The Ebola River is in northern Democratic Republic of the Congo, it is the headstream of the Mongala River, a tributary of the Congo River. The first cases of the Ebola virus were reported nearby and the disease was subsequently named after the river.

WASHINGTON— House Putterer John Boehner (R-OH.M.G.) was ragging to the press earlier today about President Barack Obama’s strategy against ISIS, saying “butts on the ground” would be needed, because, well, that’s just how “we roll.” He was reluctant to say just whose butts he intends to roll into harm’s way.
“At the end of the day, uh, I think it’s gonna take more than, uh, airstrikes and billions of dollars to drive them outta there,” Boehner said. “At some point, somebody’s spawn has gotta get their butts blown off.”
Reporter Mal Aprop of BSN asked if that meant American butts.
“Listen, the president doesn’t want to do that, because he doesn’t have the stomach for killing, no matter what the reason. But if I were the president, I probably wouldn’t have talked about what I wouldn’t do, or, uh, you know, what I might do. Or even what I would do do. But where I come from, War always means butts on the ground, so somebody’s butts have to be there.”
“So you would recommend putting American butts on the ground, then?” asked Aprop.
“We have no choice,” Boehner sobbed, dabbing away tears. “These are Conan-like barbarians. They said they wanna kill us. So unless we all just wanna lay down and die, we’re gonna hafta pay the price and, uh.. send some more of your children’s butts over there to die.”
Yeah, you did say that all along. Vociferously. All the more reason to presume your big butt was right in the middle of it.
Outside of those folks who think you’re nothin’ but an adorable pizza pie-eatin’ machine slash governator, the rest of us realize you’re responsible for knowing what your closest little minions are up to, bozo.
Being too busy with your national ambitions to eat the whole U.S. pie is not an excuse. If you’re “cooperating fully” with the investigation, as you claim, then stop using “executive privilege” to prevent pertinent documents from being released to the committee. Either your minions were running the asylum or you were running amok. So do the right thing. Shut your pie hole about how innocent you are of these shenanigans, and fall on your sword like a responsible hot air bag should.
