I'm not sure I understand timbo's comments. He puts down the writer of this article and then proceeds to commit his own sins by suggesting people who don't agree with him are stupid, and that this article is written by one of those. I reread the article I can't see anything that suggests the writer is a "stupid" liberal. Unless maybe timbo is saying you must be either stupid or liberal to want to support charities? Is that it?
That said, I still don't understand why a Chamber of Commerce in Tennessee would invite Alabama's football coach to give a speech. I can't imagine anyone who went to UT, Vanderbilt, Memphis, UT Chattanooga, or any other Division I Tennessee school would be happy about this.
