"90% of political debate is cognitive dissonance avoidance.
We've made up our minds who we are voting for,
then we spend months justifying it.

If the opponent has a weakness, we exploit it.
We pretend it's a reason not to vote for the opponent,
but it's really not,
because we've already decided. . . .

Most people, myself included, are biased and inconsistent when it comes to political debate.
I think the best we can do is to recognize at and try to tone it down when it gets out of hand."
- Moshalito, 9/2/08

"Knowing we won't change each other's mind makes the whole conversation a lot easier."
