Last night Jon Stewart tore into the state level response to the first Ebola patient in New York City -- starting with the knee-jerk quarantines set up by Governors Christie and Cuomo.

"Why does Christie have to be such a dick about everything!?" Stewart exclaimed.

Stewart reminded folks that you can only catch Ebola by having direct contact with bodily fluids from someone with Ebola. He also pointed out that the quarantine could discourage doctors from volunteering to help contain Ebola in West Africa.

"The Daily Show" is broadcasting from Teas this week -- another state that had a brush with Ebola. Watch the clip from the Zach Theater in Austin below:
