That awkward moment when you have to explain the meaning of your site’s title to a U.S. congressman

After you corrected him.

Yep. That happened, *cough*johnbarrasso*cough.

Cognitive Dissonance: noun Psychology

1. Anxiety that results from simultaneously holding contradictory or otherwise incompatible attitudes, beliefs, or the like, as when one likes a person but disapproves strongly of one of his or her habits.

2. A bitchin’ radio show and website.

3. A condition that should be provoked more often in GOP congressmen, but isn’t.

It’s not the ability to hold contradictory ideas. More like the opposite.

Yeah, that was awkward.
