Does Rain Favor Republicans?

That's been the conventional wisdom for generations. We've always thought it was quite the compliment, as it suggests that Republican voters are more committed, passionate, and less likely to be fair weather friends.
But actually, it has been studied. Rain does not favor either party. These means we can't rely on Karl Rove's secret cloud-seeding program here in Ohio.
So go vote.
UPDATE: Nix Guy sets us straight. Another academic study says that rain does help Republicans. But probably not as much as John Kerry suggesting the troops are stupid.
