Well, That Explains Rush

We all have Neanderthal genes in us, apparently some more than others.

In a significant advance, the researchers mapped most of the Neanderthal genome—the first time that the heredity of such an ancient human species has been reliably reconstructed. The researchers, able for the first time to compare the relatively complete genetic coding of modern and prehistoric human species, found the Neanderthal legacy accounts for up to 4% of the human genome among people in much of the world today.

So sometime in our past, Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens interbred. Which probably explains the line of DNA resulting in Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck and quite a few Republicans.

  1. Actually, I always thought that Andre the Giant was evidence that our ancestors had mated with Neanderthals.

    As for blaming Neanderthal DNA in us for the likes of Rush Limbaugh and his ilk, I don’t know if we know enough about the status of women in Neanderthal society. On the other hand, a more plausible explanation for Right Wing Authoritarians (RWA’s) is that beneath their human exterior, they are really reptiles.


  2. Wow! Interracial marriage is an old tradition, huh?

    As for current representatives of Neanderthal genes, Who would’ve thought that Sarah Palin’s “problem” could be so easily explained, eh?

  3. And apparently Andy Borowitz reads my blog.

    Yep. I read it here first. He’s a copycat.
