    Wow, these people really are messed up, joking that Obama would have no problem bowling at the same NY bowling alley the Ebola patient visited. This is supposed to be funny? And I really don't get this attitude of bragging about how far you will go to risk catching Ebola.

    So let me get this straight, Dems are perceived as being the party that is more willing to reach across the aisle, care more about “people like me,” have more ethics, and do a better job of running government and our healthcare system. I can totally understand why those polled would say that. All you have to do is look at the last 6+ years for proof. What these results tell me is that this poll was significantly skewed to the lower middle class, probably democrats, women, and young. From the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press….say no more.

    File this one under “the death of right and wrong”: Breaking Bad action figures, complete with fake crystal meth and a stash of cash. The packaging says that it is intended for those over 15, but they are selling them on Toys 'R Us, alongside children's toys.
