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.
No fair blaming Neanderthals for Rush and the rest of his ilk.
Is it just me, or does your Neanderthal look suspiciously like Alec Baldwin?
Click on the picture, and you tell me.
Damn. I’ve been refuted by irrefutable photographic evidence.
Shit. Now they’re gonna have to remake the Flintstones.
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.
I thought I understood evolution, but now…not so much. From Neanderthal to reptile. It works, for them, but Darwin shudders. 8)
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?
And apparently Andy Borowitz reads my blog. Or else Great Minds Think Alike. 8)
Yep. I read it here first. He’s a copycat.
BTW, I tried to add Rush’s shit-eating smile to the pic, but…not so good. He looks a bit constipated now.
…and your comment was my 7500th one! The good news is you won the Kewpie doll! The bad news is it looks like Rush Limerger.
