"Typhoid" Jenny McCarthy--Bio

Born in Chicago on November 1, 1972. The main thing she used to be remembered for seems to be her Playboy spread in October of 1993 (and the attendant breast implants), but she's also credited as an actress, comedian, author and model [source: Wikipedia]. Amazingly enough, I've never seen any of this.

Her new career has made her the public face of anti-vaccination activism after her claims that a Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccination at 15 months caused autism in her son. But before that, she claimed she was an "indigo mom" and her kid was a "crystal"--some sort of New-Agey woo that amounts to trying to spin an ordinary kid with ADHD into someone very special--maybe with psychic abilities! Sheesh. Is there a website about her experience? Why yes. Yes, there is. Bring your hip waders--she shovels it pretty deep, here.

I consider the anti-vaxxers to be the most dangerous of the kooks, since they generate a body-count. Every time they convince another parent to forego vaccination, a child runs the risk of dying.


I'd try to make fun of her, but the "indigo" the hell do I top that?
