I want to seen the methods and raw data. That looks exceedingly specious to me. In practical terms, I don't see conservatives salivating over the prospect of assassinating a President as libs did in the Bush years. But let's accept it at face value. Liberals then, are more likely to blindly accept leaders they like w/o question, while conservatives have a healthy skepticism, even of our own representatives. That actually sounds accurate.

Liberals, on the other hand, had a stronger physiological reaction to politicians they agreed with than they did to politicians they disliked.

While the participants looked at the photos, researchers monitored their skin conductance, a measure of minute changes in sweating that reveals how excited and emotional someone feels, in this case, about a given image. They found that, consistent with other studies, conservatives responded more strongly to the negative images.

In a second experiment, the researchers repeated the procedure with images of polarizing politicians, including Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Again, they found a political difference: Conservatives responded more strongly to politicians they disagreed with, such as Clinton, than they did to politicians they liked.

A new study (U of Nev) on the biologival differences between cons and libs created collages of positive and negative images and set up an eye-tracking device to follow where participants' gazes fell. They then had 76 college students look at the collages.

In the new study In the new study, 48 adults who were strongly conservative or strongly liberal look at a series of 33 pictures. Some of the pictures were pleasant, such as that of a fluffy bunny. Others, including a picture of a maggot-infested wound and another of a man with a spider on his face, were downright disgusting.

Rather than seethe over President Obama's ongoing sequester-related demagoguery, Crossroads GPS has produced a web ad that duly notes that the cuts were Obama's idea to begin with, and pokes fun at his apocalyptic scare-tactics:


I especially enjoyed the audio clip at the tail end in which Obama laments the exhausting merry-go-round of "manufactured" crises, for which his party is almost
