I am going to suggest that Jared Laughner, the alledged shooter in the violent assault against Congresswoman Gifford had no political motives. The news has commented on several occasions that two of his favorite books were the Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf. But they fail to mention that these “favorite” books were way down in the list of other favorites following Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland. This is the list from his My Space account before it was taken down according to the Huffington Post.
"Animal Farm, Brave New World, The Wizard Of OZ, Aesop Fables, The Odyssey, Alice Adventures Into Wonderland, Fahrenheit 451, Peter Pan, To Kill A Mockingbird, We The Living, Phantom Toll Booth, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Pulp,Through The Looking Glass, The Communist Manifesto, Siddhartha, The Old Man And The Sea, Gulliver's Travels, Mein Kampf, The Republic, and Meno."
