… it’s all fun and games and angry town halls and Teabaggapalooza Parades until someone actually “waters the tree of liberty” and hangs a goverment worker from it:
The FBI is investigating the hanging death of a U.S. Census worker near a Kentucky cemetery, and a law enforcement official told The Associated Press the word ‘fed” was scrawled on the dead man’s chest.
The body of Bill Sparkman, a 51-year-old part-time Census field worker and occasional teacher, was found Sept. 12 in a remote patch of the Daniel Boone National Forest in rural southeast Kentucky. The Census has suspended door-to-door interviews in rural Clay County, where the body was found, pending the outcome of the investigation.
Investigators are still trying to determine whether the death was a killing or a suicide, and if a killing, whether the motive was related to his government job or to anti-government sentiment. (emphasis mine)
The Teabagosphere is worried… no, not about the victim and his family (what were you thinking!?), but about whether the murder might make them look bad.
Did someone say “Fifth column of insanity”?
UPDATE: Cliff has more to say.
