George Lakoff on why the conservatives seem to be winning

My friend Bonnie Powell interviewed master linguist and cultural commentator George Lakoff at UC Berkeley about how the Democrats desperately need a lesson in language. This is a must-read:

"…Conservatives, especially conservative think tanks, have framed virtually every issue from their perspective. They have put a huge amount of money into creating the language for their worldview and getting it out there. Progressives have done virtually nothing."
