Are the Kooks Running the Asylum?
From the "mind" of thespian extraordinaire Janeane Garofalo:

Are you a conservative? Then you're a d***, and there's something wrong with your brain. At least that's what "24" actress and comedienne Janeane Garofalo believes.
According to the former Air America radio host, a conservative starts out an “a**hole,” and the politics come later. She asserted, “The reason a person is a conservative republican (sic) is because something is wrong with them...It really is neuroscience.”
In this February 12 interview with the environmentalist celebrity blog Ecorazzi, Garofalo also claimed the “irrational” emotion center of the brain, the limbic system, is what creates conservatives (text reformatted, profanity edited, all bold mine):
The reason a person is a conservative republican is because something is wrong with them. Again, that’s science – that’s neuroscience. You cannot be well adjusted, open-minded, pluralistic, enlightened and be a republican. It’s counter-intuitive. And they revel in their anti-intellectualism. They revel in their cruelty.
I don’t know if you heard me talking to Jenny a while ago, but I was saying that first you have to be an a**hole and then comes the conservatism. You gotta be a d*** to cleave onto their ideology...
Sarah Palin didn't escape Garofalo's ire either. She said Palin is "small-minded and mean-spirited" and “is what the Republican Party has become: obstructionist, contrarians, small-minded, all of these things (sic).”
Garofalo raved that "[t]here's definitely something wrong" with Palin, and she's successful with some Americans "because she represents that lesser segment of the country. It's about people's lesser nature...”
Ri-i-i-ght, Janeane,...let's look at YOUR lesser nature, shall we??
Yeah,..that about fits in with the rest of the Socialists, Marxist, and tax dodgers that populate the Obamanation!
