On Monday evening, Bill O'Reilly invited Fox News' resident voice of reason Megyn Kelly on "The O'Reilly Factor" to discuss the measles outbreak and the anti-vaxx mania affecting the richest, most irritating Americans.

"In defense of those who have not vaccinated their children," Kelly said, "they were given bad information years ago by a UK study that came out in 1998.""

"But now there's good information," said O'Reilly.

"I wanna say on the record I have three children under the age of six, I have vaccinated all of them on time as the doctor prescribed. Nothing was delayed, we did it as the doctor prescribed."

O'Reilly noted that 90 percent of Americans do the right thing and only 10 percent don't-- but even that 10 percent is enough to endanger the most at-risk population.

"This is going to be a big issue for politicians going forward, because it's about Big Brother," continued Kelly. "But on the other hand, some things do require some involvement of Big Brother."

Come on, anti-vaxxers, when basically everyone except for our most whacked out pundits (Laura Ingraham and Bill Maher, for example) are pro-mandatory vaccinations, don't you think there is something wrong with your stance?
