In keeping with my delusional pretense that this blog is read by more than one person (my girlfriend, if you want to be specific) I’ve decided to link some interesting things out there.
First: these amazing links concerning new revelations about the Supreme Court decision, Bush v. Gore. Apparently Justice Souter has been so haunted by his complicity in George Bush’s presidential win, that he nearly resigned over it, and still weeps whenever he thinks about it. You can read about it on thinkprogress and the SF Examiner.
Second: did you ever wonder what the hell is wrong with the crazy &%$*$#s who support Bush and company, no matter how much they lie? This is a great little text written by psychologist Bob Altemeyer, who spent the last 40 years or so doing field studies and experiments on the “authoritarian” mind. The results are astounding, and the source reliable; John Dean relied extensively on his research for the recently published “Worse Than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush”.
