obesity.

Sexual minorities have received a substantial amount from the NIH. The agency has now spent $105,066 following 16 schizophrenic LGBT Canadians around Toronto for a study on their community experiences.

The total for a project on why gay men get syphilis in Peru is now $692,697 after receiving additional $228,425 this year. The NIH is also concerned about postpartum depression in “invisible sexual minority women,” with a study that has cost $718,770.

Millions went to develop “origami condoms,” in male, female, and anal versions. The inventor Danny Resnic, who received $2,466,482 from the NIH, has been accused of massive fraud for using grant money for full-body plastic surgery in Costa Rica and parties at the Playboy mansion.

How transwomen use Facebook is the subject of another NIH study worth $194,788.

Looks like the NIH has been wonderful stewards of tax dollars so far, so why not blame Republicans for failing to double their budget?

If you think Ebola is hard to get rid of now, wait until it’s heavily “funded.”

Considering ISIS, Ebola and all sorts of other major problems all Dems are talking about right now is how awesome this is (seriously, they’re wetting themselves over it), the White House knows exactly what kind of shiny objects distract their base:

You make the call, America… do we like our First Lady’s doing stuff like this?

Suggested GOP response: “Turnip at the polls next month to get Democrats out of office!”

Everybody involved in this needs to be institutionalized for their own (but mostly OUR) protection:

“cc: Obama haters”? They spelled “team of psychiatrists” wrong.

Get Nurse Ratched, because these people need a double-dose Zyprexa IV stat!

A second person has tested positive for Ebola in Dallas. The new case had been providing care for the Liberian man who died from the virus. The CDC says the latest person to contract Ebola had worn a gown, gloves, mask and shield (but don’t worry, it’s still totally hard to catch).

President Obama’s plan of action remains simple: Stay the course:

But that was only after reporters were allowed to take pictures of Obama on the phone:

The photo op was put together so hastily Obama’s people forgot to put anything remotely resembling work on his desk.

Update:

Why isn’t there an Ebola vaccine? Well, lack of funding of course!

Barack Obama went to Harvard, and more Obama administration officials graduated from Harvard than any other school in the nation. Oh, and of course Elizabeth Warren was a professor at Harvard.

Given that lead-in, this is hardly surprising — meet the country’s future leadership if voters don’t wake up:

Not to dump on Harvard specifically. Ivy League schools in general are Petri dishes for leftists that tend to work their way into high powered government gigs (i.e. John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Tom Perez, et al). I’m sorry, did I say government? I meant “public service” — said as sarcastically as possible.

THIS ought to make things better:

Who gets pegged a “racist” first? The hospital? The mayor?

The control tower at DFW will now try to make sure Jackson’s outgoing plane doesn’t collide with Al Sharpton’s incoming plane.

Every time I think I can no longer be surprised, the Obama administration finds a new way to amaze:

Today, an official from Washington D.C. flew in to Oklahoma to present a special thank you to the Muslim congregation.

And while part of the Obama administration is apologizing to the Oklahoma Muslim community after an Islam convert cut off the head of a woman he worked with, another part of the Obama administration is apologizing to UAE and Turkey. Apologies all around! Well, except to the people who have been getting their heads cut off.

Here’s a person interviewed who says he attended the same mosque as Alton Nolen, who has been charged with the Moore, Oklahoma beheading. This is what earns high praise and a hearty “thank you” from this administration:

Well, nobody can say we weren’t warned:
