At a time when it seems good news is rare from the medical field, researchers at Harvard and UC San Diego have announced that they've discovered the "liberal gene."
The gene, which affects dopamine receptors (which we assume means making people more receptive to dope and/or dopes) is significantly correlated with political ideology...especially in people who were popular and socially active in high school. Or, to put it in less politically-correct terms, "people who were elitists and ran in cliques."
Happily, identifying the gene means that there is now real hope for a "cure for the common liberal" in the not-too-distant future.
To be specific, this coming Tuesday.
