She was once caught...

Fortunately you are perfect so when they announce your engagement they will only say positive things.

BTW - was I once married to you? Your negative comment sounds very familiar.

It could have been even MORE worse. John Hager from the old TV show, Hee Haw (double chuckle as John is the twin if Jim)

Hager contracted polio in 1974 when his son was vaccinated for the disease. As a result, he uses a nonmotorized wheelchair for daily ambulation.

I have never heard of anything like that before!?

From Wiki:

(John) Hager contracted polio in 1974 when his son was vaccinated for the disease. As a result, he uses a nonmotorized wheelchair for daily ambulation.

Dad contrtacted polio because the son was vaccinated?

I saw the same thing. Wierd.

When I was in the second grade I contracted polio after I got the shot. But it was gone within a few months.

They used to use a live polio virus in the vaccine. It could be transmitted through bodily fluids of a vaccinated person. Usually happened while changing the diapers of a baby who had recently received the live vaccine.

Well, hopefully Jenna has sowed her wild oats , and now has more of them to sow within the institution of matrimony, where she will be a lot safer.

Poung Henry had better be prepared, it likely promises to be a wild ride.

They make a great couple in appearance:

Yes it is possible. They use a live form of the virus; and if a parent was never themselves immunized they can contract polio from thier child; it doesn’t happen too often anymore. but is is a good idea to keep children who have been recently vaccinated away from elderly folks who never have been.

the attenuated virus (weakened) is given to mount an immune response thereby giving you immunity from the disease, but it's excreted in stool and was probably the source for dad's infection. Say...always wash your hands after changing the baby's diaper.

This is basically from the Oral polio vaccine and not the killed injectable viral vaccination.

I have never heard of anything like that before!? At one point one available type of polio vaccine actually used live virus. If I remember correctly, it was the "sugar cube" type of polio vaccine.

You're not the same "Jane" that used to sit side by side with Chevy Chase on SNL, are you? I may have to address you differently...

Lighten up honey--I was using sarcasm to point out that we typically hear that sort of thing from the MSM; i.e., "Jenna Bush, now engaged, was once caught for underage drinking..."

My best wishes go out to the engaged couple.

Was I the only one who caught the sarcasm of that remark? I think what Lou was trying to say within that one line is that the MSM will be on that period of her life until she is dead and gone! I can hear the MSM discussing the birth of the couples first child “Hope Jenna wasn’t drinking while carrying her child” and then when the little kids go off to college “If Jenna’s children are anything like her we will be hearing of their ordering martinis in a bar before long”.....it will never end.
Maybe I am wrong on that one

I am being sarcastic. That is the liberal line. If George Bush likes this war so much why aren’t his daughters over there fighting.

he took 25 credit hours in one semester and graduated with his degree in mechanical engineering in 1958. In college, he joined ROTC and continued to run his own business.
