On a radio news-magazine program last night I heard someone described as a "Red-Meat Republican" and I wondered whence this term. Does it refer to "red" as the state-color on an elections-return map? Or are "hard core" Republican party animals considered red meat eaters, while staunch Democrat partisans are vegetarians? (I doubt there are Blue-Meat Democrats!)
It'd be interesting to know whether political party affiliation is at all bloodtype-determined, as well as whether Republicans eat more red meat and Democrats more tofu than their opponents. It's a valid line of enquiry insofar as healthy A's lean toward vegetarianism and healthy O's toward higher red meat consumption. The US population is about 43/43 O and A, with the remaining votes, one could assume, up for grabs on the part of the B and AB minority.
If the beef and shellfish industries should come under fire, will healthy Democrat O's cross the aisle?
