Lakoff and Ault on conservative frames.

Back in February, I called attention to Doug Muder's essay, "Red Family, Blue Family: Making Sense of the Values Issue." (Available here.) A shorter version appears in the new issue of UU World, focused on George Lakoff's Moral Politics: How Liberals and Conservatives Think and James M. Ault Jr's Spirit and Flesh: Life in a Fundamentalist Baptist Church. See "Making Sense of the Conservative Worldview."

Guess I better go read Lakoff.

As I just pointed out on Matthew's blog, I actually didn't write Internet for Dummies. I have an irrational fear that this factoid will mushroom into my Al-Gore-claimed-to-invent-the-Internet moment.

Other than that detail, I found the comments quite useful.
