Defective Brains Make the Elderly Too Racist to Vote for Obama

How is a moonbat propagandist to explain why older Americans — who have been around the block enough times not to fall for empty hype, having seen dangerous demagogues come and go before — tend not to support the Obamessiah? By denouncing them as racists, of course. But it’s not their fault; they have defective brains:

Older white voters heavily favored Sen. Hillary Clinton over Sen. Barack Obama during the Democratic primary season, and national polls indicate that group now leans toward Sen. John McCain by 10 percentage points or more.

Pollsters and political scientists cannot pinpoint how much of that anti-Obama sentiment may be related to racial prejudice. But sociologists say their research indicates that implicit racial biases influence the voting decisions of many Americans of all ages — and that, for very basic physiological reasons related to the aging of their brains, many older citizens may be unable to suppress their prejudicial impulses, whether at the family dinner table or in the privacy of a voting booth.

According to an Australian professor named William Von Hippel, “as the brain’s frontal lobe begins to atrophy with age, elderly adults exhibit greater social inappropriateness and increased stereotyping and prejudice.”

How else to explain why our wise elders don’t want to turn the country over to an unqualified left-wing radical who quite obviously does not wish it well?

Further medical breakthroughs will no doubt explain how any resistance to Obamania can be traced to brain malfunctions, even among the young. The government will soon be huge enough to offer full-time treatment for all who require it.
