Great talk, thanks for sharing.  I'm never surprised to hear stuff like this, but I am always bewildered at how humans fall into these categories.

So if the conservatives had any nouse they'd be inundating media in the days before elections with massive wash your hands  the world is a dirty place hygiene as a hidden subliminal command bias inducing cheat.

Every toll booth should have disgust inducing props and ads.

The sad part about this is it doesn't seem to have a reverse but equal effect (at least not mentioned).

I seriously predict we will see this taken up as a deliberate ploy in one form or another.

And those liberals who raise the issue will be subjected to extreme vilification and denunciation as conspiracy nuts!
