27. I will try to respond to part of this post
Gee, which part should I choose?

Maybe the first bullet point.

Political scientists wrote quite a few articles arguing umpteen reasons why they were convinced Gore won Florida in 2000. One of them has the delightfully succinct title, "The Wrong Man is President!"

Several of these analysts have been at the forefront of attempts to analyze data from 2004. Perhaps I will leave it to you as an exercise where the author of "The Wrong Man is President!" fits in.

The idea that you are entitled to take every colleague of mine who doesn't agree with your analysis, shove a bunch of polemical claptrap in their mouths, and then dismiss them as Republican stooges...

...umm, is certainly a barrier to effective communication. I think it also discourages lucid thought.
