Low effort thinking promotes conservatism

The Huffington Post is reporting that a study shows that low effort thought promotes conservatism.

"People endorse conservative ideology more when they have to give a first or fast response," the study's lead author, University of Arkansas psychologist Dr. Scott Eidelman, said in a written statement released by the university.

Not really news. Think about Rush Limbaugh. Does the guy think beyond what's in his most primal area of his brain? And what about Sarah Palin? Can this woman analyze a complex problem that isn't shaded by a preconceived narrative? Think about it, all you independents.
