In a setting not far off from Between Two Ferns, Michele Bachmann condemned "Perrycare." In the low-fi web video, the Republican presidential hopeful attacks Governor Rick Perry's "crony capitalism" over his executive order mandating the HPV vaccine for girls in Texas.
Earlier in the week, it seemed as though her tactic was to scare the parents of every little girl in this country in hopes of catching up with the GOP front-runner. Leading pediatric, bioethical and medical groups have come out to refute the notion that the HPV vaccine causes, in her words, "mental retardation." These controversial comments majorly backfired, and now she's been forced to defend her claims.
