I am glad you linked to this Tom because Andrew Ferguson also mentioned Jonathan Haidt's book The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion. He didn't love it either. I am concerned by the large number of commentators who love that book. Probably because they believe it portrays the Right as being reasonable.

A careful reading of the book though has Haidt pushing the cultivation of emotion over intellect. I think history conclusively shows us that is a dangerous position for educators to take.

If Haidt's emphasis was not planned, it nevertheless dovetails magnificently with the current Outcomes Based Education emphasis of his UVa colleagues as the College of Education.

LUN is today's blog post on just how much the emotional instead of knowledge and the intellect is driving national ed reform. And what I did not put in post but will generate interest here. Yes, AERA is the organization that thought Bill Ayers should have a leadership role a few years ago.

Jonah Goldberg adds some interesting commentary re the Ferguson article here.

Key paragraph: "Oh and one last point about the interpretations of these studies. The core — hyper-liberal — assumption behind them is that the more liberal emotional or cognitive states are superior. In this study, it’s taken as a given that having more compassion is better than having too little. But that depends, doesn’t it? One can be too compassionate (or open-minded, or nuanced etc). This study could also demonstrate that “conservatives” get bored more quickly by pointless emotional bleating in lab conditions."

--In this study, it’s taken as a given that having more compassion is better than having too little. But that depends, doesn’t it? One can be too compassionate (or open-minded, or nuanced etc).--

I question the original premise. The liberals guilt-tinged, pitiful sympathy for others does not equal compassion any more than I demonstrate compassion for my kids by feeling sorry for them and never disciplining them.

Lefty "compassion" equals dependency and despondency for its 'beneficiaries' and state coercion and confiscation from its "donors" and of course it yields the side benefit of immense power for them to enforce their "compassion".

For a chuckle or two go to #ObamaInHistory at Twitter. C&P won't work because I am on mobile twitter. Worth the visit.

Liberals measure compassion by how much taxpayer money you believe should be spent. That's a pretty easy kind of compassion to have.

Thanks CH and JiB.
What a ponce.

Thomas Edsall seems to draw on the meme that all "rich" folks are Republicans.

If that's so, just who were all those folks that Obama hit up for a million dollars the other night ? .. Republicans ?? LOL

Otherwise, I just might not have much to compalin about with “Higher Social Class Predicts Increased Unethical Behavior.”

The paper, by Paul K. Piff of the University of California, Berkeley, and four colleagues, reports that members of the upper class are more likely than others to behave unethically, to lie during negotiations, to drive illegally and to cheat when competing for a prize.

Let's see that certainly sounds a lot like Lindsay Lohan (D-Hollywood) and many of the Hollywood crowd who certainly aren't dominated by Republicans.

AliceH

And... here's a link to the twitter hashtag #ObamaInHistory

I believe that hash was inspired by Commentary post, headline "Obama Drops His Name Into the Other Presidential Biographies"

Neo

Also, Democrats like like Wall Street is dominated by Republicans. The face of Wall Street this past week was Jamie Dimon (D-JPMorgan). He isn't just a Democrat, but a lifetime Democrat.

I recommend the Ferguson article. It is hilarious (in a dry way) as well as insightful. I'd forgotten what a great writer he is.

I know; as a former Justice said(paraphrased)

conservative obscenity, when I see it.

Before retiring from the Supreme Court in 2009, liberal Justice David Souter penned a dissent so critical of the court's conservative justices, Chief Justice John Roberts went to great lengths to prevent it from being published. That's one of the clams from The New Yorker's epic dissection of the 2010 Supreme Court Decision Citizens United vs. the Federal Election Commission. Taking us inside the legal wranglings of the high-profile case, staff writer Jeffrey Toobin describes a dissent Souter wrote at the end of his tenure at the Supreme Court. The argument, which remains unpublished, accused Roberts of engineering the outcome of the Citizens United case:

Souter wrote a dissent that aired some of the Court’s dirty laundry. By definition, dissents challenge the legal conclusions of the majority, but Souter accused the Chief Justice of violating the Court’s own procedures to engineer the result he wanted.
Roberts didn’t mind spirited disagreement on the merits of any case, but Souter’s attack—an extraordinary, bridge-burning farewell to the Court—could damage the Court’s credibility. So the Chief came up with a strategically ingenious maneuver.

The “powerful” students—that is, the students who said on the questionnaire that they were feeling powerful that morning—showed less dramatic reactions to the stories than other students. Or, as the professors put it: “Our data suggest that social power attenuates emotional reactions to those who suffer.”

You can interpret this many ways. It could be said the heroric figures, like Medal of Honor winners, move past the pain to do something more than curl up in a ball and weep at other's pain. This doesn't make them any less compassionate. It just means they channel their reactions differently.

Name a single liberal policy that works.
JUST ONE.
Liberals continue to pander to groups in exchange for votes. The black family unit has nearly been destroyed by this.
Liberals KNOW that their policies don't work, so they convince themselves that CONSERVTIVES/TEABAGGERS/the GOP etc are hate filled bigots. So their consciences don't ache. Liberals continue destructive policies, because the only other option is to be relegated as the extinct Democrat party.
In the end, their compa$$ion i$ your ca$h, and their vote$.

NK

Tom--

interesting that you post this ferguson article immediately after a post about the inevitability of 'gay marriage'. You correctly highlight the lefty sociological nonsense that comes out of 'social experimentation' and the risible conclusions that sputter out of the lefty mind that is closed shut to empirical evidence. So why, do you seem to embrace the need for 'gay marriage' experimentation, when it will only ruin the lives of many children, just like every lefty social experiment that came before 'gay marriage.' Permanently fouling up marriage and children is nothing to be glib about.

Jim Ryan

Did youse notice that Jerry Brown described the enormity of the Cal deficit as "unexpected"? Snicker. The most used word of the last three years. Look for lib history books to describe the Obama presidency as an "unexpected" failure.

Re: the #ObamainHistory - I just don't understand. I wouldn't have thought it possible for anyone to be as narcissistic and tone-deaf as Zero and his lackeys.

How is this not fodder for ridicule not just here and among Conservatives, but in the wider culture?

If it were Bush...hell, even if it were Clinton who'd done this, they'd be roasted alive in the MSM.

But it's Obama and...crickets.

MarkO

Anyone here remember when liberals were all about free speech?

Jim Ryan

hit, many M.A. theses will be written in attempt to "explain" how Obama ended up a failure against all odds. It will remain a classic "problem" to assign as a term paper topic for many generations. The papers and theses which most impressively place the blame elsewhere than Obama and liberal ideology will score an "A". The papers which just scratch their heads a "B" (and if eloquent, "B+"). Those attributing the failure to Obama and liberal ideology will have "too simplistic" and "too ideological" written in the margins with the grade "D".

Some guy

I love these studies, and more ironically how much the left *needs* these studies.

One of the few things a typical liberal needs is to be told how righteous and smart they are, yet they keep producing these studies to tell them how righteous and smart they are, and just as important, how stupid and wicked their opponents are.

I guess they need it to counter all that real world data about what their policies actually do to humanity. Probably couldn't sleep at night if they understood that reality.

MarkO

OK. Let's get to work on mocking this stuff:

FROM THE OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE WEB SITE:

"James Buchanan, the 15th president, was the only American president never to marry. Barack Obama has supported the largest expansion or marriage rights in American history."

MarkO

During his term in office, James Buchanan dismissed Brigham Young, a combative Mormon, as the governor of the Utah Territory. He ordered more than one thousand soldiers to go to Utah to put down the Mormon rebellion.

During his very first term, Obama ordered more than one thousand media outlets to crush the Mormon rebellion of Mitt Romney.

Neo

The Heritage Foundation’s Rory Cooper tweeted that Obama had casually dropped his own name into Ronald Reagan’s official biography on www.whitehouse.gov, claiming credit for taking up the mantle of Reagan’s tax reform advocacy with his “Buffett Rule” gimmick. My first thought was, he must be joking. But he wasn’t—it turns out Obama has added bullet points bragging about his own accomplishments to the biographical sketches of every single U.S. president since Calvin Coolidge (except, for some reason, Gerald Ford).

Will no one rid me of this meddlesome politician ?

Porchlight

I guess they need it to counter all that real world data about what their policies actually do to humanity. Probably couldn't sleep at night if they understood that reality.

I can tell you that 99% of the liberals I know have zero idea what their policies actually do to humanity. Where would they learn about it? Not from the schools, and not from the media, and not from most historians.

#ObamaInHistory: I'm shamelessly stealing all of Dan Foster's NRO post

“In the 12th Century B.C., Moses the Lawgiver delivered the Ten Commandments to the Israelites. President Obama the Lawgiver has added significantly to them, overseeing the enactment of a record number of new regulations.”

“In the Late Neolithic, the wheel was invented. President Obama has made historic use of wheels for his many campaign trips to Ohio.”

“During the Cambrian period, the first vertebrates appeared. President Obama showed historic signs of a primitive backbone himself when he boldly announced that “at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.””

“About three billion years ago, the first aerobic organisms appeared. President Obama has made historic use of oxygen in his detailed answers to press conference questions.”

re: "visit from the SS".
As time goes forward, I am more and more concerned for the safety of Mitt Romney. There are a lot of hysterics out there, and if the polls start to solidify with a stable Romney advantage, well, I worry.

James K. Polk oversaw the entry of Texas into the Union. Barack Obama is trying his best to turn over Texas to the Mexicans by allowing as many as they can muster to stream into Texas to make it Mexican again. Through the inovative use of arms sales to Mexican cartels, the President is circumventing the laws of both the US and Mexico to help bring death and estruction to both nations.

A letter from James O'Keefe:

After our investigation in Washington, D.C., the office of the Attorney General of the United States accused Project Veritas of "manufacturing" voter fraud when we showed how easily ballots were offered in the District of Columbia -- even the ballot of Eric Holder himself.

I admit when I heard the word "manufactured" it struck a nerve.

With our small team and the support of our donors, we sought to expose not just how fraud happens, but to take the investigation to the extreme by stating the names of voters who also identified themselves as non-citizens.

Last Tuesday, we did just that in North Carolina.

With the power of transparency in our hands through public information, we cross-checked the voter roles with forms where individuals had declined jury duty for being non-citizens.

It appears as if at least one individual either perjured themselves on the Durham County Jury Excusal Form or is not a U.S. Citizen who is registered to vote.

Our attempts to verify their citizenship directly with the individuals were met with obfuscation and hostility so we left it up to state officials to investigate – only to be told that "voting is a public policing open process" by the Deputy Director of the Wake County Board of Elections

Our North Carolina investigation has been taxing and one of our most intensive investigations this year – and the work speaks for itself.

As you will see, our top investigators, dressed in outrageous costumes, speaking a foreign language, covered in bandages and . . . yes, being offered ballots each and every time for individuals who declared themselves non-citizens.

This was a long and expensive investigation that exposed both fraud and the hypocrisy of those who repeatedly state that no voter fraud exists.

You'll see an election judge say that he will "mostly support" the Constitution and then go on to state, "We need somebody to run over Scalia first."

Then you'll see for yourself the hypocrisy of a state-funded school, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where we have NUMEROUS administrators embrace our investigator who appears to be behind "Operation Chaos" to commit mass voter fraud within the state.

To top it all off, we have a director of the "new ACORN", Coalition to Protect Families, compare voter fraud to "speeding" and advising with a wink and a nod, "There's even less enforcement of these laws than there are of those."

Our staff was up all night finishing this video and the reaction just within the first few hours has been tremendous.

Just minutes ago, commentator and political icon Michelle Malkin gave us a generous donation and tweeted, "I just donated to Project Veritas to support America's best election integrity watchdogs. Have you?"

I'm extremely grateful for Mrs. Malkin's support and yours. If you can, after your watch our video, please make a donation on that same page. Click here to get started. [The video is at the link.]

Thanks again for your ongoing support. With the support of our generous donors, Project Veritas has already made an incredible impact this year.

Help us continue the fight.

Yours for Truth,

Also, Democrats like like Wall Street is dominated by Republicans. The face of Wall Street this past week was Jamie Dimon (D-JPMorgan). He isn't just a Democrat, but a lifetime Democrat.
What is humorous is that Wall Street is not Republican. Probably just as many, if not more Democrats there. Nice to portray it as Republican though to their base.

My theory is that a lot of those who got rich fairly easily, seem to end up Democrats. You see this with inherited wealth, and with the wealth that comes from instant stardom in Hollywood. And, I think with Big Law lawyers. On the other hand, those who gain wealth, and even great wealth, through long work and maybe turning a small business into a bigger one, tend to be Republican.

And, I think that the reason for this, is that the former group question why they were blessed with their wealth, and others were not. And, the latter know why.

lyle

Anyone who thinks Wall St. is dominated by Republicans is an imbecile.

General George Catlett Marshall, who never penned a memoir (as opposed to the brilliant Barack Obama, who penned two memoir like books before reaching the age of 50), has been referred to as the organizer of victory in World War II. This feat pales when measured against Barack Obama's organization of asbestos removal in Altgeld Gardens, not to mention his relentless focus on organizing male only golfing outings.

It may just be my orneriness, but O'Reilly Pissed me off again last night in his interview of frank Vandersloot, a Mitt Romney donor who has been targeted by Obama via an enemies list.

Vandersloot, who's business has been harmed by this published enemies list, had 2 very worthwhile questions, but O'Reilly, in typical knee jerk fashion, immediately dismissed Vandersloot's well thought out and well stated questions, and instead provided personalcover for Obama by insinuating Vandersloot was thinking as an irrational conspiracy theorist.

From the tape:

O'REILLY: Some believe -- some believe this is economic terrorism. Not economic, political terrorism. That targeting a businessman like you running an honest business because of your freedom to donate who you want to donate to, but try to ruin you personally and professionally, that's terrorism, political terrorism. Do you see it that way?

VANDERSLOOT: Well, I have these two questions, Bill, to President Obama. Why did you publish a list? Why?

O'REILLY: But he doesn't know anything about it. I'm not making excuses for his people.

VANDERSLOOT: ...his people.

O'REILLY: I don't think he micromanages.

VANDERSLOOT: He surely put the people in charge to make those accusations.

O'REILLY: He's responsible for it, because they did it under his name. So absolutely.

VANDERSLOOT: Ask them: why did you make a list? Of all the things you could be doing..

O'REILLY: They want to hurt you and intimidate others who would give to Romney. That's why.

VANDERSLOOT: Second question is who's supposed to receive the message? Is it only the liberal press that's supposed to go after these folks? Or is it also the agencies that he runs like -- that he's in charge of and who report to him and want to please him? The FDC, the FDA, the USDA?

O'REILLY: Well, I think you might be -- you might be making it more complicated than it is.
Here's the bottom line. They want you to shut up and not give any money. And you're going to give another donation, I understand, to the Romney campaign. But they wanted to intimidate you from giving any money to the campaign and others like you who might be thinking about it. Business people going, "I'm not going to do that, because they'll put my name on the Web and I'll lose customers. So I'm not going to do it."
That's what they -- but that's terrorism. And that's what that is.

VANDERSLOOT: I suppose it is. It never happened -- no president has ever done it before.

O'REILLY: OK. But I want -- I think you should be careful on this. If I do ever get the chance to talk to Barack Obama, I'm going to bring up your case, because you're absolutely right. He should scrub that and take that off, and he shouldn't do that.
But I don't know if he himself -- he himself had ordered to do it, and I think we've got to be careful.

I wish O'Reilly would shut up sometimes and let somebody expand on their points. Watching the exchange you can see that Vandersloot wanted to continue with his line of questioning, but upon being forestalled by O'Reilly's pontificating dismissal of the issue, he gave it up.

So back to the 2 questions

1) Why publish such a list?
2) Who is supposed to receive the Message?

I'd like to have heard more elaboration on questions 1 and 2, and then questions 3 and 4, and with some discussion of the legality of paid staffers on my tax dollars amassing and publishing this list.

Stolen from a commenter at Althouse:

All kidding aside -- I know it's hard-- but the Once is a sick man. His narcissism is clinical-- he needs supervised care.

His commencement speech at Barnard, aside from talking about the flaws of the Constitution, I gather was pretty much a campaign speech. I mean, who does that? He's an embarrassment to the office.

jimmyk

Anyone who thinks Wall St. is dominated by Republicans is an imbecile.

In addition to Dimon being a Democrat, Goldman Sachs is a total Dem stronghold (notwithstanding Hank Paulson). Pretty sure the large institutions that run with their palms open at the first sign of trouble are largely Democrat (surprise, surprise)--Citi, BoA, MS. The Republicans tend to be in the smaller more entrepreneurial places like private equity, junk bonds, hedge funds.

Neo

This is gonna leave a mark …

The first area was Obama’s identity — just who was he?

“Obama was steeped in Islam but knew nothing about Christianity,” Klein says.

Klein asked Wright if he converted Obama from being a Muslim into a Christian.

“He said, I don’t know about that. but I can tell you that I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam,” Klein says.

After the NY Post story, this ought to get Rev Wright an offer of at least $250,000 to shut up.

Clarice

weekly Standard..

A new poll of Arkansas Democrats shows Barack Obama receiving support from only 45 percent of Democratic primary voters in Arkansas’s Fourth Congressional District, while 38 percent support his underfunded and relatively unknown primary challenger, Tennessee lawyer John Wolfe, Jr. Seventeen percent are undecided in the district poll. In an interview with THE WEEKLY STANDARD, Wolfe said the poll results were “unbelievable” and said a defeat for Obama in the Arkansas primary would be “politically cataclysmic.” “It says the momentum is good,” Wolfe said about the poll. “This is democracy in action."

I share the contempt for BOR, but to give credit where credit is due, at least he had Vandersloot on his show, and the basic elements of the story probably got out to a lot of people who hadn't heard it. I don't expect to see Vandersloot on GMA or Today, or anywhere in the NFM.

Yes jimmyk; I'll concede that. He also has Tammy Bruce (who probably shares our opinion of his cognitive ability) on sporadically so despite his personal illiteracy he does provide a forum which others don't.

O'Reilly is a circus Geek. His ego is nearly as big as Obama's. The question and answer portion of O'Reilly, with a guest, is always O'Reilly right, guest wrong. O'Reilly snidely cuts off the guest, in this case a business man who is successful.
The moment O'Reilly had his life and financial future interrupted or threatened by Obama, his pants get shat.
This shit is dead serious. If Obama does not approve, he would not hire scum like Axelrod. Obama knows EXACTLY what is going on. Futhermore, he is responsible for his henchmens' actions.

I think it's probably too late narciso. People seem to like Brown. I don't know if he will win but I don't expect an alternative surge at this point.

Captain Hate

Brown can only benefit as an incumbent when the donks reveal their utter disorganization by bringing in a ringer at this late date. What an embarrassment; I don't even think Duke and Duke could outdo that although I'd hate to test that hypothesis.
