    You don't think liberals are going to run with this whole "the tea party has caused the rhetoric in this country to become too extreme" angle? They've already planted the seeds for this narrative all during the 2010 election. They've painted the tea party as extremists, and now this will be used as their proof. Unless it turns out that this guy was a left wing loon, you will be seeing attacks on Palin and FOX news for the next few weeks. It may not be ALL liberals, but a whole lot of them will gladly lap this talking point up, just wait and see.

    None of these videos tell me anything solid about this mans political views. And as far as the comments from a former high school band member ... lets hope we get a bit more than that.

    I know it won't happen but love to see this louse dropped in the middle of the main population in one of our main prisons.

    I'm sure that some will, and they should be criticized as individuals. That doesn't mean that we should be attacking all liberals - aren't you arguing that it's not fair to smear a whole group because of the action of some?

    Regardless if this guy was right or left or had libertarian components of both all mixed up .... he still could have been impacted by the violent rhetoric of this past years campaign and the increasing vitriol in our political environment. Lets not sweep this under the rug. This guy should be studied like a bug under a microscope to find out exactly what made him tick.

    Regardless of what "side" he's on, there is a point to be drawn: the rhetoric in this country is going overboard. Everyone needs to take a step back, and cool down before something like this happens again. This guy was an extremist, and all extremists are bad, left and right.

    She went to high school and college with him and also played in a band with him. Not "high school band."

    You want to know what made him tick? Conscience dreaming and grammar. Good luck making political hay out of that.
