UC, Berkeley. After recent polls in Mississippi revealed that a vast majority of Republican voters still believe that President Obama is a Muslim, that interracial marriage should be illegal and that evolution is a myth, scientists have been forced to rethink their theories on how evolution functions.
"We have seen the process working, albeit slowly, in Alabama," said Prof. Roy Caldwell, "In Alabama an actual majority of GOP voters do not believe that people involved in interracial marriages should be hung from lampposts. However, a large percentage still seem to be oblivious to the facts on the President's origin and religion."
Asked what he found most surprising about the the recent Mississippi poll, Prof. Caldwell remarked, "That these people are still alive. One would expect that with their sub-par level of intelligence, their pathetic instinct for self-preservation and their inability to adapt and function in a modern world their demise would be sped up significantly, and that they would be replaced with a more vibrant, intelligent species. It is causing us to rethink some firmly-held constructs."
Prof. Caldwell and several of his colleagues are planning an expedition to Mississippi to study the inhabitants first-hand.
"It is quite rare to be able to study a still-existing primitive culture, and although there are certainly inherent dangers, we must seize this opportunity. We hope to begin in a month or so, after an intensive course in language and customs and the usual inoculations.
"We are really very excited, I must tell you. The Mississippi GOP cave art is remarkable."
