I read this this morning:

Jonathan Haidt, an associate professor of moral psychology at the University of Virginia, argues in an essay this month, “What Makes People Vote Republican?”, that it’s liberals, in fact, who are dangerously blind.

Haidt has conducted research in which liberals and conservatives were asked to project themselves into the minds of their opponents and answer questions about their moral reasoning. Conservatives, he said, prove quite adept at thinking like liberals, but liberals are consistently incapable of understanding the conservative point of view.

Then I read this:

I'm not even getting into the fact that the religious right teaches closed mindedness so it's almost impossible to gain new voters from their pool because people who disagree with them are agents of the devil.


And a comment from the same post:

We remain a country of beer, bubbas, bibles and bigots, who are easily persuaded by a few billionaires to vote in the rich's best interests. It's inescapable.

Like I said, keep 'em coming, Left. Keep 'em coming.

Oh, and since I mentioned this to my mother when I was home and she had never heard of the elitist garbage that Michelle Obama has said, let me point out that she thinks $600 is chump change for buying earrings and that she complained to working women in Ohio that she spends $10,000 a year on her kids' piano and dance.

Honestly, I thought it couldn't get any better than when Teresa Heinz Kerry didn't know what chili was...but apparently it can.

I'd like to point out to Michelle Obama that due to cost constraints in OUR family, I have to teach my kids piano myself.

She should try it. Then she'd only have to spend 7K a year.

I'd like to point out to Michelle Obama that she is truly one of the most pretentious twits to whom I've ever had the displeasure of listening.

Rule #1, Ms. Obama, KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE.

Unfortunately, this couple likes themselves so much and thinks so highly of themselves, they can't imagine why anyone else wouldn't find them engaging, intelligent and enlightened.

By failing to even be able to play the game long enough to find themselves where they wish desperately to be, I question their collective smarts.

Teach piano? Herself? Oooo, noooo. That simply isn't done. Although, if Condoleeza Rice had children, she could certainly teach them--have you ever heard her play?
