Well, I guess it’s time to find a new conspiracy site. Hillary Clinton has just informed everyone the Earth is round. Take that Neil deGrasse Tyson. You and your science.

Why is she calling people ignorant? Well, the 2016 GOP hopefuls are having a new contest. Who can single-handedly cause a pandemic around the world? In one corner you have Christ Christie. He’s either hugging Jerry Jones or wants the world to look like World War Z.

In the other corner is Rand Paul. A viable 2016 candidate who suffers from one hell of a case of ‘foot in mouth disease.’ At this point, I think the GOP is engaging in a massive game of Punk’d.

Hillary Clinton, former Senator and Secretary of State, has come down on the side of vaccines. Or as some people like to call it, science. “The science is clear: The earth is round, the sky is blue, and #vaccineswork. Let’s protect all our kids. #GrandmothersKnowBest.,” she tweeted.

Vaccines are back in the news after a measles outbreak in Disneyland has infected 102 in 14 states.

On Monday, two potential 2016 GOP hopefuls fell into some hot water concerning vaccines. Chris Christie said his children are fully vaccinated and it’s important to public health. Of course, there’s a but here. He added, “I also understand that parents need to have some measure of choice in things as well, so that’s the balance that the government has to decide.”

I fully expect marijuana proponents to seize on those words. They thank you for the tailor-made campaign ad.

Next was Rand Paul. Never one to be outdone, he went even further. Appearing on CNBC he repeated some rather dubious claims on vaccines, and in an earlier interview said they should be voluntary.
