How to Become a Conservative in Four Embarrassing Steps

by Paul Buchheit

Not that we'd want to. But many Americans, perplexingly, have taken that path in the last ten years, as 27 percent of those polled now consider themselves 'mostly' or 'consistently' conservative, up from 18 percent in 2004. (Conservatives were at 30 percent in 1994. Liberals increased from 21 to over 30 percent in the 1990s and have remained approximately the same since then.)

The language of true conservatives often turns to denial, dismissal, and/or belligerence, without verifiable facts of any substance. There is also evidence for delusional thinking and a lack of empathy. Here are four ways to be just like them.

1. Ignore Facts

Research shows that conservatives tend to modify facts to accommodate their beliefs and convictions, while liberals are more willing to deal with the complexity of multiple sources of information that help determine the true facts.

In simpler terms, numerous studies (here, here, here, and here) conclude that conservatives are not very smart.

Perhaps the best example of fact-aversion is climate change. Incredibly, even though 97 percent of climate scientists agree that climate warming is very likely due to human activities, 66 percent of Republicans say they do not believe in global warming.

Some people think that this is a game...

In other words...

Time to do the Sunday Polar Boogie, here's how you do it...


First you shimmy to the left...


Then you sashay the right...


Then you wave with your left paw...


Do a twist and shake your bootie…


Then end it off with a B-boy stance.


And that's how you do the Sunday Polar Boogie!

Dope shit...

Nary a fuck was given that day...

Not so sure about this other dog...
