Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is made up
Do people really only hear what they want to hear? Yes, and brain scans confirm this: Study Ties Political Leanings to Hidden Biases
Emory University psychologist Drew Westen put self-identified Democratic and Republican partisans in brain scanners and asked them to evaluate negative information about various candidates. Both groups were quick to spot inconsistency and hypocrisy -- but only in candidates they opposed.

When presented with negative information about the candidates they liked, partisans of all stripes found ways to discount it, Westen said. When the unpalatable information was rejected, furthermore, the brain scans showed that volunteers gave themselves feel-good pats -- the scans showed that "reward centers" in volunteers' brains were activated. The psychologist observed that the way these subjects dealt with unwelcome information had curious parallels with drug addiction as addicts also reward themselves for wrong-headed behavior.

Another study presented at the conference, which was in Palm Springs, Calif., explored relationships between racial bias and political affiliation by analyzing self-reported beliefs, voting patterns and the results of psychological tests that measure implicit attitudes -- subtle stereotypes people hold about various groups.

That study found that supporters of President Bush and other conservatives had stronger self-admitted and implicit biases against blacks than liberals did.

Condi declares war on the State Dept!
All I can say after reading this Ralph Peters piece is "go Condi!" For once, I'm enthusiastic about something she's doing.
RICE REFORMS FOR STATE DEPT.OSAMA'S latest plea for attention suckered the media into blowing last week's real story: Secretary of State Condeleeza Rice's declaration of war on her dysfunctional department.

In a speech at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, where students are deformed into diplomats, Condi cancelled the tea party. Her message was revolutionary and essential. As a result, she may go down in history as the SecState most hated by Foggy Bottom bureaucrats.

Here's what "Killjoy Condi" had to say:
Read the whole thing. This is the kind of news I've been waiting for ever since Miss Rice took office, and gives me hope that Foggy Bottom can be cleared up a little, and transformed into an effective force in the defense of American interests.

Ben Stein: "Saints in Armor"
Ben Stein (in the American Spectator) responds to a disgraceful article by one Joel Stein (in the LA Times). He says it all right here:
Do I support men and women who are fighting Nazis who call themselves insurgents or Islamic militants? Do I support men and women who offer up their lives to fight the very same terrorists who killed three thousand totally guiltless Americans on 9/11? Do I support the troops who have more moral decency in their toes than I do or anyone I know does in our whole bodies? I support them, pray for them, am humbled just to be on the same planet with them. With every morning I wake up, every meal I eat, every walk I take in freedom, every night I sleep in peace, I ask God to look after the men and women who guard the ramparts of this blessed island of peace and decency called America. Without them, we would be nothing. Without them, Joel Stein would have his head sawed off. Saints in armor is what I call them and what they are. They are God's gifts to a wayward world.
Armed Liberal, too, has a great reply to Stein, invoking TR.

Millions of Muslims with hurt feelings
Two employees of a Denmark-based food company were beaten by angry customers in Saudi Arabia over some cartoons of Prophet Mohammed that appeared in a Danish newspaper. Elsewhere, Palestinians seized the EU offices in Gaza demanding an apology because they were offended by the cartoons, Libya and Saudi Arabia closed their embassies to protest the cartoons, Danish troops were targeted in an attack in Iraq by terrorists who don't even like cartoons and in the Emirates, the Minister of Justice and Islamic Affairs called the cartoons "cultural terrorism".

I too find some cartoons offensive, like the ones showing Jews eating babies, and I also find Hezbollah offensive; not only they hurt my feelings with the mean things they say about Americans and Jews but they kill people too. All this time I didn't know how to express my displeasure but now it's obvious what I have to do: I'll go beat up the Lebanese owner of the deli where I buy my olives and coffee. And after I beat him up, I will also demand a discount on the baklava, $1 a piece is an outrage! Protests Over Muhammad Cartoon Grow

Vicious Moron El Baradei calls on US to give Iran reactors
Giving Iran nuclear reactors is a logical move how? Of course, it's become pretty clear that El Baradei is on the mullahs' side.
DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) -- U.N. nuclear chief Mohamed ElBaradei on Friday called on the United States to provide Iran with nuclear reactors and urged Tehran to declare a moratorium on enriching uranium for at least eight years.

ElBaradei said that amount of time would enable the country to earn the confidence of the international community that it was really interested in nuclear energy - not nuclear weapons.

Your head isn't covered now but it will be. You can drive now but you won't be able to later.
Mariam Farhat is known as the "Mother of Martyrs" because three of her sons died while attacking or preparing to attack Israelis. She got elected on the Hamas ticket, for her campaign she used a video where she's shown helping her 17-year-old son prepare for a suicide attack which killed him and five Israelis. Mrs. Farhat said in an interview that her first priority in parliament would be to push for a law requiring all Palestinian women to wear the hijab. Women of Gaza fear for their freedoms under new religious regime
Naila Ayesh, a secular married woman who frequently goes about Gaza in Western clothes, has already noticed a subtle change since Hamas's election victory last Wednesday.

"You will hear even kids saying to you, 'your head isn't covered now but it will be. You can drive now but you won't be able to later." She relates, too, how a woman friend described telling a neighbour that her child attended Gaza City's American school. "What, you send her to the crusader school?" the shocked neighbour replied. "Why don't you send her to the Sheikh Ahmed Yassin school [named after the late Hamas founder] where she can learn languages as well as the Koran?" Ms Ayesh added: "All this happened before but it's been happening more since the election."
