Fruit flies or Sarah Palin … I know which way I’d vote. Fruit flies have done far more good for the American people than has the Alaskan Governor.

But apparently, Ms. Palin feels that if she doesn’t understand a program, then it’s not worth spending money on … and since her understanding of pretty much everything (except how to field-dress a moose and seduce a redneck) ranks on the low-end of the “slim-to-none” scale, recent comments are not a surprise.

But perhaps we should educate ourselves on the amazing things the humble fruit fly has done … the following video was prepared by Harvard Ph.D. (and ski bunny extraordinaire) Wendy Chao.

Wendy is also Chairman Meow‘s personal assistant and caregiver … so as long as we’re going socialist, let’s go full RED!
