George Orwell Said

We are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue, and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twisting the facts so as to show that we were right. Intellectually, it is possible to carry on this process for an indefinite time: the only check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps up against solid reality, usually on a battlefield,

Hat tip to Andrew Sullivan.

Nice.

This sounds like one of the main characters on the novel I'm writing at the moment ;)
