For that matter it's not confined to the right.  Leftists will flat burn .gov buildings down with agents in them.

This needs to be repeated. For the left, it goes all the way back to at least the weather underground, and goes beyond just attacking feds.

I feel like people keep forgetting that one of the outcomes of Waco and Ruby Ridge was Oklahoma City.  The 90's was a very different culture, but if anything I think crazy folks going hunting for feds if they feel attacked is more likely now.

I recall reading that Timothy McVeigh said before his execution that he wished he had killed the man who shot Vicky Weaver instead of blowing up the federal building.

Political appointee - I'd bet Giffords.

Giffords would be a perfect fit

Yeah, a real gangster move - cuz gangsters love it when something they try doesn't work out, and they have to slink away with their tails between their legs.

“Either this was impossible to win, or the strategy failed,” Chipman told the newspaper, adding, “This was a failure.” Later in the interview, Chipman described nominating someone like him – a lifelong anti-gun activist – as a “gangster move” by White House staff.

I didn't know this was supposed to be about "winning." It has always struck me that an excellent strategy for getting nominees confirmed might be to nominate well-qualified people.

I'm sooooo naive.
