Good one, Psychology Today! Maybe next you can create a column on paleoanthropology penned by Glenn Beck. (via zuky) 0o. (via blackamazon)

Here’s a little thought experiment. Imagine that, on September 11, 2001, when the Twin Towers came down, the President of the United States was not George W. Bush, but Ann Coulter. What would have happened then? On September 12, President…
