Fair enough.

So, you think it was just coincidence? I don't think there's anything convenient or arrogant about it...he was rightfully suspicious, given the subject matter of his op-ed and his conclusions, and I don't blame him.

Oh, absolutely. Neither side is perfect and it's my belief that citizens should remain skeptical of the goings-on in government, and not just accept things at face value.

An assumption on my part...

Eh, possibly. But you should know how he leans politically by now. I know you've frequented this site longer than I have.

Indeed. I was wrong to imply that you were, but you shouldn't be surprised that your response might incite a retaliatory remark. Anyway, again, you shouldn't let his perennially liberal comments get to you. You may not find them pertinent to score reviews, but this is CC's site after all, i.e., he can do and say what he likes. Since most of my views could be aligned with liberal stances, his politically-charged statements generally don't bother me, and more often than not engender a smirk or laughter. However, I can see how they might bother those who have more conservative leanings. I just suggest you try to shrug it off and move on, though.
