This is hilarious

The anti-science crowd is fighting with each other.

Minnesota Palin claims that the HPV vaccine causes mental retardation.
There’s a woman who came up crying to me tonight after the debate. She said her daughter was given that vaccine, she told me her daughter suffered mental retardation as a result. There are very dangerous consequences

Perry, is defending science by saying that science says otherwise, just like it did about vaccines and autism.
You heard the same arguments about giving our children protections from some of the childhood diseases, and they were, autism was part of that, now we've subsequently found out that was generated and not true.

So what does the wingnut who wants science to back him up, said about global warming and scientists in consensus over it?
[It is] a scientific theory that has not been proven....all one contrived phony mess that is falling apart under its own weight.
And then this:
Yes, our climate has changed. It has been changing ever since the Earth was formed. But I do not buy into a group of scientists who have, in some cases, have been found to be manipulating data.
Our lamestream media should be on those accusation like stink on shit, but since they too bust sucking on exhaust fumes from Alaska Palin's bus and less important matters, Steve Miles is throwing down the gauntlet on Facebook.

I say it goes uncollected.

Also, Perry just lost Jenny McCarthy's and Bill Maher's vote. Two more in Minnesota Palin's column.

That statement,"...scientists who have, in some cases, have been found to be manipulating data" has been so debunked for so long it tells me that Rick Perry is completely out of touch with common media.

Well, it is true he is the Dominionists "anointed one," so it is to be expected that he has no facts at his command.

But there is no excuse for what Michele Bachmann said - she is supposedly a mother, as well as a foster parent of a couple dozen unwed teenage mothers - she should absolutely know better. A young woman does not get a vaccine against the Human Papilloma Virus one day then magically wake up the next having lost half her mental capacity. It just shows massive irresponsible ignorance on Rep Bachmann's part; fear mongering in the Cheney tradition.

That's all the Republicans have left - fear mongering and ignorance - that's why they won't go to work to cooperate in Congress - they are paralyzed in their idiocy.

Unfortunately, we cannot blame their stupidity on vaccines.

Actually, no. What it tells me is that Perry is really smart in that he'll say anything that people want to hear, and he can do so without appearing to contradict himself. Look, he was Al Gore's campaign manager. AL FUCKING GORE, the ultimate liberal. Then he said he was conservative and rose to power. He understands that vaccines work. Until the tea baggers object to it now. Then he backs off by saying it is a mistake to force it.

You are right, all they have is fear mongering and ignorance, and it works.

It works because the Democrats are fearful, and too cowardly to fight ignorance.

It is almost as if the fear-mongering of the Republicans is scaring Democrats

I bet you that if he accidentally (on purpose) shouted into an open mic "I am going to beat that nigger Obama", he'll rank higher in the polls by saying either of

1. The lamestream media misquoted me
2. I was exercising my First Amendment right as a patriot in private

Fuck, Ed Rollins is stabbing her in the back. I bet he now jumps ship to Perry's side:

Ed Rollins is as stoopid as she is - they deserve each other. Maybe she can farm him out to the Palin.
