Bad case of brain grangrene going on there, someone better call Obamacare quick!
That pic comes from a catchy little tune by Sum 41. It's called The Hell Song. I don't why they called it that, since it's a very happy little song, that I'll be glad to post for you. With some PNW scenes...
The article of how he handled racism at young age shows an uncommon level of awareness and intelligence beyond his age or perhaps because of it, IDK.
Also, his innate coolness and extreme awesomeness! *
I remember the RWNJs claiming that since 'Obama had been bullied, he isn't capable of being the Commander in Chief.'
They said that meant he's gay...
That was right up there with their dreckt about how blacks and whites use different hemispheres of their brains. To which I said, well, if the white side of our leader's brains got us into this mess, I'm game for a change...
They also claimed that is the case for males and females, too. There are some truths with their mythology as explained here, a good read:
Why the Left-Brain Right-Brain Myth Will Probably Never Die
That explains a lot of what is wrong with RWNJ brains, though:
...Some studies have indeed shown that the right hemisphere seems to be involved more when we have an Aha! flash of insight. For instance, one study found that activity was greater in the right hemisphere when participants solved a task via insight, rather than piecemeal. Another showed that brief exposure to a puzzle clue was more useful to the right hemisphere, than the left, as if the right hemisphere were nearer the answer.
But insight is just one type of creativity. Telling stories is another. One of the most fascinating insights from the split-brain studies was the way the left hemisphere made up stories to explain what the right hemisphere was up to – what Gazzaniga dubbed the “interpreter phenomenon”. For example, in one study, a patient completing a picture-matching task used their left hand (controlled by the right hemisphere) to match up a shovel with an image of a snow storm (shown only to the right hemisphere). The patient was then asked why he’d done this. But his left hemisphere (the source of speech) didn’t admit to not knowing. Instead, it confabulated, saying that he’d reached for the shovel to clear out the chicken coop (the picture shown to the left hemisphere was of a bird’s foot).
Of course, they always made their claims without citing any studies, you know, that 'fact free' universe they live in.
Sadly, their conclusions about Obama based upon their pseudo-science were likewise negative.
Their first thing was that blacks used one side of the brain and whites used the other. Thus he was 'unstable by nature and not fit to be President, because he's half white and half black, so his brain is at war with itself,' or something like that...
Additionally, they ascribed a form of femininity to the black side of the brain, thus making him highly emotional and not fit to lead the country, again. I don't who should be more insulted by that concept, blacks or women.
Or perhaps we should LOL...
And they said that meant he's doubly gay...
They sure have got a thing about 'teh gay,' 'the blahs,' and 'them wimmins...'
