Maybe Kim Jung Il is a Supporter?

Another item for the you knew this already file.

A university researcher has found a correlation between insanity and support for Bush.

From the New Haven Advocate:

The thesis draws on a survey of 69 psychiatric outpatients in three Connecticut locations during the 2004 presidential election. Lohse’s study, backed by SCSU Psychology professor Jaak Rakfeldt and statistician Misty Ginacola, found a correlation between the severity of a person’s psychosis and their preferences for president: The more psychotic the voter, the more likely they were to vote for Bush.

But before you go thinking all your conservative friends are psychotic, listen to Lohse’s explanation.

“Our study shows that psychotic patients prefer an authoritative leader,” Lohse says. “If your world is very mixed up, there’s something very comforting about someone telling you, ‘This is how it’s going to be.’” [Emphasis mine - CK]

I can't wait to see the wedge issues the GOPers will drum up to cater to their new special interest group.

A constitutional amendment to put the "straight" back into straight jackets?
