Find two friends, one Republican and one Democrat. Have them close their eyes, and seat one directly in front of the screen, and place the other looking at the screen from at least fifteen feet (five meters) away. At a safe distance, find a comfortable seat, open a bottle of scotch and pour yourself a stiff drink. Tell your friends to open their eyes and ask them these three questions:
- Is the person in this image smart or sexy?
- Is the person in this image young or old?
- Is the person in this image a man or a woman?
Welcome to the world of polarized, partisan, political debate in the United States today.
Hat tip to Dr. X and Neurophilosophy for the image.
