The Left’s Compromised Immunity

by Ramesh Ponnuru

This Slate article on Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s dangerous and nutty anti-vaccine crusade* should be a reminder that 1) dynasties have downsides and 2) the claim that conservatives are distinctively “anti-science” is a polemical invention. Laura Helmuth notes in the article that Vermont has “one of the highest rates of vaccine denial and misinformation”; I’m guessing that the Burlington chapter of the tea party isn’t behind that. 

* Headline: “Don’t Feel Sorry for Robert F. Kennedy Jr.” Don’t worry, I wasn’t tempted.
