Should be educational.

liberals and conservatives lies deep in their psychologies. He
discusses the personality traits commonly associated with both
parties and the science that proves it. <br><br>Guest:<br>Chris
Mooney, author of "The Republican Brain: The Science of Why They Deny
Science-And Reality." You can find out more about the book at its

Psychology is generally ridiculed as quack science by other sciences and books like Mooney's do little to change that despite his perceived effort. It is simply thinly guised jabs at the Republican party, much like saying, "It's not Democrats' fault they vote the way they do, they're just to poor to be Republicans."

More like: "It's not Democrats' fault they vote the way they do, they're just not selfish enough to be Republicans."

Thank you for providing a perfect example of the foolishness to which I was referring. LOL.

That was a good program. The psychology was backed up by empirical physiology, particularly the structure of the physical brain in many cases.
