As already reported, Michele Bachmann is now peddling the asinine, completely unfounded, defamatory claim that the Gardasil HPV vaccine can cause "mental retardation". I know you all may be thinking, how many doses of HPV vaccine did Michele take, anyway? I mean, I thought she was against the stuff.
It turns out that this stuff is old hat for the religious right. They make lots of bogus medical claims all the time. Many of them have been against vaccination since vaccination was invented in the 1800's. They also claim that condoms can't prevent STDs like AIDS. They claim that abortions increase a woman's risk of breast cancer. All of these are false. These people are the furthest thing from medical experts, and asking their opinion on medicine is like asking a plumber his opinion about brain surgery or rocket science.
It goes without saying that people like Michele Bachmann doesn't care about the truth in the slightest. She will say absolutely anything. She is just a brunette version of Michaele Salahi, and has about the same level of social grace.
This leads one to ask, who in the world could possible be dumb enough to support Michele Bachmann. The answer has to be *people even dumber than her*. Since most of the things coming out of Bachmann's mouth are borderline retarded anyway, apparently this would make her supporters, full-on, certifiable, D-level special ed.
However, this provokes the follow-up question of, "Why would Bachmann supporters worry about the HPV vaccine causing mental retardation when they are already mentally retarded?" One would think they would already have immunity. I mean, perhaps they are worried that it will drop their IQs from 2 to 1, but, seriously, it wouldn't be much of a difference.
