Travel Ban Cowards

Just a brief comment on those Republican cowards who are spending their time demanding that Obama ignore the recommendations of the experts and impose a "travel ban" on people who have been to West Africa.

There are no direct flights between West Africa and the United States.  That means, for anyone to get here on an airplane from West Africa, they would have to fly through another country.  If we stopped them from the last leg of their flight here, all we would be doing is dumping the problem on someone else, and demonstrating to the world once again that that the governing principle of American life is "I've got mine- screw you."

It not only makes no sense; it constitutes a moral outrage.  Or in other words, standard Republican policy.
