And the Dave Neiwert Decade continues.

A man apparently bent on destroying the police headquarters in McKinney was shot and killed this morning after spraying the building with bullets.

Police say 29-year-old Patrick Gray Sharp drove a Ford F150 pickup pulling a trailer to the station and set it on fire in an apparent attempt to draw people out of the building. Inside the trailer, police said, were wood chips, roadside flares, gasoline, and ammonium nitrate fertilizer, the type used in the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City.

Since conservatives love profiling: we’ve got a white male, 29, from (very) rural North Texas driving a Ford pickup armed with an Oklahoma City-type bomb.

Call me crazy, but I’m guessing he’s not a card-carrying member of PETA.

A Patrick Sharp of Anna had a MySpace page that showed a man holding a number of firearms. One caption read, “I love guns more than toothpaste.”

Another photo showed a steel plate that had been shot up. The caption read, “What if that was your face?” A third image showed a target with a photo of Osama bin Laden.

Looking forward to hearing how Mr. Sharp wasn’t “right-wing” or “conservative” — but just “a nut.”

$100 bucks says he owns a copy of Glenn Beck’s Common Sense.

PS.

If this guy’s name had been, say, Mohammed Abdelnaby, how big would the wignut Memeorandum circle jerk be right now?
