let the inbreeding begin

John Stossel enters a new level of asshattery

It's the sort of myth that leads to stupid laws. Half the states in America have banned cousin marriage, but there's no good reason for it. You can marry your cousin and have perfectly intelligent kids.

Take Albert Einstein — was he intelligent enough for you? His parents were cousins, and he married his cousin. So did Charles Darwin and Queen Victoria. Worldwide, 20% of all married couples are cousins.
I guess Stossel missed those days in his History and Science classes that covered what happens when cousins do a little more than kiss.
