Is “evolutionary psychology” taking a hike south?

I am running out of totally stupid evo psych stories to link. Since Denis Dutton died, Arts and Letters Daily just hasn’t been featuring them.
Someone there must have a grain of sense and all.
(Like, how the cave man explains why some guys drive drunk just isn’t getting lots of face time any more.)
There’s actually a whole journal about this stuff if you care. (Presumably, you are retired on a fat pension.)
The only thing I’ve ever thought about evolutionary psychology is that it is a self-defeating proposition from the get go.
If “evolution” a million years ago explains modern day politics, that just means no evolution happened. Everything is the same as it was a million years ago with no evolution at all.
Hope you don’t pay taxes for that journal.
