PIPA passes

Everyone's talking about the new PIPA report that shows how delusional Bush supporters are ("Bush Supporters Still Believe Iraq Had WMD or Major Program, Supported al Qaeda . . . Bush Supporters Misperceive World Public as Not Opposed to Iraq War, Favoring Bush Reelection")

Here's the money quote:
"To support the president and to accept that he took the US to war based on mistaken assumptions likely creates substantial cognitive dissonance, and leads Bush supporters to suppress awareness of unsettling information about prewar Iraq."
Substantial cognitive dissonance. Yes, I think that covers it nicely. It's what you get when you don't live in the reality-based community. Ooh, small brains hurt so very much!

(If you don't get the Browning joke, read the poem. The snail's on the thorn, the WMDs are in Iraq, and all's right with the world! Really! Really!!!)
