McCain and Autism

I know this is an older article but I couldn't resist commenting and sharing...

McCain gave his opinion on Autism at a conference in a Phoenix airport. Yes McCain, autism is on the rise. But is it because of a preservative in vaccines? Well there is certainly no "strong evidence" of this as he claims. In fact, it is a hotly debated topic in the field of psychology, parenting, and special education. Now, I doubt that Autism research is a voting issue for most people, but McCain is taking a fairly strong side on what I would consider a hot topic. I'm going to keep my eyes and ears open for any other comments he makes on Autism, but I'll settle for something on education as well.
