    He insulted Gligoric.
    Doesn't like Serbs.
    Too short.
    Wears ugly wrist watches (and before OTB game puts it off as polce interrogator).
    Trashed out Hubner.
    Incomprehensible style (as what Fischer would say for Alekhine).

    one of those statements is non-essential

    So it served him right.

    Perhaps Mr. Kasparov would be better off writing chess books. He seems to be a failure on the political front.

    He goes for what he thinks is right. Playing chess even at the highest levels is still just chess. I suppose the dude is trying to fight for his country and his brothers.

    Even the worst defender is still a defender. Out side of chess I would never of heard of the guy. Pussy Riot stands up for the Russian movement much better, but they are a terrible band. Yet that all they are is a band. GO figure.
