Harvard Law School Professor Cass Sunstein WRITES HERE of a fascinating study conducted by Philip Fernbach and a team of academics at the University of Colorado whereby political extremists are turned into comparative moderates:
Their central finding is that if you ask people to explain exactly why they think as they do, they discover how much they don’t know — and they become more humble and therefore more moderate.
You can’t make up stuff like THIS:
Today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 15,056, an all-time record. For one conservative group, this can only mean one thing: it’s time to impeach President Obama.
That was the message Capitol Hill Daily, a conservative publication based out of Baltimore, sent to Citizen United’s listserv today. They accused President Obama of “wreck[ing] the stock market” and asked readers to take a poll about whether he should be impeached as a result.
The satirical political blog Wonkette REPORTS that certain wingnuts are plowing new ground in the fertile fields of Obamaphobia:
Thanks to the completely sane coverage at the “Christian News Service,”we know that the Chicago thug tweeted a brief message in response to the death of fellow Chicago thug Roger Ebert within 30 minutes of the news of Ebert’s death, while it took an unpardonable two hours for the White House to issue a statement in response to the death of Margaret Thatcher. Even worse, the White House Twitter feed did not link to the emailed statement until 40 minutes after …
Wingnuts still pretending that Obama’s use of Teleprompters is something their heroes would never do
The tweet above from Sen. Charles Grassley, the Iowa Republican, is typical of the right-wing meme that Barack Obama isn’t bright enough to speak in public without a Teleprompter. (Oh, and he probably got into those fancy Ivy League schools on affirmative action, just like the rest of those undeserving minorities.)
But, of course, Grassley is wrong about Romney not having used a Teleprompter for his convention speech. He did (see HERE). So did his wife (see HERE). So did Paul Ryan (see HERE). So did virtually every other speaker at the GOP conclave.
