I love the term "resistance to information"

Although it scares me.

‘The roots of the Bush supporters’ resistance to information," according to Steven Kull, "very likely lie in the traumatic experience of 9/11 and equally in the near pitch-perfect leadership that President Bush showed in its immediate wake. This appears to have created a powerful bond between Bush and his supporters–and an idealized image of the President that makes it difficult for his supporters to imagine that he could have made incorrect judgments before the war, that world public opinion could be critical of his policies or that the President could hold foreign policy positions that are at odds with his supporters."’

I have to add here – my personal opinion is that if you were not within the radius of the dust cloud on 9/11 and you use the "traumatic experience" to get behind this bumbling warmonger, then please get your head out of the fucking sand! It may make you feel better, but it’s not helping anyone else.
