Jim Geraghty of National Review and and Greg Corombos of Radio America find themselves drowning in crazy martinis again today. They slap their foreheads as a new GOP congressman from Tennessee – who is also a doctor – appears to tell a constituent that he’s hesitant to accept the government’s denial that childhood vaccinations cause autism and says he thinks the Centers for Disease Control have “fraudulently managed” data on the issue. They also rub their hand with glee at the possibility of political inroads with young people as Democratic regulators in California consider a tax on text messaging and then consider some far more annoying aspects of modern communication that ought to be taxed. And they can only smile as Nancy Pelosi somehow jumps on the bandwagon for term limits in the Democratic leadership in exchange for four more years as Speaker of the House.

    It should be a mainstay of every and all conservatives to distrust or question government.

    It should also be such on mandating people do anything.

    It is not a secret that the database for vaccine injury is not complete. Whether it is due to incompetence or ideological agenda, it has the same issues as whatever tracks abortion injury.

    And it could just be this the doctor says he will look into.

    And even if it weren’t something to be aware of, the FDA’s handling of nutrition should be a huge, blinking, red light against putting too much faith in a government agency concerning our health.

    But regardless, a bunch of Republicans hanging up on a fellow conservative (running for office with solid conservative positions) is incredibly distasteful and I’m rather ashamed to have listened to it.
