Yes, because ‘Pot-growing, Anti-Bush Troofer [AND REGISTERED DEMOCRAT]‘ = Right-winger.
[UPDATE]: And a registered Democrat, apparently (thanks, Aaron Gardner & slammer for the link). Do we still want to play this game? – because it’s really odd: these days it’s like everybody except Republicans / conservatives are out there shooting at people, beating up protesters, or biting fingers off. Are we missing out on all the ‘fun?”
I wasn’t going to bring up the politics of J. Patrick Bedell - mostly because, like Patterico, I figure that the guy was just nuts from the start, and not made that way by listening to Keith Olbermann* – but since the Christian Science Monitor wants to play ‘Spot the Right-wing Extremist!‘ I guess that we’re just going to have to point out that the following characteristics:
- anti-Bush conspiracy theory hysteria
- Arrested for growing marijuana
…do not precisely fit the narrative. And by ‘do not precisely fit’ I mean ‘contradict.’ That first opinion alone is shared by how much of the Democratic party, again?
I swear to God, it’s like some of these people want there to be right-wing crazies attacking everything that moves. Which is sick.
*Glenn’s joking, of course. I mean, seriously: nobody listens to Keith Olbermann.
