Conservatives, Liberals, And Gaze

Once again it’s almost eleven P.M., I’m still at work, and once again I have no time to write. (This is getting old fast, as am I.) I do have another interesting item for you, though.

This time it’s about a little experiment, one that has picked out a curious difference between liberals and conservatives. It could be spun two ways: either to suggest that A) liberals are empathetic, connected souls who are naturally involved with what their fellow man is thinking and feeling, and that conservatives are selfish and aloof; or B) that liberals are sheep, and that conservatives think, and take responsibility, for themselves. (I like B.)

Or the whole thing could be just a lot of hooey.

Anyway, it’s the best I could do, given that I’m stuck here working this late on a Friday. Read the story here.

    I think it’s because liberals have better sex lives than conservatives do. This greater degree of contentment and connectedness naturally carries over into other spheres.

    You may have something there Peter, Ann Coulter has thus far successfully rebuffed my every entreaty. Regardless of my sincerity.

    Well, she is the kind of woman who doesn’t need birth control. She can use her personality as birth control.

    Yeah, I know. Where I think I lost her is when I suggested we should probably “two-bag” if we managed to get together.

    Maybe you should have suggested role play to her. You could be Lester Maddox, she could be Janet Reno.

    (Sounds like Pink Floyd. “Careful with that axe handle, Lester!”)

    How so Dr. (Ruth) “howsurprising”?

    Two-bagging?

    I mean I’d have some trouble doubling Lester but I think I could do a reasonable George Wallace … but I dunnno dear lord – substituting (even in ‘role-playing’ Ann for Janet?).

    I hesitate but must ask… (not for myself mind) – but how would one discern an authentic orgasm?

    OK, I’m lost. What does any of this have to do with the art of paper folding?
