Bachmann turns up overwrought:

Michele Bachmann again accused Rick Perry of practicing “crony capitalism” Tuesday morning, appearing on NBC’s “Today” show to criticize Perry for seeking to force “innocent little 12-year-old girls or 11-year-old girls” to take a “potentially dangerous” vaccine injection.

Repeating criticism she leveled at Perry in Monday night’s debate, Bachmann noted that Perry’s former chief of staff had been a lobbyist for Merck when Perry tried to mandate the use of a Merck-produced vaccine for HPV.

And this time, Bachmann added a bracing story that she said a woman told her in Florida overnight.

“I will tell you that I had a mother last night come up to me here in Tampa, Fla., after the debate. She told me that her little daughter took that vaccine, that injection, and she suffered from mental retardation thereafter,” Bachmann said.

…and that little girl grew up to be ….

Sarah Palin.

I, for one, look forward to President Bachmann nominating Jenny McCarthy as the Surgeon General.



Yeah. Like I would tell you....
