My morning routine is always consistent: double espresso, reading the paper on line and listening in on Valley News Today and then The Today Show.
Tuesday morning, I was especially looking forward to a recap of the previous evening’s Presidential debate. Imagine my thrill to learn Congresswoman Bachmann would be doing a live interview!
This should be good, I thought.
It seems she took issue with Governor Perry’s insisting all girls be vaccinated for the HPV virus. I thought Republicans had a sense of entitlement when it comes to women and doctor’s offices, but in this case, Congresswoman Bachmann was incensed that the Governor had the audacity to get involved with women’s health issues.
(I think he should have encouraged the vaccine. Strongly. But executive order? That’s going too far. Then I remembered Republicans are very comfortable telling women what’s best for their reproductive health)
Anyway, the Congresswoman went on to tell the heartbreaking story of a mother whose daughter turned mentally retarded after receiving the vaccine.
Hmmmm, I thought. I’d never heard of that one. Seems odd? That should have been pretty big news.
Well, by the time the 6 p.m. news was on, virtually every medical organization in the United States was denouncing the Congresswoman’s statement.
How many times do I have to tell the good Congresswoman? Just because you say it doesn’t mean it’s true. Just because you tell the simple minded what they want to believe, doesn’t mean someone else isn’t going to verify your statement and go on national tv and reveal you as a liar.
A woman who consistently demonstrates judgment on such a poor level is barely capable of managing her own life. She is not capable of leading the most powerful nation on earth.
Today’s Gay Agenda: Michelle, time to go home and continue to pray the gay away for poor Marcus. He’s starting to look really stressed. I think he’s gonna slip up again.
