My Mama Didn't Raise No Fools

A recent study has shown that Whiny Insecure children grow up to be Conservatives while self-assured and confident children grow up to be Liberals.
Furreal. They tracked 100 kids from birth in a personality study at Berkley for 20 years. They weren't even looking at political leanings. And yet they noticed something very interesting.
Kids who were whiny and fearful (Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads toThe Dark Side (i.e. Republicanism)) grew up rigid, with a narrow world view and an inability to see the complexity of life.
I know, by no means conclusive, but it makes some sense, no?
Would anyone be surprised to find out that W and Cheney were the type to take their toys and leave the sandbox if things weren't going their way when they were little facists? Or that Ann Coulter wouldn't play with any other little girls who didn't let her be Queen at their tea parties, even after they tried to explain to little Ann that tea parties don't even have royalty, and that she couldn't always have her way no matter what and for God's sake Ann, it's probably just an awkward phase and you won't always be this gawky and horsefaced and bitter?
On the other hand, I can't imagine Kerry was too well liked as a kid either. He reeks of mama's boy.
