On the word of one distraught mother, she would ban the use of a vaccination approved by actual scientists and the FDA.

Yeah, that is responsible governing. . .

You're assuming that the woman actually exists and the conversation actually happened....

I would argue that listening to Michele Bachmann is the real cause of mental retardation.

Could somebody please explain to Michelle Bachmann what a controlled, double-blind study is?

Dr. Paul Offit, author of

Autism’s False Prophets

: Offit explains, is that there's no way, biologically speaking, for the HPV vaccine to even impact the nervous system. "It's doesn't even make biological sense," he says. The Gardasil vaccine is produced by taking the gene that coats the HPV virus, and then putting that in a yeast plasma, and then putting that plasma in your bloodstream. But it has nothing to do with the nervous system. But don't just take his word for it: "HPV vaccines were studied in thousands of people in many countries around the world, including the United States," notes the Center for Disease Control on its website. "These studies found that both HPV vaccines were safe and cause no serious side effects."

"In a better world you would like to think the HPV vaccine would never need to be mandated," says Offit. "If you seek out information—and I would argue I'm informed about vaccines, I mean my children are full vaccinated—you will make the right decisions. The problem is people like Michele Bachmann. If you're looking to inform yourself about vaccines, she is going to misinform you." Instead of choosing the potentially life-saving vaccination, parents will steer clear—and as a consequence, expose their children to potentially life-threatening diseases.

The fail here is unbelievably strong.

She has it backwards. The peculiar form of mental retardation that has no medical basis and can only be put down to "deliberately stupid", causes opposition to HPV vaccination.

Whether or not you agree with Perry's decision to mandate inoculations, and regardless of whether Perry was motivated primarily by his concern for the health of young girls or his desire to bring a huge contract to his pharmaceutical buddies -- Bachmann is once again displaying a complete disregard for sound reasoning and a profound ignorance about the process of science.

Bachmann hears "stuff" from her neighbors, reads "stuff" on a blog site, and runs with it without investigating the veracity of the information.  Isolated anecdotal accounts that are completely devoid of evidence establishing causal relationships have no place in the decision making process when establishing public policy.
