RUSH: There’s a study that has just been completed from the American Journal of Political Science, and it has revealed that conservatives and liberals smell different. Now, I have known this for quite a while. Because, as you know, I know liberals like every square inch of my glorious naked body, not just the back of my hand. I know them.
“The researchers, led by Brown University political scientist Rose McDermott, found that conservatives and liberals smell dissimilar. While the difference is small, it is apparently significant enough that we subconsciously prefer the scent of those who vote like we do. ‘It appears nature stacks the deck to make politically similar partners more attractive to each other in unconscious ways,’ the researchers wrote.”
Now, this does not explain the Carville-Matalin union. But that may be an outlier and an exception. But did you know there were people studying this? Have you ever been able to smell a liberal, Snerdley, and realize by virtue of what you’re smelling, that they are different from you and therefore might be liberal?
(interruption) “Only in New York.”
Hmm. Interesting. When I read this story, I started thinking, “How do the liberals I know smell?” I said, “Is there anything common?” And then I remembered, “No, it’s all subconscious here.” The researchers say you act on it subconsciously. You don’t really know. It bears further study and research.
