    RFK, Jr., annoys the shit out of me.

    He’s done some good work, cleaning up the Hudson River, going after polluters, and, most recently, opposing Keystone XL.

    If he stuck to protecting waterways, he’d be one of my heroes. But no, he had to go and jump on the anti-vaccine bandwagon. I’m not sure which I hate more, his role in bringing back whooping cough (and other vaccine-preventable diseases) or his speaking of autistic people as if we are the living dead. (He’s far from the only offender on that score, but he’s a big name and he *does* use that rhetoric.)
