THE BRAIN and Politics

John Sexton at Breitbart points out the foolishness of author (of “The Republican Brain”) Chris Mooney’s assertion that there’s something wrong, something unevolved, in the brains of  Republicans.

Alternet’s Joshua Holland explained at Salon.com that

“Research suggests that conservatives are, on average, more susceptible to fear than those who identify themselves as liberals. Looking at MRIs of a large sample of young adults last year, researchers at University College London discovered that “greater conservatism was associated with increased volume of the right amygdala. The amygdala is an ancient brain structure that’s activated during states of fear and anxiety.”

The tagline of his article is “Conservatives’ paranoid alternate-reality can be explained by their brain chemistry — and their media choices.”

So stupid libprogs think that a difference between the brains of Democrats and Republicans means Republicans are crazy neanderthals.  You know what the Conservative Werewolf says to that?

Better a Neanderthal than dead.

How many times have I hypothesized that leftists lack normal self-preservation instincts???  How many freaking times???

Well, it all makes sense now. 😛
