Michelle Bachmann HPV Shots

Updated on September 19, 2011

Michelle Bachmann


After the Tea Party Movement Debate in Tampa

Michelle Bachmann claimed that a parent came up to her and reported her daughter became mentally retarded after receiving the HPV shot. I only saw this replay this Sunday on Reliable Sources.

I should mention that this claim was being asserted during the debate when Ms. Bachmann said, "Those girls don't get a Mulligan.". I had no idea what a Mulligan was. Is it a alcoholic beverage Ms. Bachmann was hallucinating about during the debate? Who could say? She says such strange things that no one really knows what to think about her except if she were Pinocchio her nose would have poked Wolf Blitzer's in the eye.

Then to justify her position after the debate she claimed a parent told her that her daughter received the shot and then became mentally retard. This was perplexing to me. The State of Florida hssn't use the diagnosis of Mentally Retard and haven't since perhaps the 1980(s). When I went to graduate school individuals with IQ(s) below 70 were referred to as educably mentally handicapped. I believe and don't quote me the term is now called intellectually challenged. So for this child to suddenly become Mentally Retard after an HPV vaccine would have required the child to jump into a time machine and travel back to the 1980(s) in Florida just for the diagnosis. Ms. Bachmann didn't have the terminology down correct. Ed Rollins must want to commit suicide only after doing Ms. Bachmann in for embarrassing him so badly.

What is clear is that Ms. Bachmann maybe suffering from a mental impairment as she has less credibility with each desperate outrageous claim. After I heard her statements about the HPV vaccines I wondered if Ms. Bachmann had about five of those shots which would explain all of her intellectual challenges.

In the end I am left wondering why Ms. Bachmann hasn't dropped out of the race? Why is she still collecting money to run when she clearly isn't fit to speak in public let alone lead a country. I can only surmise she is weakening the Republican nominee by sucking up resources and money to line her own pocket at the expense of the GOP nomination.

And someone would write Burger King and let them know they are no longer home of the Whopper. Ms. Bachmann's has claimed the title of the Whopper Queen!!

      Hi dallas93444,

      Thanks for the read, comment and the feedbck. My Dad is a politican and we also have a relative very involved in Pesidential campigns since Reagan she actually use to work in the White House druing the Reagan administration.

      I agree about that it is all played out in back rooms but that denies The People the opportunity to undersdtand their politicians although admittedly I think everyone has gotten the point because poloticians couldn't be less popular.

      I agree with you that their maybe a late adddtion to the field. I have suspect JEB will try to get inot the race and i think the last date for hiim to file will be Novemeber 1st in South Caroline although that might have changed now because a few states have moved up their primaries. I think I have consstently stated JEB will be on the ballot ether as President or Vice President in 2012.

      And you are right it is very shaddy stuff in back rooms and usually there is a consensus among the runners who will be the candidate. George Bush throw it to Obama and Obama wil throw it to the next guy. And electoral Math is very different then real Math. Not to mention the Tea Party Movement has chnaged the playing field by redistricting the state of Florida much like Texas was redistricted in 2004.

      In many ways I am just covering the news so people who don't watch can catch up and then watch to make an informed decision. I like to think of it as voter's education.

      As a child of a politican, I am not wild about politics especially when people are being told that HPV shots cause mental retardation which is entirely not PC, accurate and can even be a dangerous statement. There is politics and then there is just out rght endangering public peace of mind and safety. Ms. Bachmann chose the later road.

      What I am supremely confident in is that if there isn't a clear victor in this race our country will emrged in a civil war. We need strong leader this time around and one that is going to help the people. A good father os to speak.

      Again thank you for reading, commenting and taking the time to rate. Please leave your knife at home. Besides the pen is mightier then the sword. Your comments are valued and appreciated.

      All My Best,

      Should I bring a gun to a knife fith? Politics is alive and well. Most candidates will drop out. It is the process. The "word duels" will play out... The "real" candidate may not be in the "race" yet... Who knows what wise "words" they may say, or what partnership they have developed...

      It is a game... Most of the game is played out in back rooms. I have a relative who is a"consultant" to one of the players... It is like a game of chess... moves and counter moves in the dynamic process of politics...

      The winner is much as "chance" as planned... many variables that no one can control...

      Hi Pintoman,

      Not only was Bachmann Politiclly incorrect when she used the term retard which has been out of date for over 30 years in the state of Florida but she didn't fact check and do her homework. Clearly she is not ready to lead ever. And I have plenty on Bachmann. Every single time she opens her mouth she vomits ignorance and stupidity all over the American people.

      I am the author of the hub and I am a conservative Republican as well. Michelle Bachmann is an embarassment to the GOP party. And personal attacks are violations of the hub TOS. So perhaps you should reconsider what you write to me.

      If in fact it was a constitutional issue as you say, "Yawn!!"!!! It is such an ignorant argument. I was working on y PHD. You should have read my profile before attacking me. Yawn!! Yawn!! Then it should have been addressed as a constitutional issue and not with the fear mongering "HPV shots made someon's daughter retarded!" and the Mulligan quote. The problem with the Republican base is it is filled with uneducated ignorant people who throw a tantrum everytime they are challenged with reality. You guys worship false idols like Bachmann who lie, cheat and take advantage of your ignorance and embarrass the party everytime she speaks.

      I have criticized the President. If you had read more of my work you would have known I am not for any candidate. I think all the Bums shold be thrown out.

      But you are the bas eof my party. The simpliest most ignorant creature that would attack your member sof your own party to put another a lying, cheating, fear mongering bimbo just to avoid having to pay your fair share of taxes.

      I am you with much much more intellect and education.

      Wow. Liberal minds about to explode over a candidate repeating what someone said! Why doesn't the genius Obama drop out, he thinks there are 57 states? And the countless other stupid things he's said. That's all you've got on Bachman; she repeated someone and wasn't politically correct when she did it. And what about the author of this hub? She's not sure she's being politically correct either. Horrors! You guys need to go read the Constitution and maybe read up on what it is first. It's supposed to be the highest law in the land. Obama thinks it's outdated and trashes it constantly. But you have bigger fish to fry; someone was politically incorrect! And fyi, she isn't a doctor, she did not claim it caused mental retardation. The problem is executive orders as law. That is a separation of powers violation. Something Obama likes to do, and Perry and Romney promised to do. Brains should be on the walls by now, another case of non-p.c. there. Where's Obama's grades too? For the most open administration ever, he sure hides a lot. Is his jobs bill up for public scrutiny?

      Hi Sunshine625,

      We could but when she said Jesus Christ told her to run she frightened me. I think I will pray she finally really hears Jesus Christ who wants her to despereately drop out of the GOP race, give all her possession to the Salvation Army and join a convent. Although I would feel realy bad for the Catholic Church if she did. Maybe she could be a nurse in Calcutta like Mother Teresa.

      I will be praying for her that she gets the message to stop lying and get out of the race.

      Thank you for reading, commenting and providing feedback. Your comments are appreciated.

      I a following you as well.

      Hi GNelson,

      Ms. Bachmann is running as a Tea Party Movement Candidate and somehow they have confused ingornance with conservativism. Thanks for reading, commenting and providing feedback.


      Hi Peter,

      Sadly the media gave her credit for over a week on how articulate she was and how well she did after the debate even though she made all these outrageous claims? You have to wonder what the media is doing? As always Peter it is delilghtful to hear from you. Thank you for commenting.

      As usual Ms. Bachmann has demonstrated her razor sharp intellect for the folks. Of course the TPM was very impressed with her cammand of the language. Their "stupid is as stupid does" philosophy fits right in with this anti-science crowd. Thanks JT,
