Olmsted's got a thing for Specter like Stagliano, Conrick, Obradovic and Handley have a thing for Offit. It's almost embarassing. Oh, I know, like I've got a thing for the woo. Seriously, Kim, I know ya'll are thinking, is there something else you want to write about that doesn't involve the woo, the pseudoscience, the anti-vaccinists, autism, the need for a better world, for the disabled to have full access and respect, oh, and some of those occasional stories about the garden girlies and the bright boy? It's almost always countering the woo. I know. What's a gal to do? You don't read my shovel posts over at Detritus, so I figure you like the woo-fighting! :-)
AoA and Olmsted have had their knickers in a knot over Specter appearing on Stewart's show. Write Stewart, tell em how bad Specter is. Come on, really. OLMSTED. Done covered the sweet, sweet irony of that. Grill him on the vaccines! Hah. How'd that work for you?
How many of you watched Specter on Jon Stewart tonight and thought, I know folks who are really gonna be pissed. Stewart came solidly out as a person who vaccinates his children and Specter made clear that he wasn't intimidated by AoA. Good show overall. Left me smiling.
Schadenfreude. Cuz sometimes there's no other way to go.
