An Invincible Army of Stalinist Monkey-Men

Via Matt Yglesias... from the Scotsman:
A LEADING scientist has warned a new species of "humanzee," created from breeding apes with humans, could become a reality unless the government acts to stop scientists experimenting.

This is undeniably weird... I guess this is what the president warned us about in his speech where he mentioned "human-animal hybrids" (I thought this was either a favor to Jon Stewart or the work of a speech-writer mole attempting to undermine the administration).
Joe Stalin had the idea first, it appears.
Records suggest that in 1926 the Russian dictator Joseph Stalin decided he wanted to try to create a new species of superhuman.

Stalin reportedly told the scientist: "I want a new invincible human being, insensitive to pain, resistant and indifferent about the quality of food they eat."

they're called creationists... impervious to facts or logic, multiplying in great numbers, willing to fight in wars for little or good reason...
