My favorite St.Louis columnist, Kevin Horrigan, has another excellent column. This time he tries to explain all those damn conservatives.
This is the fourth in an occasional series of essays that attempts to answer the scientific question: “What’s up with all the conservatives around here?” The first one suggested historical reasons for Missouri being a hotbed of right-wing activism: Tea Partiers, conspiracists, militias, birthers, global-warming deniers, Ed Martin voters, etc. It’s because activists tend to sprout in places where lots of transplanted southern and rural white folks come face-to-face with a modern urban environment. The second one suggested that it’s really not conservatives’ fault that they’re the way the are. Some people just don’t have a certain chemical receptor in their brains, so they can’t absorb oxytocin, a brain chemical important for empathy. The third one quoted an evolutionary psychologist at the London School of Economics whose theory is that liberals and atheists are farther along the evolutionary scale than conservatives and religious believers. I stress that all of these merely are theories. I just pass them along in the interest of enlightened public discourse. But every time I write one of these, I get a lot of angry mail from conservatives. But conservatives will like this fourth theory of explaining why they are the way they are, even though it’s based on evolutionary theory, a concept in which many conservatives don’t believe. Jacob M. Vigil of the University of New Mexico reports that Republican sympathizers in a 2008 study group reported having more “good friends” in their social circles (an average of 12.91) than Democratic sympathizers (9.46). This can be explained by the fact that conservatives are oriented toward dominant behavior, he says, so they’re not afraid of having a lot of friends and associates.

The Chief Community Organizer of the US has had his liberal credentials bolstered by the Nobel Committee. While Barrack Hussein Obama intends to help the cause of world peace, he has yet to do anything concrete to advance the cause. Apparently, good intentions are enough for the Nobel Committee. At least when they gave the peace prize to Jimmy Carter, he had negotiated a peace treaty in the Middle East. (How did that work out?) The Obama has made speeches about ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and closing Guantanamo. He has also made speeches about not ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and not closing Guantanamo. While two wars, in which The Obama is the Commander In Chief, continue unabated, his good intentions are enough to earn him a Nobel Peace Prize – the Nobel Committee should be ashamed. Is it possible for their standards to get any lower?

After a mere 6 months, the American electorate is beginning to realize what a major mistake they made by electing as President a Marxist true believer who has only community activist experience. I’m a little shocked that the honeymoon has begun to sour so quickly. We can only hope that there are enough sensible people in Congress to stonewall Obama’s future plans.
