It Was Always Obvious, But Now It’s a Scientific Fact: Liberals Are Smarter Than Conservatives.

April 11, 2011

A new study published in Biology Today shows that liberals have more gray matter in a part of the brain associated with understanding complexity, while the conservative brain is bigger in the section related to processing fear.  In other words, liberals are smarter than conservatives.

“We found that greater liberalism was associated with increased gray matter volume in the anterior cingulate cortex, whereas greater conservatism was associated with increased volume of the right amygdala,” said Ryota Kanai, the first author of the study.

It could also be that that having a liberal viewpoint makes you smarter than having a conservative one, because the authors still aren’t sure whether the changes in brain physiology are correlative or causative.

Either way, what has for decades obvious to any honest observer but still anecdotal, is now scientific fact.  No wonder the average Teabagger believes the ridiculous crap he does.

Mothers, don’t let your babies grow up to be assholes!
