News Flash: Liberal Gene Found (Can The Cure Be Far Away?)

This is not a joke.  I always thought that liberalism was a mental disorder as some of my friends would testify.  This may turn out to be the single most significant medical breakthrough in human history. Scientists from Harvard and University of San Diego (rife with appropriate human subjects) have isolated the "liberal" dopamine receptor gene called DRD4.

This gene apparently provides a predisposition to this widespread mental disorder, which affects approximately every two in a typical family of five. According to the scientists, this predisposition is triggered into full-blown liberalism by excessive social interaction during adolescence...for example as occurred with the baby-boomers during the era of "Free Love".

I propose we start "liberalism awareness week", modeled after breast cancer awareness month.  Who knows, maybe we can find a cure.

Imagine a world without "victimized" classes, without special interest organizations having the words "green" or "justice" in their titles, with no demands for entitlements and manufactured "rights", and where no one thinks we can borrow our way out of debt.  Now, that would be my kind of world.
