Despite a new wave of panic from cable news, talking heads and politicians surrounding the news of Dallas's second Ebola patient, Jon Stewart politely suggests that we all just calm down. Besides, Texas's strong stance against vaccinations is maybe...

The hysteria over ebola reminds me of the same outbreak of fear when AIDs was all we heard about. The news media takes the most sensational stnce possible and congress follows suit. If we hadn't had so many cuts in health costs under the Republicans, the NIH and the CDC would have been better organized.

Excellent item, Jon! Showing that Texas has - and America - had much more to fear from their own policies and refusal to be inoculated, leading to outbreaks of all sorts of epidemics, was very funny, though also very scary. The icing on the cake was granting Texas the border fence they've always wanted, but this time shielding the rest of the US off from Texas. That had me in stitches.

Ebola-Nation!!! Coming soon to a theatre near you!

Wait---does this mean I can't go out to see the movies anymore? Here I've been cooped up in my house for days with no food left, and was really looking forward to that popcorn.

Such a hilarious man who always manages to make his point with humor... All those who think the sky is falling should be forced to watch Jon nightly. I'm delighted to see someone put this into perspective and I'm also delighted at the very idea of putting a fence around Texas to protect the rest of us.

Yesterday, the Augusta Chronicle in bold type 3" tall: EBOLALANTA??? Apparently, having a hospital with ebola patients 200-300 miles away is not far enough away....

Seriously Ebola is nothing to joke around about even if it is not anything to panic about. People are going to die from this it is not funny.

"Congressman Sessions is carrying a dangerously mutated, sanity-resistant strain of fear that has now gone airborne"--actually, it's my belief that this strain of fear was mutated after 9/11 and Republicans have been trying to infect the rest of the world with it since then. With, I'm sad to say, some degree of success.

Thousands dying from easily preventable diseases. Thousands dying from genetic diseases. Thousands dying from starvation. Thousands dying from homelessness. Thousands dying from mental diseases. One person died of ebola. 'Nuff said!!

Sorry, Jamie, I think you're failing to make a critical distinction here.

Laughing at people contracting and dying from Ebola: very insensitive, crass, and inappropriate.

Ridiculing and laughing at ignorant xenophobes attempting to unduly propagate fear-mongering and undue paranoia: very much needed and wholly appropriate.

Noted. Thanks for posting, Carrie. I always sleep much better after watching The Daily Show (and Colbert). And, this just made my night!
