What do you get when you mate and extreme Republican with an extreme Democrat?  Ron Paul?

The problem with tea party Republicans is not a lack of breeding - its a lack of an education...

  1.  Only a multi-generation Mendelian experiment can provide insight into the answer.

  2.  You've obviously never been to the states of West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, and/or Arkansas.  I can testify, from direct, multi-year, personal experience the Virulent Stupidity Gene is rampant in the west part of North Carolina AND the lack of education is considered a positive condition, devotedly to be wished.

I've actually hitch hiked as far as North Carolina - in 1973 - which was as far as I felt safe with my long hair and beard. I seem to remember acquiring a mock Nixon re-election poster which asked "Why change Dicks in the middle of a screw: Vote Nixon in '72" and listened to Neil Young in a loft where some students had kindly put me up.

I was being nice.  Otherwise I'd have had to include Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and ... I'm sorry to say ... New Mexico.

Large swatches of the central plains and inter-mountain west need professional help:
