Neuroscience expert reveals link between defective brain and Conservatism!

Recently Janeane Garafolo, actress, political activist and now apparent expert neuroscientist revealed her findings in an interview with

Ms. Garafolo said about Republicans and Conservatives:

“Their policies have destroyed us and most of the world – that’s a fact not an opinion. Their policies of deregulation, pre-emptive strikes, unmitigated support for Israel to the detriment of the Israelis, Palestinian’s, Americans, the British. Every single policy that “conservative republicans” have put forth since Reagan has destroyed us. And we affect most of the world, so why do they still get a say? That’s what blows my mind. It’s almost like self-flagellation or masochism in some way. We keep going to that portion. They are NEVER going to compromise. The thing is that the more you give in to something like that, the more they take advantage.

The reason a person is a conservative republican is because something is wrong with them. Again, that’s science – that’s neuroscience. You cannot be well adjusted, open-minded, pluralistic, enlightened and be a republican. It’s counter-intuitive. And they revel in their anti-intellectualism. They revel in their cruelty.
I don’t know if you heard me talking to Jenny a while ago, but I was saying that first you have to be an asshole and then comes the conservatism. You gotta be a dick to cleave onto their ideology.”

Come on, Janeane, tell us how you really feel! Did a conservative sodomize her at some point in her childhood? I have heard that she is a child of Conservative parents. Does Ms. Garafolo have transferred hatred for conservatives because she hates her parents? Maybe it’s a psychological issue she has never dealt with?

On Sarah Palin:

“Probably what most people think about Sarah Palin. She’s small-minded and mean-spirited. It has nothing to do with gender — I don’t give a shit about her gender — she is what the Republican Party has become: obstructionist, contrarians, small-minded, all of these things. She just happens to be attractive. There’s definitely something wrong with her. She’s lacking in so many areas. Of course she’s successful with a segment of the country because she represents that lesser segment of the country. It’s people’s lesser nature – their human frailty. You know whatever’s wrong with them is what she is about.”

So what’s wrong with Sarah Palin?

“It’s not even nutty. It really is neuroscience. I truly believe that it has something to do with their limbic brain. I really believe that some people’s limbic brain dominates more than others. Our limbic brain controls all our emotions and it causes us to be irrational. Our limbic brain goes into action when we’re ecstatic, frightened, when we’re having sex. I really believe that if a neuroscientist examined the brain of somebody who identified as a conservative, they would find it’s wired differently.”

It’s all clear now. Political views are caused by defective organic neurological disorder! Perhaps we should get the AMA to list conservatism as a mental illness. Wow, I never knew! According to her definition this is a disorder or disability; Ms. Garafolo should, as a good and proud Liberal, fight for government sponsored disability and treatment for Conservatism.

Well, if talking out of ones ass were an Olympic Sport, Ms.Garafolo would be the Michael Phelps of the sport.

Apparently Ms. Garafolo feels that anyone who differs from her political stance is mentally defective. Elitist, narcissistic, and ignorant, are the labels I would attach to the petite, troll like Ms. Garafolo. She fails to see that it was conservative values that kept her clothed fed and provided for in her childhood; yeah she’s “open-minded”, “pluralistic” and “well adjusted”.

Can anyone who spews this kind of vitriol be considered enlighten or intelligent?

Not in my book, and for me that’s the one that counts.

File Janeane Garafolo under “Just another ignorant left wing ideologue.” Neuroscience indeed.

The Dark Knight

This summer has been a good summer for superhero movies. The two Marvel Comic entries, Ironman and The Incredible Hulk were great fun, entertaining and well done. Even with all the hype over The Dark Knight, I still thought Ironman was the best of the superhero flicks. having said that:

I went to see the DC Comics entry The Dark Knight film yesterday. I must say that this was the best of  all of The Batman films. Partly because of the updated material and social parallels it paints of the dilemma facing our society today; but mostly because of the acting, action and visual images.

Let’s face it; Heath Ledger was brilliant as the Joker. After seeing his performance, I’m actually saddened by his death. This rarely happens with me with regard to Hollywood types especially when substance abuse or misuse is the contributing factor to their death. Ledger managed to create a believable and disturbing image of a complex villianous character that blends cunning, wit and pure maniacal evil.

While “The Joker” may have stolen the show the rest of the cast also delivered outstanding performances. Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Aaron Eckhart and smaller roles by Eric Roberts and Anthony Michael Hall all were all great in their parts.

I really don’t want to give away any plot lines or spoilers I will say I enjoyed the ride, was entertained and will simply recommend this movie for both Batman fans and fans of any good action/adventure movie.
