I've Been Saying That Conservatism Was A Disease For Years  
Well, I can't wait to see if the Republicans have anythying else to say about this.

A study funded by the US government has concluded that conservatism can be explained psychologically as a set of neuroses rooted in "fear and aggression, dogmatism and the intolerance of ambiguity". The report's four authors linked Hitler, Mussolini, Ronald Reagan and the rightwing talkshow host, Rush Limbaugh, arguing they all suffered from the same affliction. The authors also peer into the psyche of President George Bush, who turns out to be a textbook case. The telltale signs are his preference for moral certainty and frequently expressed dislike of nuance.

Republicans are demanding to know why the psychologists behind the report, Political Conservatism as Motivated Social Cognition, received $1.2m in public funds for their research from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. Apparently, they haven't even bothered attempting to refute the evidence. ;)

You gotta open your minds, kids. It's good for you. Stagnation is death.

I'll be waiting at the border with a baseball bat and a half-empty bottle of vodka.

There are enough liberal leftwing dipshits in this country as is. We don't want anymore of your country's garbage.
