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.
