Scratch a Conservative - Find a Coward
I have been saying that for years. When you look at the macho arguments of all these conservatives you really see frightened children, yellow-bellied cowards.
Now scientists say they see a genetic link between how easily someone is scared or startled and how conservative politically they are. They are cowards and will give up quite a lot not to be scared.
You notice it in Republican political ads - they will play ads featuring ominous music, or wolves, or black men, or terrorists, or bombs and try to reinforce the FEAR! factor to get more votes. Conservatives don't want liberty and freedom - they want to be protected because they are scared.
UPDATE - Welcome Houston Chronicle readers. Over a year ago I recommended kicking out Sen. Cornyn as too cowardly to represent the Lone Star state.
