    How much did Congress appropriate for this study ?

    My reaction was similar. I thought, "That's a bug." I guess I'm a liberal.

    I like bugs and snakes.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    It is interesting. It seems to go against the general stereotype that liberals are more emotional and conservatives are more analytical. One can spin the results to make either conservatives or liberals look superior to the other. But the brain is fascinating.

    So Conservatives are glass half-empty types. Who knew?

    Yet, not to completely stereotype women, but if it is true most women hate spiders and ugly things like this fella, does that make them conservative? Not easily, if we are lead to believe that they are more likely (depending on age, race, economic and relationship status) to be liberal.
    The article says there wasn't much difference in reported reactions. That it only showed up in the fMRI.

    Much of persuasion science is based on this kind of quirk in our hardwiring.
