MRI Scans Show Differences Between Liberal and Conservative Brains Video

CBS News interviewed researchers who conducted a study of 90 young adults who identified themselves as either liberal or conservative and found that liberals are better at processing conflicting information, whereas conservatives are better at being scared.

This would explain Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and the politics of fear that works so well for the GOP. It also accounts for fact that Democrats can understand that it's possible for the president to have a Muslim sounding name, but still be a Christian who was born in the U.S., while Donald trump is spending  millions of dollars to prove some whacked out Birther conspiracy theory.

Maybe Lady GaGa needs to revise Born This Way to raise awareness of the plight of the poor conservatives whose brains just can't cope with all the conflicting information that's being thrown at them all day long. It's not their fault, they were born afraid.
