The last time Scott Brown was wading into the Ebola conversation, earlier this week, he was fanning fears that Ebola-infected terrorists could soon come across the U.S.-Mexico border to wreak havoc upon the country. Now, the former Massachusetts senator and current New Hampshire Senate hopeful has offered us another hot take: Ebola wouldn't be a problem if American voters had had the wisdom to elect Willard Mitt Romney in 2012!

Speaking with Fox News' Brian Kilmeade on his radio program Friday, Brown asked listeners to envision a world with President Romney. Just think -- economic prosperity would be unleashed,  Russia would know its place, and "we would not be worrying about Ebola"!

“Gosh can you imagine if Mitt was the president right now?” Brown asked. “He was right on Russia, he was right on Obamacare, he was right on the economy. And I guarantee you we would not be worrying about Ebola right now and, you know, worrying about our foreign policy screw ups.”

Brown, who's supposed to be one of the more "moderate" of the GOP bunch, has run a particularly dopey campaign against Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen -- blasting "amnesty" for unauthorized immigrants, fearmongering about ISIS and Ebola, and waging unhinged attacks on health reform. Most forecasters think Shaheen is a slight favorite in the race, but lest you invest too much hope in our midterm electorate, recent polls show the race tightening, with Brown taking a one-point lead in the latest survey.
