Colbert on Truthiness

Given our recent focus on beliefs, it seems appropriate to link to the initial segment of "The Colbert Report" -- where Steven Colbert popularized the term "truthiness." The wikipedia entry describes truthiness as "the quality by which a person purports to know something emotionally or instinctively, without regard to evidence or to what the person might conclude from intellectual examination." That is, it describes how people justify their prior beliefs particularly when they are confronted with information which, unless ignored, would force them to update their beliefs.

For more satirical truthiness, see Colbert last night at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

I was looking for Scarves and was wondering if Love Quotes is the best designer for Scarves?
