Science has finally found an answer...

The Wall Street Journal recently figured out that liberals are not making enough babies. Yes, you heard right. Babies.

...liberals have a big baby problem: They're not having enough of them, they haven't for a long time, and their pool of potential new voters is suffering as a result.
According to the 2004 General Social Survey, if you picked 100 unrelated politically liberal adults at random, you would find that they had, between them, 147 children. If you picked 100 conservatives, you would find 208 kids. That's a "fertility gap" of 41%.

So, what we're seeing here is that liberals are spending way too much time picketing, campaigning, and well, whining and moaning about the ills of the world, so much so that they're not getting enough "quality time" with the Mrs...or Mr....

And of course, the last line is a keeper:

Democratic politicians may have no more babies left to kiss.
