I always knew Madison lefties stunk


As Newt Gingrich once said about the Occupy Movement protesters, “Go get a job after you take a bath.” According to a new study, a person’s politics may dictate the way they smell:

In the study, 125 participants rated the attractiveness of smells from strong liberals and strong conservatives, but the participants couldn’t see the individuals and didn’t know anything about their political views.

“People could not predict the political ideology of others by smell if you asked them, but they differentially found the smell of those who aligned with them more attractive,” said Dr. Rose McDermott, lead author of the study. “So I believe smell conveys important information about long-term affinity in political ideology that becomes incorporated into a key component of subconscious attraction.”

Oh, I’m guessing we can tell a Madison protester’s politics at some distance.
