For a man who claims he has a religious calling and has been accepted into a seminary, Erick Erickson sure sounds like a typical evangelical hater after blaming the lack of Ebola funding not on federal budget cuts, but studies about fat lesbians! He's angry because ads are popping up against Mitch McConnell that use a GOP style of attack. And when he gets angry, the gays get the brunt of it.

Fat Lesbians Got All the Ebola Dollars, But Blame the GOP

Democrats have rushed out of the gate with an attack ad against Republicans claiming if only we had spent more money, we would be able to solve the Ebola situation.

It’s a defensive ad that reeks of desperation. At a time when more and more Americans, including millennials, are concluding government just doesn’t work, it probably won’t be effective. And Republicans can respond in kind.

For example, instead of studying Ebola, the National Institutes of Health were studying the propensity of lesbians to be fat.

Then there was the money for a study on wives who calm down quickly.

And the Centers for Disease Control spent its budget on gun violence studies on order of the President as part of his agenda to curtail the second amendment.

The CDC also spent its money to survey what bus riders thought of HIV videos.

Hey, and let’s not forget all the money the CDC spent to convince people to stop smoking and now we need tobacco to manufacture the drug to fight Ebola. Classic.

Hey Erick, how many Americans have died from Ebola every year in America for the last twenty years? (Any victim is one too many) And how many Americans die every year from smoking? But to EE, trying to save hundreds of thousands of lives by putting out anti-smoking ads is a waste of time because a new method to fight Ebola uses tobacco plants.

As if we couldn't grow tobacco plants without millions of Americans dying from cancer. That's his logic. Classic!

Why do so many of the religious right constantly hate on so many things? They only have compassion for themselves and in his case, biblical studies. it sounds like he could follow in televangelist Ernest Angley's footsteps.
