If Whiners Become Conservatives...

Then the soft ones must become crazed Liberals. Michelle Malkin points out an example in her latest column at Jewish World Review. She comments on a young girl, Charlotte Church.
Several years ago, I wrote a column praising a sweet and talented Welsh girl named Charlotte Church. A singer of arias and sacred songs, she possessed an uncommon sense of modesty and decorum in the skin-baring age of Britney Spears. Charlotte had the face and voice of an angel. Her signature piece was "Pie Jesu" (Blessed Jesus). Her favorite keepsake was a rosary blessed by the pope.

Or so she said at the time. Now, alas, the once-charming Charlotte is the new face of skankdom. And you won't believe what she's saying about the pope.

The 20-year-old entertainer has rebelled against the wholesome image that brought her fame, fortune and worldwide respect as a rare role model for young girls. She has traded in "Pie Jesu" for "Crazy Chick" — a lousy pop anthem even Ashlee Simpson wouldn't be caught performing. Charlotte's gone from pure-hearted to pure crap. These days, she drinks, she smokes, she curses, she fights, she parties, and she tries very, very hard to shock and offend — like a trashier Lindsay Lohan, only with better pipes.

One person interviewed by The Daily Mail said it best.
"This woman may have had the voice of an angel in the past but now she has the foul mouth of a sewer rat."

So if the whiny kids grow up to be conservative, do the quiet ones become crazed liberals?

And as a side note, I have found a fundemental flaw in the Berkley study. The people they were studying were at first toddlers of age 3 or 4, then later at the age of 23 or 24. And as an atendee of a college, you find that people in the demographic of 18-25 tend to lean more liberal, then afterwards the demographic shifts the other way.
So if you have 70% of the "quiet kids" turn liberal, and 30% turn Conservative, then have a 50-50 split among the whiny kids, the study will show that more quiet kids turned liberal than loud kids.
Hot air has the study here, but can some one please explain to me how to analyze the data? The article doesn't elaborate on how to read the QAC Number and the decimal numbers.
