New research has shown that there is a reason why some men become “liberal.” No, it’s not the fact that they have a distant father and a domineering mother. No, it’s not the fact that they have a pretty low I.Q. and they have an overwhelming urge to fit in with the uber-liberals. No, it’s not just that they love their Humanities professor and his turtle-neck sweater and corduroys. It’s also this. (And in Gramps’ case, aka “12.50 cc moped boy’s case”, it IS the turtle-neck sweater and the corduroys).
