Very cool link! Thanks, Mark!

My Mom's a Republican.
She really really needs to believe that the influential and powerful and rich people who compose the social ladder she's spent her whole life climbing are wise and well-meaning and Good. Evidence to the contrary causes so much cognitive dissonance that she just closes her eyes and continues to give money and votes to the party all her nice socially-prominent friends belong to.

We've had to stop talking politics, something we used to enjoy. She thinks that my mind has been poisoned by irrational Bush hatred. I think that she's no longer capable of political thought, only of tribalism.

We're both sad about it.


Great post. Thanks for sharing.
