The following little poem, received from Lib the Poet, may help those readers who find difficulty in keeping two opposite views in their minds at the same time. Lib thinks George Bush is a full-blown case of cognitive dissonance. [Perhaps his direct line to God is to the Old Testament God, who didnít mind wars so much.See Numbers, Chapter 31, Verse 13.Ed.]

 

Cognitive Dissonance

 

There you are!You can see at a glance

††††† Iíve been studying Cognitive Dissonance.

††††† Iíve made up my mind . . .

††††† And so I am free!

††††† Halleluja!Fiddlededee!
