    The media is supposed controversial stuff. That's their job.

    Another way of saying it would be, "I understand where you're coming from, but I disagree and here's why."

    Was he ever truly in danger? Heck, he was basically Chuck D's pet.

    I think WHY you read something and what you do with what you've learned is far more important than THAT you read it.
    And considering that the books he reads don't point to ANY specific ideology speculating that he did what he did because of "liberal" ideologies is no different than saying he's part of the tea party movement.

    That's not what I did. I used Earthworms comments to counter to the suggestion that nobody on the left is blaming the TEA party. Clearly, some on the left are saying that. Can you at least agree that I'm right about that?

    But you did not say that in the original comment I quoted. If that's what you meant then you need to clarify, and not use absolutes.

    And yes, some people on the left are doing that, and some people on the right are blaming the left. Stupidity is abound on both sides.
