"Framing" is spreading through the Blogosphere


Paperwight has written several posts on his Fair Shot blog expounding on the Lakoff work, including "Post-Reason Politics, Part Two" ( http://fairshot.typepad.com/fairshot/2004/09/postreason_poli_1.html ),
"Eden" ( http://fairshot.typepad.com/fairshot/2004/09/eden.html ), and
"Post-Reason Politics, Part One" ( http://fairshot.typepad.com/fairshot/2004/09/postreason_poli.html ).

Those posts were comented on by Mixing Memory ( http://mixingmemory.blogspot.com/2004/09/karl-rove-feminist-bankteller.html ) and FUGOP ( http://fugop.blogspot.com/2004/09/liberalism.html ).

Very thoughfull stuff overall.

While the Un-Democratic Party has fully understood the power of framing a long time ago and deliberately sends messages straight to the reptilian brain of their pre-Darwinian constituents, the Democratic Party is still led by naive Dinosaurs who believe that truth and facts can win. I hope that this will change - FAST - and the inability of the publisher to satisfy hight demand for Lakoff's "Elephant" book may be a good omen. I have heard (not confirmed) that 100,000 copies were printed. I still cannot get my copy as, rumors say, the initial batch is going to the campaign staffs of various democrats around the country.
