Two Ships Passing in the Night

Confirmed: Conservatives understand liberal positions better than liberals understand conservative positions « Hot Air#comments.

A most excellent post at HotAir that gets to the heart of what has become our increasingly divided politics.

I think they missed a very important aspect of the debate. Conservatives tend to speak in terms of thoughts and beliefs when discussing their values while liberals speak mainly in terms of feelings. I don’t know how many times I’ve crossed swords with a liberal who could tell me how they feel but could give me no rational thought for feeling that way.

Thoughts vs. feelings, rational vs. irrational and never the twain shall meet.
