This just in...

Filed under "you needed a study for this?":
Republicans are significantly more likely than Democrats or independents to rate their mental health as excellent, according to data from the last four November Gallup Health and Healthcare polls. Fifty-eight percent of Republicans report having excellent mental health, compared to 43% of independents and 38% of Democrats. This relationship between party identification and reports of excellent mental health persists even within categories of income, age, gender, church attendance, and education.

I'm sure they didn't even evaluate for BDS, since it didn't made the DSM-V...

I think it would have been more useful to break people down into "liberal", "conservative", and "moderate", since the parties aren't particularly good proxies the past couple years. I'm surprised there aren't more clinically depressed Americans, the way the Left insists you're either a poor oppressed victim and nothing you do can change your life except wait for government handouts, or you're an evil oppressor of faith and/or pallor and/or testes, and either way you're destroying the Earth and the poor polar bears simply by being alive.

P.S. Zombie has a lovely gallery of "Unflattering Pictures of Hillary Clinton." I won't be sleeping tonight...*shudder*
