That's the latest piece of scientific news from the Karl-Rove-endorsed Republican candidate for Senate from the great state of Delaware, Christine O'Donnell.
That really turns up the whack factor to 11. I mean, it's one thing to say that women in the military are a security risk, or that wives should be subservient to their husbands, that the Earth is less than 10,000 years old and that masturbation is an evil. But mice with fully functional human brains? That takes a special kind of crazy.
Obviously, there's a joke to be made here about human beings with fully functional human brains. But the truth is, one of the time-honored functions of fully functional human brains is to believe all sorts of crazy !@#$%.
So let's hear it for Christine O'Donnell: smarter than a scientifically engineered mouse. W00t!
