Troll level, MASTER: Elizabeth Warren’s challenger saddened she refused gift of a DNA test

Let’s just get this out of the way up front: this was just a cheap, shameless stunt by a political opponent to gain some publicity against a popular sitting senator and we kind of love it. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, an Indian-born American who is challenging Sen. Elizabeth Warren for her Senate seat in 2018, noted Sunday that the Senator had refused his birthday gift: a DNA test. (Editor’s note: We’ve blurred out Warren’s address.)

Reporter compares the Ebola quarantine to WWII internment camps

http://twitter.com/#!/laura_lrnzo/status/526458885003956224

Ron Fournier, reporter for National Journal, has earned our praise on these pages of late as a voice of reason in the ongoing national debate on Ebola, which is why this tweet of his took us by surprise:

http://twitter.com/#!/ron_fournier/status/526457661026746368

That’s right — The 21-day quarantine of aid worker Kaci Hickox, who just arrived in Newark, NJ after treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, is now the same as WWII internment camps.

Fournier’s readers blasted him for the analogy:

We agree. But Fournier didn’t back down:

And this is probably the most important response to highlight:

Yep. Illinois has a quarantine, too, as well as Connecticut. Via the New York Times:

On Saturday, in a sign of growing concern about the virus, Gov. Pat Quinn of Illinois, the home of O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, began a quarantine program similar to the one in place in New York and New Jersey. Connecticut, which enacted a similar policy on Oct. 7, has quarantined nine people who have so far showed no symptoms.

Got that, Ron? Connecticut’s Democratic governor has been quarantining Ebola aid workers since October 7 and nobody has said a thing. But Christie does it and all of a sudden it’s like an internment camp?

This Person Parked Illegally…And Now Knows What Instant Karma Feels Like

Karma always smells so sweet…unless it comes in the form of actual garbage.

One street sweeper in China decided to show an illegally parked driver that there are consequences for leaving your car where you’re not supposed to. CCTV footage shows the passive-aggressive worker surrounding the black vehicle with more than 42 full trash cans, giving the driver a taste of street justice.

I can only imagine what the expression on the driver’s face was when they discovered that their vehicle was right in the middle of a man-made dump.

But that’s not the only example of instant parking karma…this person got theirs in Portland, Maine, when they took up more than one spot at the store.
