Why Bilinguals Are Smarter — If English was good enough for Jesus Christ, it's good enough for me.

I’m Number One! Does Narcissism Impair Ethical Judgment Even for the Highly Religious?Surprisingly, of the three clusters, Nominals and Devouts were the only groups impacted by narcissism, although Skeptics overall demonstrate the worst ethical judgment. Hoo boy is this one going to make headlines in wingnuttia. Nothing like an academic study which can be interpreted to claim atheists have low ethical standards. First cautionary note: consider the pool from which the sample was drawn.

Rick Santorum courts conservative Christians as evangelicals embrace him — Ya think?

Republican voters' passion uneven for Romney, Santorum — Ya think?

The Power of Plutocratic Pettiness — I still think "plutocracy" should mean "rule by cartoon dogs".

The Log Cabin Republicans are the complete mystery to me...

These are people who actively support a party that *actively* lobbies against THEM, has members that call them abominations, and
that keeps them from marrying their partners, participating in the military, AND want them to have no legal recourse from being fired
for being themselves.....

and yet, there they are campaigning and carrying signs for these guys......

I dont understand how someone would do that
