California GOP Lady: Why Cram Vaccines Down Everyone’s Throat Over One Measly Outbreak?

Think about the real victims, will you?
Last month, the California Senate passed SB 277, a bill that got rid of exemptions for “personal and religious beliefs” from the state’s mandate that all children be vaccinated before they can attend school. The bill is still awaiting a vote in the full State Assembly, and gosh darn it, Kristin Olsen, the State Assembly GOP Leader, is worried that California is rushing into passing this bill without thinking things through. In a radio interview last week, Olsen explained that there’s no need to go requiring vaccines just because a bunch of unvaccinated kids led to one teeny-tiny multi-state measles outbreak: Read more on California GOP Lady: Why Cram Vaccines Down Everyone’s Throat Over One Measly Outbreak?…

Today In Duh, Science: Yes, Anti-Vaxxers Caused Disneyland Measles Outbreak. Duh. Science.

Good job, anti-vaxxers
Don’t you love when science confirms what you already knew in your gut because it is just so obvious? Of course you do, you smug self-righteous liberal, and so do we! Of course we were already blaming anti-vaxxers for bringing back measles and spreading them around Disneyland, but a fresh new study confirms that yup, is it definitely scientifically their fault, so let’s blame them even harder now: Read more on Today In Duh, Science: Yes, Anti-Vaxxers Caused Disneyland Measles Outbreak.

Wingnuts Pretty Sure It Was Illegals What Gave Measles To All Our Unvaccinated Kids

Too subtle?
Break out the ominous creepyscary music of your choice — we’re partial to Bernard Hermann ourselves — because it’s time to tell some scary horror stories about the California measles outbreak! So far, at least 78 confirmed cases have been disagnosed across 7 states and Mexico; 48 of those have been traced to Disneyland or Disney California Adventure since the outbreak was first identified, and public health officials say that the large number of unvaccinated people is a main cause of the virus’s widespread transmission.

Doctors To Fox Host: Vaccinate Your Kids, Idiot

Srs Doctors are Srs
A panel of doctors had very little patience for a Fox News host’s “hurr-durr, LIBERTY” argument Wednesday, rejecting the notion that people should be allowed to opt out of vaccinating their kids simply because they don’t want Big Government pushing them around. On “Happening Now” (which is not a revival of the beloved ’80s sitcom “What’s Happenin’ Now”), host Jenna Lee discussed the current measles outbreak in California, which started at Disneyland and has since led to unvaccinated students being told to stay home from an Orange County high school. And then she unleashed Fox News Worship Words — PERSONAL LIBERTY — and even invoked the specter of federal regulation: Read more on Doctors To Fox Host: Vaccinate Your Kids, Idiot…

Terrible Elite Westside Jerks Now Giving Mickey Mouse Measles

Good job, anti-vaxxers
Disneyland: it’s the Most Magical Place on Earth. So magical that among recent attendees, at least 19 have been diagnosed with measles, a disease much of the planet had essentially eradicated. Despite last week’s nice time about public schools’ ability to require vaccinations because we still dabble in established science, this remains the Land of the Free and you, Jack and Janie Liberty, still get to choose if you want your child to endanger public health. That’s why we lag behind 100+ countries, including Cambodia and Burundi, when it comes to vaccinating our children. Exceptional!

Disneyland White-Power Rabbit Makes Black Children Cry

Well! Sure hope you weren’t planning on being anything other than sad and angry today, because we bring you a shitty story of misery and suck. Maybe you won’t even care, like “Disneyland, commodifying children’s dreams, anti-corporatism, OCCUPY!” Well maybe you should shut your fucking piehole, because Disneyland is awesome (if you never, ever, ever, ever go on a weekend), and we took our own sweet son there every year on the Wednesday closest to his birthday from the time he was two until he hit 14 and we didn’t care about him anymore. AND IT WAS MAGICAL MOM AND SON TIME AND WE LOVED IT. AND ONE YEAR HIS EYES LIT THE FUCK UP AT THE SLEEPING BEAUTY BARBIE AND WE SPENT $30 ON A FUCKING BARBIE FOR HIM. AND GUESS WHAT KEITH ABLOW OUR SON IS NOT GAY. (Mommyblogging!) (This part is the cutest: so his eyes lit up when he saw the Barbie of his dreams, and we literally said “Hey, look over there!” and then handed the clerk the doll from behind our back and it totally worked. Man, three-year-olds. So fucking stupid, amirite?) Have you noticed we have not yet gotten to the suck and misery? Yeah, we have noticed that too.

RNC Delegate Offended That a ‘Mexican’ Works at Epcot Center’s America

Aw, look at this nice picture of Mark Harris and his wife, who had a nice time in Florida until they went to the Epcot Center at Disneyworld and were shocked, shocked, to find a Mexican employee working at the American pavilion, which “showcases different cultures in the United States.” Read more on RNC Delegate Offended That a ‘Mexican’ Works at Epcot Center’s America…

Awkward Video Moments Preserved Forever: Barack Obama Pardons a Turkey

In the days before YouTube, our computers were pretty safe from stuff like this. But, as slaves to audio-visual technology, we must now be exposed to moments best captured by a single photograph — as in turkey pardons of past presidencies — and then quickly forgotten. Here, President Obama again shows his cruel elitism, as he “jokes” about wishing he was doing something other than “pardoning a turkey and sending it to Disneyland.” Maureen Dowd is going to lose her shit. But what about the YouTube commenters? Read more on Awkward Video Moments Preserved Forever: Barack Obama Pardons a Turkey…
 

American Investors Plan ‘Disneyland’ Thingy For Baghdad

Llewellyn Werner is a California investor who doesn’t like death, but does like Disneyland. Most of us don’t draw the distinction, but Werner wants to replace the former with the latter in Baghdad with “The Baghdad Zoo and Entertainment Experience,” a developing “American-style amusement park that will feature a skateboard park, rides, a concert theatre and a museum.” Christ, wasn’t the plan to get the oil first and then destroy them with Americanization? Priorities, people. Read more on American Investors Plan ‘Disneyland’ Thingy For Baghdad…
 

Crazy New Orleans Mayoral Candidate: End of an Era

Sadly, this is the header image that currently greets visitors to Kimberly Williamson Butler’s campaign website. We don’t know if it was our constant, affectionate coverage, or the less affectionate threats of legal action, but Ms. Butler is no longer enjoying a summer day in the Magic Kingdom in her campaign portrait.

Kimberly Williamson Butler Continues to Astound Us

Above, Butler’s website image as it appeared last week. Below, the image today. In both: Wonderous power of imagination. So, Ms. Butler, after threats of action of Disney Lawyers, you took the time to photoshop the trashcan out of your header image there, but didn’t bother to go take a picture of you in the REAL NEW ORLEANS, WHERE YOU LIVE.

Crazy New Orleans Mayoral Candidate Having a Bad Week

Ah, Kimberly Williamson Butler. In case you forgot, she’s the mayoral candidate in New Orleans whose website featured (jesus, still features) a picture of her grinning happily on a French Quarter street corner that, it seems, exists only in Disneyland. This despite her living in the actual New Orleans, of course. So we can all tell she’s a bit nuts. Unlike us, though, the Walt Disney Corporation is unamused: Read more on Crazy New Orleans Mayoral Candidate Having a Bad Week…
 

Crazy New Orleans Mayoral Candidate Update: Crazier Than We Thought!

Well, since this morning, we’ve confirmed it: that picture of New Orleans Mayoral Candidate Kimberly Williamson Butler was definitely taken in Disneyland. No streets in the French Quarter curve like that, among other obvious discrepancies. Now what kind of campaign would bother to so obviously fake a photo of the candidate standing on a corner in the city he or she actually lives in? Well, the kind of campaign whose candidate may have been too busy spending a couple nights in jail to take a real picture: Read more on Crazy New Orleans Mayoral Candidate Update: Crazier Than We Thought!…
 

Not Quite the Happiest Place On Earth

So we don’t have too much of a stake in the New Orleans Mayoral elections and it’s a bit (or a lot) out of our usual purview, but someone sent us this tip that we just can’t pass up. We don’t know much about candidate Kimberly Williamson Butler, but we have been to New Orleans, and, uh, this picture doesn’t quite look right to us: On the left, the header image of Butler’s campaign website. On the right, a picture of New Orleans Square in Disneyland. And, uh, we’re not sayin’, we’re just sayin’… frankly, we don’t remember what the trash cans looked like in the French Quarter, but the cleanliness of the street and the presence of fannypackin’ middle-Americans has us a wee bit suspicious.
