Skip to comments.DC Infested with Psychopaths [semi-satire]

A study of psychopathy throughout the United States found that the nation's highest concentration of these types of people was in Washington DC. California, New Jersey, and New York finished in second, third, and fourth place for percentage of the population qualifying as psychopaths. The study was conducted by Southern Methodist University Assistant Professor Ryan Murphy.
"The District of Columbia is measured to be far more psychopathic than any individual state in the country," Murphy observed. He speculated that "psychopaths may be drawn to Washington since government offers a robust array of opportunities for individuals to exercise power over others. There are both opportunities for self-enrichment and opportunities to bend others to your will by making laws or regulations that force people to yield to you rather than freely pursue their own well-being."
Democratic National Committee Chairman Thomas Perez belittled the possibility that the study findings might harm his Party's chances in future elections because "very few voters will be aware of this study. The media won't publicize it. It is more likely that Professor Murphy will be denied tenure. That would undermine his credibility and discourage any other eggheads from considering any follow up work on the topic. So, I think our drive to expand and centralize government power in Washington will remain on track."
