Christie, Walker pose as medical experts, screw things up

[Updated, 9:07 pm.] When you have a medical issue these days, call your local Republican presidential wannabe. Though it's sorta like getting investment advice from Glenn Beck or partying tips from the Palin clan.

Today, it's GOP governor and Scott Walker rainmaker Chris Christie substituting his politically-motivated misinformation about Ebola for good science.

And speaking of Wrong-Way Walker, he's brought his own brand of fact-deficient and medically-unsound interference to political matters in Wisconsin.

Dr. Walker decided that women should not complain his mandating medically-unnecessary and invasive transvaginal ultrasound examinations because he didn't have a problem with it:

"I don't have any problem with ultrasound," he told reporters, according to the AP. "I think most people think ultrasounds are just fine."
And Walker is trying to force food stamp recipients to pass a drug test, though there is no evidence other than Walker's sop to far-right stereotyping that, like the forced ultrasounds, there is any medical necessity to such testing.
