Astonishing comments on this article by John Tierney, about informal evidence of anti-conservative bias among psychologists. It's the NY Times, so probably I shouldn't be surprised, but many of the comments by leftists (who greatly outnumber conservatives among the commenters) read as though the authors were foaming at the mouth as they typed. Which I suppose is impressive in a way. What consistently amazes me about such people is that they consider themselves thoughtful and broadminded. They simply can't be reached by reason; the unbridgeable divide in action.

(On the other hand, this book, by one of the non-hydrophobic commenters, looks interesting.)
