Freed from the shackles of decorum, you just knew he was going to rip the gloves off and begin spouting whatever kind of insane horseshit popped into his brain in whichever direction he could. That’s the attitude that led to his first post-office op-ed, subtly titled 'You’re Not Free If You Can’t Secede from an Oppressive Government.'
