>> Darn it, Michelle Bachmann is acting like a mother.
Ah, there it is the second time you’ve advanced that meme.
It’s disingenuous, for at least two reasons.
1) It’s beyond obvious that Bachmann is grasping for a cudgel with which to beat Perry. “Acting like a mother” has nothing to do with it. You know it too, although I don’t expect you to admit it.
2) The thrust of the article was not so much that she is against the Gardasil mandate — but that she is against it (and other vaccines) in a hyperventilating, over-the-top, very unscientific (and unsupportable) way. That’s the origin of my earlier comment that she has become a flailing madwoman, rivaling Ron Paul in nuttiness. I stand by my opinion, and I bet we haven’t seen the last of the supporting evidence for my view.
Well, she just is. Go to any parents’ blog where this kind of thing is discussed. The mothers are typically concerned to a fault about their little darlings. That sure beats the alternative.
