I bet I'm not the only one who was kind of surprised by this.

Goddamn it, Oregon.

Congratulations, Illinois. You've found yet another way to disgust me.

There's a lot of stupid people out there.

She's completely annoying....but I'd still "intellectually look her up" if you know what I mean.

You might want to take another shot at that spelling, though none of us is immune to the occasional mistake.

I would have been had I not met my girlfriend's affluent friends. They buy into this derp. Also chemtrails and 9/11 conspiracies. Far too much idle time on their hands it seems.

It made me a little more hopeful for the South.

At least they're ranking #1 on a good thing for once.

I'm not surprised. It's the hippy-dippy states that fear corporate medicine and love alternative methods.

WTF? Words fail me.

Well, on the bright side this does confirm that before I have kids I should leave my insulated Oregonian paradise.

Read the real article, not the summary.

That looks scary until you realize the difference between lowest and highest is a margin of only 4-5%...   Gotta love how they make a non-issue small margin look scary with colors.

Haha. Chemtrails. Why is it always my NPR loving relatives that buy into this one?

I like the giant number of states colored for 'no data available' which is another way of saying 'didn't bother to figure it out' and 'cherry picking data to make things look more extreme'.

Terrible graphing abilities at mother jones.

/summons pie chart to tell me what percentage of the pie chart is a pie chart.

Who cares? I just enjoy seeing Dr. McCarthy naked.

Huh? She's not a Doctor? Oh well, I still like seeing her naked.
 
2014-02-19 04:53:54 PM
Seriously, what is the deal with Oregon?  I visit there often, and the people seem quite nice and show no external sign of the level of stupidity that the map in TFA would suggest.
 
2014-02-19 04:54:17 PM
I read "Jenni McCarthy" and "Look Up" and all I can think of is her skirt. And Im betting that I am not alone.

Interesting. In my experience it's the Libertarians who espouse how unnecessary vaccines are.

Either Mississippi is a bastion protector of personal medical information or someone took the pencil over to Louisiana and forgot to bring it back.

Only three states had "no data" for vaccination or existing laws. A bunch had no bills introduced from 2009-2012.

The correlation between law and vaccination rate appears weak. Not nonexistent, but not strong. You see the full range of vaccination rates in states with middle ground laws. Adjacent Nevada and Oregon are in the same law class and opposite ends of the opt out rate class.

I watched all of ABC's "New Year's Rockin' Eve" coverage at Times Square and I think I saw Jenni McCarthy's eyebrows twitch once!

This really surprises me. I'm from Kansas and I figured the science-rejecting derpers here would be leading the pack.

Three. There are three states with no data: Mississippi, West Virginia, and South Carolina.

You may need to tweak the color settings on your monitor or something...

Oregon is Lex Luthor's real plan to acquire oceanfront property. In about ten years, all he'll have to do is walk in there, sneeze and the state will be his for the picking.

Otisburg. Just south of Luthorville.

Depends on who you are, and where you're going.  The state has healthy populations of both the very far left and the very far right.  In the cities you find the "fluoride gives us cancer and sandwiches are racist" lefties and in the east you find the libertarian-militia conservatives who wish the Idaho border was a lot farther west.

And to the south you have a bunch of Mormons.

If you're a straight white dude?  You're probably fine, though.

Lol, yup. I had falling out with one the aforementioned friends because of it. I told her that I view conspiracy nutters the same way as racists. You have perfectly legitimate reasons to be angry with the government, corporations, or whatever that you don't have to buy into that garbage. Get togethers are much more bearable now.

We've been thinking about spending some time in the US and the husband has been lobbying for Oregon. I'm convinced it's full of idealistic hipsters and this map is going in my bookmarks to use in a future argument.

cgraves67: "It's the hippy-dippy states that fear corporate medicine and love alternative methods."

The map is more a reflection of whether a given state has made it easier for its local idiots to act on their idiocy, rather than any reflection on the political bent of that idiocy.

Between anti-vaxers and anti-GMO, I would have to say the dems are a strong contender for "The Anti-Science Party". The GOP is going to have up their Global Warming Denial and bring in their religious backup of Young-Earthers if they want to keep their position.

Also, this is a repeat article, altho last time it was on Jezebel.

Usually I just head down the coast, where they're happy to sell me food and antiques.  Maybe that explains it.
