Anti-Science

Michelle Bachmann and HPV

Jamie and Elyse weren’t the only ones who broke down at the sound of Michelle Bachmann’s idiotic anti-vaxx rhetoric.

Bachmann is so smart! The way to prevent our children from becoming sluts is to make sure they die of easily preventable diseases, and the way to stop them from getting a live-saving vaccine is to tell everyone the vaccine will make you mentally retarded.

And here are the HPV stats.

  1. Rebecca, you rule the Internet! There’s been a huge run on steering wheel cacti. My local Autozone and NAPA are totally out. The nearest Pep Boys does have them, but they’re way the hell out at Revere Beach, at least 45 minutes* each way, with traffic probably more. Sears says they can order them, but won’t give me an ETA.

    It’s important to get them rated for your climate, or they’ll lose their spines. Zones 4 to 7 covers most of the US, you can find some that are hardy in that range. The cheap artificial ones lose their spines anywhere, especially in bright sunlight, and are more expensive in the long run.

    BTW, there’s a little-known benefit to the car cactus, reduced noise pollution. You won’t use your horn unless you really, really need to.

    [*] Side rant: I wish my GPS would understand that just because the speed limit is 30 doesn’t mean you can travel 15 miles in half an hour. More like an hour with heavy traffic and dozens of traffic lights and stop signs.

  2. The worst part about this for me is that she had a valid point about his executive order and cronyism, but then had to ruin it with this BS about the dangers of the vaccine. Not that I want her to do well, but being the only woman running, it just makes the head-desk that much harder.

      1. Actually, the big hurdle would be getting him classified as “alive”. If you go by G1 continuity, the Autobots landed back in the Jurassic, and were just in hibernation. Since he was in the US when the Constitution was adopted, you could argue for citizenship status and qualification under Article II.
