In Short: The Shooter - Republican or Democrat?

Jared Loughner, the "alleged" shooter of Tuscon, was neither - a registered independent.

Left says he was a conservative, or at least affected by the nasty, violent imagery of folks like Beck and Palin.

Right says he had The Communist Manifesto in his house, so that's socialist and the liberals are to blame.

I say he was horribly disturbed, but de facto must claim him as a liberal. Why?

He actually read books.

maybe, having books and actually reading them are two different things I think.

God, no one wants him on their side.

Debra - exactly. Liberality may have a good point; if he had the books and didn't read them, that's totally conservative.

If he was truly a liberal, he would have shot Sarah Palin or John McCain long ago.

I don't know about you, but I read books from both sides -- I believe in knowing my enemies. One exception: I won't read books by Sarah Palin or Glen Beck -- I gave up coloring books long ago. LOL

Thanks for stopping by my place.
I grew up in Toledo and consider it my hometown. Check out Marcy's videos on YouTube -- they are awesome. Isn't it great that we have someone like her?

And I didn't think your local guy (Boehner) gave you the incentive to get into politics. LOL If he were my Congressman, I'd drink heavily.

That was funny. I hit that last line and almost spit my coffee all over the keyboard. Funny.
