Why the psychobiology of conservative brains makes the case against bipartisanship

Yes, that's a bit extreme, but it did get your attention.  

I am still on my research sabbatical but will post to this blog now and then when I find some noteworthy research that has practical political implications.  

Here are two articles.  The first is John Nichols' scathing critique of a US House vote on tax breaks for corporations.  (Why do Dems vote for this stuff?)  The second touts a return to FDR style messaging as a way to overcome the characteristics of the conservative brain - and presents a justification for why our Democratic politicians should start behaving very differently.
