Liberals Are from Mars, Conservatives Are from Earth

This article is from Robin who is a recovering liberal and a psychotherapist in Berkeley who periodically tosses a dandy into The American Thinker basket.

Juicy parts:

Conservatives can mistakenly assume that liberals think like they do, in a learned and rational way. This is an exercise in futility since liberalism is not based on logic.

To become a conservative, I’ve had to learn a whole new language, one based on reason. If conservatives want to understand the liberal mind, they should consider becoming bilingual, too.

Liberals live in a stratosphere centered on emotions and magical thinking. If you’ve tried to reason with your daughter and she looks at you blankly; if your neighbor changes the subject during your compelling arguments; if your cousin says this about Obama: “I don’t know why.  I just like the guy”…that’s why.

Bingo.  Been there, done that.  Used to get PO’d but not worth it; try to become ‘bilingual’.
