Rush Limbaugh blasted Gov. Chris Christie for letting up on the Ebola quarantining of nurse Kaci Hickox, and allowing her to serve her time in Maine.
Rush Limbaugh Attacks: 'We Need To Quarantine Chris Christie'

When the Ebola virus was found in Texas, I asked where Gov. Rick Perry was hiding since he was mum on the issue except when asked to attack Obama. Hysterically, he was out of the country and visiting Europe. Anyway, a couple of east coast rubes (Gov's Andrew Cuomo and Chris Christie) decided to get into the fray because they crave attention and want to run for president and as usual with rubes, they took advice from the reactionaries of the Tea Party and decided to quarantine all comers for 21 days. This caused nurse Kaci Hickox to speak out against their draconian measures.

Kaci Hickox, a nurse placed under mandatory quarantine in New Jersey criticized the "knee-jerk reaction by politicians" to Ebola which she called "poorly planned" and "preposterous."

Gov. Christie stashed her in a tent prison. No wonder she wanted out.

Soon after, Christie quickly back pedaled and let Kaci Hickox go Maine to serve her quarantine instead.

Cut to Rush Limbaugh, who is not happy with El Bridgegate:

Specifically, Limbaugh is upset that Christie allowed nurse Kaci Hickox, who wasn't showing any symptoms of the Ebola virus, to be transferred Monday to her home state of Maine to serve out the rest of her quarantine. Limbaugh likened the move to Christie's post-Hurricane Sandyembrace of President Barack Obama.

"This is the second election in a row, one week prior to an election, the governor of New Jersey ends up, well I don’t know -- arm and arm, hand and hand, in bed with, I don’t know how to characterize it -- but responding to Obama’s demands," Limbaugh said Monday on his radio show.

"I’m sorry, I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but this -- I really think the Republicans ought to make sure that Governor Christie gets quarantined," he continued. "From from now on, once we get to a week before an election, we need to find a way here -- he's in the middle here again, taking center stage of another national crisis, with another Obama hug moment and Gov. [Andrew] Cuomo doing the same thing. But that kind of makes sense because Gov. Cuomo and Obama are in the same party.”
