The Grown Ups Are No Longer In Charge

Colorado has the lowest measles vaccination rate in the country.

It doesn't help that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, both Republican Presidential candidates, are encouraging parents to not vaccinate their kids with scare tactics (also here).

Not to be outdone, newly elected Republican Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina, thinks that it ought to be optional for restaurant workers to wash their hands after going to the bathroom and returning to work.  One word:  Gross!

Have viruses and bacteria banded together to form a PAC or something?  Have parasites infected Republican brains?
