I'm a Big Wuss

Ok, I'm the first to admit that I'm a wuss. I don't like sick. or scary. or gory. or violent.  I just don't. My thought? Why in the world would you choose to look at those kinds of things if you could choose good and happy instead? Horror movies? Abominable. Dissecting a worm? Bad idea. But I recognize that my level of tolerance for the dark things is decidedly below average. I am a self-aware wuss.
But I just watched THIS 

and my eyes are opened.

Basically, some psychologists did some studies and discovered that how easily a person is disgusted is correlated to their political leanings: Conservatives are easily disgusted...liberals are really hard to disgust.  Really?  That makes ALL KINDS of sense:

·         Things Liberals DON'T find disgusting:

  •          The enormity and economic implications of the national debt. Nah. That doesn't bug them at all.
  •          Gay people kissing.
  •          Partial Birth Abortion. It's no big deal. I mean women should get to decide what happens to their bodies, right? Don't be so squeamish.
  •          Americans being killed in Benghazi. There are still a lot of Americans left, after all.
  •          Making up a story about a youtube video to cover it up. I mean that was kinda plausible...and if it had worked...
  •          Invoking executive privilege for the Fast and Furious....well. That is a really cool name. I mean like after the movie? That makes it ok.
  •          Biden's condescending smirk. It makes them think fondly of their favorite psychotic auntie.
  •          Lying. In general. C'mon. Everybody does it. We have to know our President will lie to us. That's not disgusting. That's just the world that we live in.
  •          Madonna naked. Well .... ok. I'm sorry. I can't think of why they don't find that disgusting. Madonna fully clothed frightens me.


Should I go on? I'm sure you can think of many more things liberals don't find disgusting.
But one thing still bothers me. Obviously, I am a conservative through and through. But how do you explain Lactose and Walkingdead?

(editors note:  Walkingdead is the product of many years of pain and agony and finds disgusting acts soothing because it's much less worse than his daily life)

  1. The best explanation for me would be years of self loathing has made me numb to all suffering, and I can only glean joy from the mocking of the innocents.

    1. "You find great enjoyment in occasionally professing opinions which in fact are not your own"... Silly.
