A Comment on Krugman's Post, First They Came For The Climate Scientists

The post, First They Came For The Climate Scientists which I responded to:

Einstein was a fuzzy-headed liberal, and that's a good thing.

Liberals are open to experience, e.g., have open minds, like to travel, and enjoy novelty, unlike conservatives, who tend be closed to new experiences. This also correlates to some degree with intelligence and to a non-literal intellect. Maybe there is something underlying this, like corporal punishment, but this in many ways explains the rabid stupidity and regressiveness of conservatives' beliefs.
