Let's see how many smilies I can find to express my admiration for these sentiments.


I also had the beer toast smiley and the thumbs up smiley, but the site limits me to 4 images per post. So...only 6? They need more smilies.

It's called preaching to the choir, aka positive reinforcement of bias. Ninety-nine percent of people who buy "How to speak to a liberal (if you must)" are conservatives, while a similar proportion of people who buy "Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot" are liberal. They reinforce their preconceived notions by reading only the stuff they agree with. Or to put it another way, "If you repeat a lie enough times, people will come to accept it as true."

The real mystery is why our societies let these bozos get away with this crap.
