And it’s been scientifically proven----

---that your support of George W. Bush is inversely proportional to your sanity. The “study” in question, appearing as a press release ahead of publication, is being lapped up by the credulous liberal blogosphere. Orac on the other hand, himself not a big fan of George W., applies his usual dose of hard nosed skepticism, citing data mining, poor design and failure to consider alternate hypotheses, concluding that this study “…sucks. And sucks hard.”

To that I’ll just add that there might be a wee bit of a conflict of interest here---“science” with an agenda, perhaps. At least it was disclosed. Although the author describes himself as a “Reagan revolution fanatic” he believes George W. is “beyond the pale.”
