There was a study released a few years ago that simply tickled progressives. Researchers said that conservatives exhibited traits associated with psychoticism, they were authoritarian and, conversely, people with higher social desirability tended to be liberals.
For years this research was held up and rubbed in the faces of conservatives.
SCIENTIFIC PROOF THAT CONSERVATIVES ARE MENTAL DEFECTIVES!!!!
Uhhh, the researchers, with their tail between their legs and bibs around their necks, ready to eat their crow, issued a painful correction – because of a coding issue, their findings were completely backwards.
Everything liberals said about conservatives- the insults, the indictments, the pointing and laughing – were actually about them.

I have a liberal, elitist, atheist, snob of a brother that I’ll send this to.
After majoring in social science for two years back in the early 70s I realized it was a crock of crap.
Calling this an Epic Boner doesnt really cut it. It comes close. . .
I didn’t need to wait years to find this out. Just talk to one of those idiots.
But the science was settled! I can’t wait for a similar apology about global warming, after we are buried under 10 ft of snow.
Bet the retraction will be rabbit-holed and the “intelligentsia” will continue to quote the original, erroneous results.
Gee Wally, I guess they discovered that when they point at something with one finger, they actually have three fingers pointing back at themselves!
LIBTARDS projecting AGAIN?!
Here’s my “surprised” face… 🙄
NICE POST, MJA!
I’m relieved. I am an insensitive progressive jerk, yet felt like an elitist miserable old son of a bitch – so was I progressive or conservative? Turns out both are really the same thing.
No, Wyatt Insensitive Progressive Jerk, they are not the same thing. Did you not read the article?
