Oy. Via Brendan Nyhan, we've now got Barack Obama jumping on the McCain autism ignorance bandwagon: "We've seen just a skyrocketing autism rate. Some people are suspicious that it's connected to the vaccines. This person included. The science right now is inconclusive, but we have to research it."

Making parents afraid to get their kids immunized does real harm to our public health. Politicians need to knock this crap off.
