Do Conservatives Lack Critical Thinking Skills?

In my opinion, yes.  In an unscientific study (conducted by yours truly),  it has been theorized that the farther right one leans, the more one loses their critical thinking abilities. On numerous occasions I have  attempted to have a debate with a conservative. The following is the most recent example of an attempted debate with a  tea party member from my home town, Rockford, IL.  I should have realized it was very unfair of me to have a battle of wits with an unarmed individual.

Many of us get our news from a variety of outlets: radio, TV, internet, newspapers, and magazines. All of which, at some point, have spelled out in explicit detail the blatant accounts of the lying liars at Fox News. These hosts include, but not limited to: Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Glenn Beck. We should add Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh because they are certainly not exempt here. Also, let’s not forget to include Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes themselves. They are, after all, the masterminds behind the "Fear and Smear" mantra at Fox News.
