‘We got this guys’: Wow, don’t you feel better after WH’s Ebola presser? [photos]

http://twitter.com/#!/markknoller/status/518142177420259328

This afternoon, officials held a press conference on Ebola at the White House. It was about as reassuring as you’d expect from any White House presser. Which is to say, not really very reassuring at all:

US health care infrastructure "well-equipped to stop Ebola in its tracks," says Dr. Anthony Fauci of NIH. pic.twitter.com/ZchaGV3xKc

He must be referring to that “robust government-sponsored health care system” ThinkProgress was so excited about.

Right now, officials say screening for Ebola patients most effective in the source countries in West Africa, than on arrival in US.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) October 3, 2014

Fauci says US has "well-established" facilities to handle and respond to cases of Ebola. "Our structure would preclude an outbreak."

Monaco tells @MajorCBS that screening air travelers in West Africa are effective in stopping Ebola passengers from leaving.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) October 3, 2014

Fauci goes even further: says US health care system “would make it extraordinarily unlikely that we would have an outbreak" in the US.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) October 3, 2014

So, who feels better now?

The US has the ability to contain Ebola, but can't build a website that doesn't crash. Gotcha.

— Matthew (@Matthops82) October 3, 2014

Sorry if I don't have faith in the govt to contain ebola. Maybe the pessimism stems from how much they screw everything else up. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

— Matthew (@Matthops82) October 3, 2014

ISIS is a JV squad. You can keep your plan if you like it. Detroit is thriving. We should totes believe that govt has ebola under control.

Is Al Sharpton going to help choose the next Attorney General?

http://twitter.com/#!/JaneESGardner/status/515202820585558016

On the heels of Eric Holder’s resignation as Attorney General, Al Sharpton claims to be getting involved in helping choose Holder’s successor:

“We are engaged in immediate conversations with the White House on deliberations over a successor whom we hope will continue in the general direction of Attorney General Holder,” Sharpton said in a statement.

Disturbing, but completely believable.

Al Sharpton says he is helping the White House select the new attorney general. First on Al Sharpton's list? Al Sharpton.

Without a doubt!

Too much to hope for here:

@DLoesch I was hoping that was a @voxdotcom story. Then we would know it couldn't be true.

Instapundit’s suggestion for new Redskins name and logo is ‘brilliant’

http://twitter.com/#!/mcewenwarrior79/status/480898689485901825

The debate about possibly changing the name of the Washington Redskins is ongoing, and some are even suggesting what the name should be changed to:

http://twitter.com/#!/USNewsOpinion/status/480896830558195712

The Washington Federalists? Come on, we can do better than that!

Given Harry Reid’s obsessive interest in the name change subject combined with delicious mockery of his past lies about Romney’s taxes, a better idea was proposed by Instapundit Glenn Reynolds:

Perfect!

Sarah Palin set to host new outdoors show; Haters hope she gets shot

Sarah Palin will soon be starring in her own outdoors show, “Amazing America,” on the Sportsman Channel:

Maine judge grants temporary order restricting movements of Kaci Hickox

http://twitter.com/#!/AaronKatersky/status/528179542527987714

Kaci Hickox has said she will go to court to “fight for my freedom,” and the state of Maine went to court seeking an order restricting the movements of Hickox. The request was partially granted:

A judge in Augusta has told her she must agree to active monitoring, coordinate her travel with health authorities, not be present in public places, not leave Fort Kent and stay at least 3 feet from anyone when she does go out.

This is short of the blood test the governor had mentioned and short of mandated quarantine, but there will be some sort of agreement or more substantive order later today.

Hickox has been refusing Maine quarantine rules since arriving there from New Jersey where she did the same.
