Quotation Of The Day: Purposeful Political Displacement Edition

From this Wil Wilkinson post at Marginal Revolution,
Politics makes us stupid. This is one of my recurring themes. This is the principal reason I refuse to be a partisan or ideological team player. People call me libertarian but I don't in part because I'm not one, but mostly because I suspect that accepting any such label dings my IQ about 15 points
The rest of the post is well worth reading as Wilkinson points to a study that indicates ". . . politics not only makes us stupid. It also makes us callous."
