Suicide Pilot = Teapartier?

From WaPo.

But after reading his 34-paragraph screed, I am struck by how his alienation is similar to that we’re hearing from the extreme elements of the Tea Party movement.

Did anyone read his suicide note?

Look at the end of page six, that’s all you need to know.

Interestingly, that minor detail is left out of the WaPo version of the note.

Here’s the real ending:

Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, let’s try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well.

The communist creed: From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.

The capitalist creed: From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.

Here’s WaPo’s:

Coincidence, right?  Just a mistake in the cutting and pasting is all.  He just forgot to select that part.  This in no way implies that what was forgotten would have undermined the Teaparty accusation.
