Michelle Bachmann wants you to believe that a vaccination against cervical cancer can cause mental retardation. Oh, and she brings this up to score cheap political points against Rick Perry. Read how Leonard Pitts calls her out on it.
Leonard Pitts: Bachmann's Irresponsible Behavior
For the record, all three of my daughters received this specific vaccination. All three of my daughters are honor students as well. There may be no connection between the these two facts, but my making a none-too-subtle claim that the vaccination can cause higher intelligence is just as valid as Bachmann's claim that it can cause mental retardation. The difference? I admit that my claim is just simply made-up bull$hit.
