the bubble we are all in

americans overwhelmingly support air strikes in libya, which i find fairly surprising as my impression was that people were either against it or fairly conflicted about it. i would have guessed it would be an even split at best.

i guess it just goes to show how our personal experiences are almost always non-representative of the world at large. i'm convinced that is why so many tea partiers were shocked by the election of obama when it seemed obvious he would win to me. probably everyone they talked to was for mccain. when your personal experience tells you that you're a majority, it's hard to accept when you are later told you are a minority.
