Taking bets …

Posted by: ST on May 31, 2007 at 5:42 pm

Just how long will it be before some far leftie blames personal injury lawyer Andrew Speaker’ssuper TB” on GWB?

Place your bets here! ;)

After reading about how Speaker’s new father-in-law is a leading TB researcher at the CDC, guest poster phin at Confederate Yankee quips:

I’ve heard about fathers being overprotective of their daughters and all, but this guy has taken it to a new level.

Overheard in the halls of the CDC Atlanta Office just moments ago: What do you call a personal injury lawyer with a rare and dangerous form of tuberculosis? A good start.


Speaker, by the way, is under federal quarantine now. The last federal quarantine was in 1963.

As a side note, Speaker was told not to fly, but did so anyway. Furthermore, his name was on a “no-fly” list so as to keep the disease being carried across the border, but he managed to make it through customs and drive across the border.

What border did he cross?


I wrote last week about Canada’s loosely guarded borders in this post about halfway down.

Update: On a related note, check out just what the ACLU is up to regarding the alleged ‘violation’ of Speaker’s ‘civil rights.’ As usual, we can count on the ACLU to be on the wrong side of the issue! Oh, and while you’re at the Stop The ACLU blog, make sure to click the “email” button and welcome back Jay from his tour of duty in Iraq. Good to have you back, buddy, and thanks for your service! :)

    You missed the big one. How in the world did this guy get a phone call from the CDC in Rome, if he was not suppose to fly? Ping. His father-in-law is directly involved… all bets point that way. How else would they reach him unless he has an international phone for usage. I surmise his dear father-in-law used his power to treat this patient DIFFERENTLY than any other poor kid from Africa.

    I heard that the American Border guard that let him thru is under suspension. The reason they let him thru “He didn’t look sick”, even tho he was listed on a no entry list. So here you go again the brillance of our present border security policy. We need border security, and we need it NOW!!! – Lorica

    Wait a minute here….something doesn’t add up.

    From all the reports I’ve read, this guy came back to the US because he wanted to get proper health care.

    Bbbbbut…I thought our health care system was the worst in the world!! Canada’s is so much better…even Cuba has better health care. Michael Moore said so!!

    Can anyone explain this apparent condradiction?? :o
