So just as a way to understand how the news media could be so incompetent. What would cause someone to even think to try to link this individual to the tea party? Who when covering this event would even relate the two. Does that mean that the Columbine shooters had links to the tea party before it began to rise?
What it really points out is that despite the facts (which are pesky and stubborn things) there is a rampant and hideously insane desire to not just destroy the tea party but to link it with any kind of evil act. Strange, it is so easy to link Socialists and communists with evil acts (Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Lenin, Leon Czolgosz [the guy that assasinated McKinley], etc, etc, etc. Now add Brian Ross to the list!
