Scientists at the Society for the Prevention of Odiousness, Ratbastardy, and Killeverythingism (SPORK) have long studied the Republican Party, but recently they've developed a powerful tool in this area of research: Fear Goggles.  This advanced simulation device allows a normal person to see the world through the eyes of a Republican, and to do so safely without any of the coprophilia or Nugentism that tends to develop with more immersive methods.  

Below are some of the results recorded from Fear Goggle trials, with reality on the left and images captured from the device on the right.  In order to be scientific, some of the images were intended to be neutral control images, but strangely still resulted in some rather odd distortions.  I think you'll find the results fascinating.

I could go on, but studies have shown that extended exposure to the Fear Goggles caused increased incincdences of fuckery, and a higher Swastikality index among test subjects.  One unfortunate soul, who drove a platinum-trimmed Mercedes, became convinced the world was robbing her and went on a rampage against her domestic staff with a Wii controller.  We have called this the "Biznitch" factor and have since incorporated it into our models.  We pledge to continue boldly probing this area of research, and maybe some day find a cure for Republicans.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
