A colleague and a friend started running this blog (link: http://www.thelittleblueblog.org/) to complement their recent book by the same name. It's a way of using research in cognitive science and cognitive linguistics in an accessible, activist-friendly way to deconstruct conservative "arguments" while trying to help progressives "construct" (or at least, better frame) their own arguments. I think folks on this board would find it interesting.

Also, if you've read their book, would you consider leaving an Amazon review? Apparently they're getting trolled by conservatives, and my friend would appreciate some positive reviews to counter-balance that (my friend = the lady co-author).

That sounds really interesting. I haven't read the book but I will if I can get hold of it from the library or at little expense.
