Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks has been having an ongoing debate with John Hinderaker of Powerline on the subject of Jose Padilla. It's been a fascinating exercise in realizing how little one can debate with the classic conservative authoritarian mindset. Especially one that doesn't require facts to assert his side of the debate. The back and forth has left Cenk with just one question: Is John Hinderaker Ignorant or Purposefully Misleading?

I know which side I fall on, but I'm interested in hearing your take.

Can you help us out?
