    Are we talking about the same guy? I'm talking about the arrogant, condescending, short tempered, single-minded beacon of hatred for all things non-Republican.

    generalize much?

    you obviously have not had much dealings with criminal defendants. Unpleasant? O'Reilly? you need a good perspective-readjustment.

    Charlie Manson, Ted Bundy, the DC Sniper, now that is a start of a list of "Unpleasant people"

    He can be like that, but he isn't nearly as bad as you are playing him out to be.

    I'm just calling it like I see it. Psychological studies reflect this also. There are several studies that show the general factors in underlying conservative beliefs is fear of uncertainty, intolerance of ambiguity and a need for cognitive closure. These studies were released in the Psychological Bulletin in 2003. These studies showed that liberals have a higher tolerance for change than conservatives. It has also been shown that social dominance orientation is strongly associated with conservative political views.

    One of the characteristics of the right is its tendency to demand tolerance of intolerance: To accuse anyone of "racism" who talks about racism; to call people "class warriors" who try to rectify class warfare against defenseless people; to call people "elitists" who want to give everyone opportunities to excel. Some of it is just doublespeak (thanks for the prompt via your signature line) or projection - vicious liars who take pleasure in preemptively accusing others of the things they themselves are doing - but really it goes to the heart of the conservative viewpoint. A predator defines freedom as being allowed to prey on the weak, and will feel constrained or even tortured having to concede a common set of rights and responsibilities with people they perceive as inferior.

    such high sounding nonsense serving as a facade to justify a far left bias.

    we get the fact that those who believe in suckling on the public teat hate conservatives.

    Science? there isn't that much of it. They are guessing that the rest of us won't understand the science. Sort of like the Utah college professors who faked "cold fusion".

    I know what certain studies say about conservatives, but they don't say this.
