He is a real lefty because he disagrees with one thing on the Bush agenda? And you want an alcoholic to start drinking again because he disagrees with you? That says a lot more about you than it does about him!!!
And yes, he is a conservative, he was supporting the most conservative canidate in the country, Tom McClintock, for Lieutanent Govenor or California. He is conservative on every issue.
The war in Iraq is more than one thing in the Bush agenda, and Gibson attacked the war for his own selfish PR/Damage Control. He also said Jews caused all of the wars throughout history. That sounds like the leftist propaganda spouted by extremists on every colege campus in the country.
I do not seriously hope he starts drinking again. I was joking. I don't concern myself with what Gibson does in his personal life unless it effects other people. Gibson showed no concern for anyone other than himself when he decided to get completely drunk and drive. Then he tries to improve his image by attacking our efforts in Iraq.
I am also not buying into this mentality that Gibson is the victim and alcohol is to blame. I hope he does straighten his life out, but he needs to worry about his own problems rather than attacking US foreign policy.
