Breaking news: HPV vaccine does NOT make you more “promiscuous”

Why would anyone oppose a vaccine that could protect people from the human papillomavirus and, ultimately cervical cancer? Well, there’s intellectual heavy weight and amateur scientist Michele Bachmann, who claims the vaccine causes mental retardation. But a more widespread fear among some conservatives is that it will lead to “promiscuity.” And at the end of the day, having a lot of sex with a lot of people is way worse than dying of cancer.

Of course, the science proves, once again, that there is no correlation between the HPV vaccine and sexual behavior. A new study looking at a sample of nearly 1,400 girls, found no evidence that those who were vaccinated beginning around age 11 went on to engage ...

Guess who’s slamming islamophobia & defending Huma Abedin?

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN), has long been inspired by Joe McCarthy, and this time, she is aiming her witch hunt at Huma Abedin, a Pakistani-American top aide to Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, for her alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Abedin is also married to Jewish former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY), the perfect way to inflitrate, not only the U.S, Government, but the Jewish World! [that was sarcasm and I'm Jewish]

Guess who defended Abedin and religious liberty (for Muslims, not just Christians, which is often the implicit argument made by those who defend religious liberty lately)? Conservative Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI)! Here he is during a town hall meeting on Sunday, trying to reason with a most ...

Michele Bachmann on women voters: mistaken or dishonest?

Michele Bachmann appeared on Face the Nation Sunday to share totally incorrect information about women voters.

“The myth is there is a Republican war on women. There’s not a Republican war on women…. That’s coming from the Obama reelection team…. Actually, if you look at the 2010 elections, women went Republican. They didn’t go Democrat, and they will this time as well, because women are more concerned about the economy and jobs for themselves, for their husbands, for their children, and that’s not happened because obama’s broken his promises. …

And it was women who overwhelmingly went Republican and threw out a woman speaker [Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)]. I think this time again what women want, Bob, is they want competence, and, unfortunately, ...

Breaking: Michele Bachmann is now pro-choice

JK! She still thinks abortion should be illegal under all circumstances–even in cases of rape, incest, and threats to a woman’s health. She just really hates Obamacare:

The irony hurts.

Breaking: Michele Bachmann drops out of the race for president


via The Caucus

So at least for now, Michele Bachmann will not be the US’s first woman president.

The Republican field is now led by an all male ménage à cinq, though Perry is currently “assessing” if he should keep wasting money. It’s very likely the three way of Romney, Santorum, and Paul that emerged in Iowa will dominate the Republican primary. Though obviously Gingrich has no idea when to just go away.

Michele Bachmann’s daughters aren’t allowed to ask boys out

Michele Bachmann didn’t go to her senior prom and she’s determined to ensure that her daughters won’t either. Or, at least, that’s what I gathered from this interview with Sean Hannity about Bachman’s new book. (Listen to the audio here.)

BACHMANN: People do find out [in my book] that I did not get asked to my senior prom.

HANNITY: Well, neither did I. And nobody would go with me.

BACHMANN: Well, in my time, girls didn’t ask boys to prom. If you didn’t get asked, you didn’t go.

HANNITY: Yeah, well let me tell you, I have a 13-year-old son. Those days have changed big time.

BACHMANN: And our girls are not allowed to do that in our house. They have to wait ...

Wednesday Weigh-In: Bachmann and Schlafly Lovefest Edition

We can’t be too surprised that Michele Bachmann is gaga for anti-feminist Phyllis Schlafly, but to contend that the woman who has made her very career trying to destroy gender equality is the most important woman in the country? Well, that’s definitely saying a lot about Bachmann’s politics. At a Tea Party event last month, Bachmann said:

[Shlafly] is my heroine and my example as a forerunner…She truly is the mother of the modern conservative movement. I think she is the most important woman in the United States in the last one hundred years. Whatever Phyllis Schlafly says, it’s important that we listen, because she’s there on every issue, on every front. She is our ...
