Interesting Observations

The Toronto Star, via the Drudge Report, has a story today on how whiny, insecure kids grow up to be Conservatives, while confident, resilient, self-reliant kids mostly grew up to be liberals.

Put another way, Conservatives experienced childhood when they were children; Liberals, while initially precocious, never grow up.

Put yet another way, whiny, insecure kids will eventually grow up and become Conservatives, while people who don't whine as children will do nothing but whine as adults.

Of course, the study was done on children in Berserkely, where their idea of patriotism is not allowing the flag to touch the ground while you burn it, and that's pretty much all you need to know about the biases of the so-called researchers.
