Pol -- Optical Illusions. Red Americans and blue Americans not only see the world differently; we see different worlds. Not only canâ€™t we agree on what the facts mean, but on the what the facts are, even when they're in black & white before our very eyes ... Do you see bombs converging on Baghdad or petals of a flower thrown to the troops? Do you see Iraqi civilian dead, or a moral crusade? Do you see an America divided nearly evenly - or a broad mandate? Is that a glowing halo around the President's head, or just the sun? Is the glass half empty or half full? Do you see a great leader, or a trained monkey? Do you see two people holding hands, or a threat to your own marriage? Do you see super-patriotism, or ultra-nationalism? Do you see the availability of the greatest health care in the world, or the lack of availability of the greatest health care in the world? Do you see Iraqi WMD and substantive Iraqi links to Al Qaeda? Or not?
