This wild-eyed leftest website says he's an evil conservative

Of course anyone who's read his books knows that in highly unlikely. He's probably targeted for his absence of politics at times, being a christian and his willingness to speak to everyone. His book title, talking to strangers, exudes that.

I've read a few of his books, tipping point was/is still my favorite, Blink might be my least favorite but I still find myself "thin slicing" images and scenarios so obviously I didn't hate it.

But calm down, the IE isn't turning blue, it is and has been for a while purple to purplish red. depending on the area. But those who are democrats are not usually progressive democrats. As a 30 year resident I can say the average IE resident has and always will have a chip on their shoulder when it comes to coastal elites with their gas taxes, disdain for freeways and fascination with density. Even Scaredy likes his land and his distance to his neighbors. Gladwell is interesting, I'd watch him speak. But I also like watching certain golfers play and certain musicians perform, and taking my clothes to certain dry cleaners, none of whom can influence my politics.
