Almost from the moment that the body of census worker, Bill Sparkman was found back in mid September, the left had pointed the bony finger of indignation directly at the right. Sparkman had been found in rural Kentucky, hanged from a tree, hands bound with 'duct tape', with the word "fed" scrawled on his chest. The left was predictably quick to jump to the conclusion that extreme rhetoric from right wing political commentators was at the root of the motivations of the killer or killers.
On Sept. 24th, a Democratic Underground blogger, zulchzulu, published a piece entitled, Handy Guide to how Republicans and Fox News are responsible for Census worker being hanged.
"We need to absolutely expose Glenn Beck, Michele Bachmann, Michelle Malkin, CNN's Lou Dobbs, Michael Steele, Rush Limbaugh and the legion of others parroting right-wing lies for trumping up this nonsense and getting people to now commit murder in a hideous fashion."
The left could have been spared this embarrassment if only Janet Napolitano had done her due diligence as the Homeland Security Czar and seized control of this investigation. She could have recruited Al Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to oversee the investigation in order to ensure the desired outcome. After all, if these people can make the 350 years of global warming known as the 'Medieval Warm Period', and sell that scientific fraud to the world. Surely, they could have handled covering up a little thing like a suicide.
