Re: science as the left's real religion. As Dennis makes clear, anything which gives the Dems votes is their real religion. This chops and changes depending on the circumstances. Eg. Dems went apoplectic with the 3 cases of waterboarding ("torture") under Bush, but kill via drones suspected militants with gay abandon. What is the number now? 2 500+? Silence. And the hundreds of innocents killed in the bombing? Silence. Gitmo? Silence. Etc etc. The article meshes in timely fashion with Sowell's article on Dem/Left facsism.

Conservativism is right-wing.

Liberalism is left-wing.

The quotation of the week last week had to be that of Harvard professor Daniel E. Lieberman in an opinion piece for the New York Times.

Lieberman, a professor of human evolutionary biology, was among those who publicly defended New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's plan to ban the sale of sugared soft drinks in cups larger than 16 ounces.

And he did so using, of all things, evolution.

Now, we all know that humans have always needed -- or evolved to need -- carbohydrates for energy. So how could evolution argue for Mayor Bloomberg's ban...
