CBS Sunday Morning did a piece on humor this morning. The piece notes research showing that enjoying a joke involves the brain's emotional regions, but getting a joke relies on the parts of the brain involved in analytical problem solving. Guess that's why liberals always seem to have no sense of humor.
That research may also be related to something else. If you want to understand American politics, you must remember one thing:
- Conservatives think liberals are wrong.
- Liberals think conservatives are evil.
