In what marks the first (and likely the last) time Glenn has ever agreed with Alan Grayson, it appears the Congressman was calling for air travel to be restricted in the wake of Ebola concerns. Glenn reads what Grayson wrote on July 29th and it’s hard to disagree with any of it -- but is it too late to do anything?
"I don't think that there is another -- there is another group of people that believe what we believe that would be willing to stand up in a crowd and do what we're about to do," Glenn said.
"But we have always said that if somebody is right, we will recognize their rightness. We will recognize what they have done. Let's not just always be separating people. Let's recognize."
"And this one is killing me to do. I just want you to know. Literally, I may drop dead after I do this."
I write to request the imposition of a travel ban on the citizens of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, and any foreign person who has visited one of these nations 90 days prior to arriving in the United States.
I also ask that this ban be expanded to any other nation that reports originating a case of Ebola virus disease (‘Ebola’), and that travel restrictions be removed only when 90 days have passed without a newly reported case.
"The blood coming out of my eyes is the fact that I'm hemorrhaging from my brain from saying Alan Grayson was right," Glenn said. "It has nothing to do with Ebola. But he's right."
