Bush Nuts
Are George W. Bush lovers certifiable?
Yes.

But now science confirms why:
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.
[...]
"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.'"

Science?

I can name three things wrong with that "science." Can you?

Jason,

Have you read his thesis?

By all means please do a study of your own and we will be happy to publish it if it meets the scientific standards of the report in the post.

Regardless of your opinion, I have no doubt that psychotics want a 'strong leader' and don't have the mental chops to see that the emperor has no clothes.
