Sarah Palin should be very grateful to Michelle Bachman. In fact, if I were Palin, I’d be sending the Republican presidential hopeful bouquets of roses. Because if anyone can take the heat off Palin, it has to be this numbskull.
Earlier this week, during an appearance on the Today Show, Bachman claimed that the Gardasil HPV vaccine, which can prevent cervical cancer in women, was responsible for causing mental retardation in a young girl who received the vaccine.
Despite no proof of this supposed girl’s existence, even in the face of a $11,000 reward offered by two bioethicists, Bachman insisted the story was true, because a woman at a Tea Party gathering had told her so.
Well, hell, that’s all the evidence I would need before I went on national television and made a compete ass of myself with a statement like that!
The other night, I watched Jay Leno’s conversation with Bachman, and three times he asked her about the tale of the retarded girl, and if she regretted passing on the unsubstantiated story. Not once did Bachman give a direct response. Instead, she repeatedly said that the real problem was Texas Governor Rick Perry, who she said was trying to force girls to get the vaccination, because his political cronies stood to make a fortune off the drug.
As I recall, this is the same person who once claimed that the movie The Lion King promoted homosexuality, and who said that the gay community is specifically targeting children.
Now don’t you all feel dumb for picking on Al Gore, when all he claimed to do was invent the internet?
I think Barack Obama is going to go down in history as one of the worst presidents the United States has ever seen. For a while there, I thought anyone would be a better choice for the Oval Office. That was until I started hearing about Michelle Bachman. This lady is a fruitcake!
Yeah, that’s just the kind of person we need in an office that controls much of the world’s fate. If she ever does get elected, I hope nobody ever says “Man, those Japanese are killing us in the auto industry,” because she might just nuke Tokyo off the map!
Hey Michelle, your village called, and they want their idiot to come home!
