How the conservative mind processes data:

Data or facts align with ideology = data is valid.

Data or facts conflict with ideology = data is bogus.

And now we have the Dems, all up in arms over Jim Lehrer, the format, Romney, whatever. They are hysterical. So angry, because a stuffed shirt/empty chair got his prissy butt kicked in a debate.

Well guess what Sunshine? Virtually all of the dat for four years show that your guy is an even bigger failure than the failure that proceeded him.

Get over it. Move On.ORG

We're all wired to have it, and there's probably some remote evolutionary advantage to it.

But the intellectually honest among us strive to recognize and suppress it.

I say I have done this in the past. I do not say in the "present". I have decided that it is stupid to extend courtesy to people who have no intention to answer in kind. So now, if I disagree, I simply let it be known however it comes out.

Just like you liberals do.
