Another day, another must-read

A few months ago, a Census worker was found dead in Kentucky:

[Bill] Sparkman’s nude body was found Sept. 12 by people visiting the cemetery. There was a rope around his neck tied to a tree, and he had what appeared to be the word “fed” written on his chest in black marker.

His census identification card was taped to his head.

In a land where 9/11 terrorists will get a civilian trial where they’ll be innocent until proven guilty, the culprit for this murder couldn’t be clearer: it was conservatives who hate and fear the federal government and stroke these fears among the rubes of Kentucky.  Obviously.

Andrew Sullivan played judge and jury proclaiming “Southern populist terrorism, whipped up by the GOP and its Fox and talk radio cohorts.”  Others blamed the Tea Party movement, Rush Limbaugh, and anyone who thinks the government shouldn’t hold our collective hands.  Read all the details on Michelle Malkin’s site.

Turns out, Sparkman killed himself and made it look like a murder so that his family could collect life insurance.  So, it wasn’t us after all.  Think those a-holes will apologize?  If you die from holding your breath I blame Andrew Sullivan.

In a nutshell, a guy shouts “Allah Akbar !” while he guns down innocent people in front of dozens of eyewitnesses.
Lefties say, “Let’s not jump to conclusions about the motive.”

But when a guy is mysteriously found dead, with no apparent suspects or eyewitnesses, the lefties say, “Let’s jump to conclusions about who we think did it, and what their motive was !”

Let’s say for the sake of argument that the Census worker was murdered. And let’s say the killer wasn’t a right-wing nut, but fan of the “The Silence of Lambs” (1990), which won five Oscars. In the film, it’s explained Hannibal Lecter murdered a Census-taker who tried to test him. Lecter says well-quoted line of eating his liver with Fava beans and a nice Chianti.

Can anyone imagine Andrew Sullivan or other liberals trying to hold director Jonathan Demme, actor Anthony Hopkins, or even author Thomas Harris, who wrote the original book, responsible for the murder?
