Pentagon Shooter Was a Truther, Anti-Bush Loon
(Bumped)

As I wrote just after the I AM DR. AMY BISHOP rampage, I dislike the practice of associating killers and crazy people with either the Left or the Right. I do not believe that Amy Bishop's far Left views caused her crazy or compelled her to commit her crimes. I do not believe that the communist ramblings of Joe Stack led him inexorably to fly a plane into a building.

Nor do I believe that Trutherism and anti-Bush hysteria led John Patrick Bedell to attack the Pentagon today. Patterico did the leg-work there, so click over and see for yourself. I note his stupid beliefs only because idiots among the sinestrosphere will no doubt shamelessly attempt to portray Bedell as a Tea Partier.

In other words, it's important to know this only because our vacuous opponents will not hesitate to slime us by implying a Tea Party or Republican connection that does not exist.

Oh, and at least Bedell had the decency to die following his idiotic attack.

Teabagger Terrorist? [ace] The media is of course pushing the "Teabagger" angle here. Whether he can be determined as having attended a Tea Party rally or not, his politics were stone-cold crank and conspiracy-theorist -- and decidedly anti-Bush.

That doesn't make him a left-winger, either. But it puts him in the Alex Jones/Twoofer camp, whatever that is.
