Well that ignores what I said, but oh well. The fact that you mentioned Hitler's was only "on some level" makes me believe you're not quite grasping this. I think Hitler, Napolean, most dictators etc are 95% insecurities starting from childhood.

Eh, it's been pretty civil so far...hopefully it'll stay that way. My thoughts on the study...I think lots of factors go into why some people support these sorts of things. Insecurity about one's self may be one of the things, but who knows.

*In the meantime, pats 80sU2isBest on the head* Good boy. You have learned well .

oh for Pete's sake people, this is supposed to be a somewhat lighthearted thread. read the article -- the study isn't making any sweeping political claims, just showing a correlation between certain proclivities that we can easily (though perhaps not accurately) code as Red State and linked that to a feelings of masculine insecurity.

i do think it's entirley plausible that there are different notions of masculinity between urban and rural America.

but i think we can all agree with absolute certainty that this study proves that Blue State men have much larger penises than Red State men.

What is lighthearted about sweeping generalizations?

It would be like Michelangelo having a son - who, as though by a miracle, ALSO became a world renowned artist!

Imagine if Bono's son grew up to also be a lead singer in the biggest rock band in the world. Wouldn't that be really implausible?

As I said, remarkable.

Did anyone mention 'monarchy'?
My response "Georgie is a President not a King" was in response to what Irvine has said. My response to your post did not mention anything about a monarchy either.
