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.
