Some gratuitous Rick Perry bashing

August 19, 2011

So today, I have a new diary up on DKos talking about one of Rick Perry’s latest flip-flops. As with every other political subject ever, few Republicans will care about such a flip-flop, even though they will freely base entire attack campaigns on Democrats for waffling.

In this case, Perry flipped on mandatory HPV vaccination, and no longer supports it. Now, his prior support might seem like a good thing, and he’s certainly defended it in the past as such. His ties to the vaccine manufacturer, Merck, make it look more like a righteous stand to mandate vaccination as a means to line Merck’s pockets.

I guess if he wins the Presidency, maybe he’ll mandate it on the federal level. At least until the vaccine goes generic or whatever.
