Article Link: There's No Arguing With Conservatives ... No, Seriously, Scientific Studies Prove It

"A new study out of Yale University confirms what argumentative liberals have long-known: Offering reality-based rebuttals to conservative lies only makes conservatives cling to those lies even harder. In essence, schooling conservatives makes them more stupid. From the Washington Post article on the study, which came out yesterday"

To be fair, things work the same way for "liberals".

It's a cognitive process called biased assimilation. Basically, what it means is that people (all people) tend to reject information that contradicts an existing belief while simultaneaously giving more weight and importance to information that confirms that belief.

We all do it - it's just that we progressives are correct to reject conservative nonsense. ;)
