For MEB, forever.
Usually the Thanksgiving Turkey doesn't really volunteer to be the dinner, like the Chick Fil-A meme with Cows and "Ate more chiken."
Thus, if there is a "Teabagger" movement, in the theory of Public Choice, applying tools of rational interest a la economics to public sector activities, it can hardly be a surprise that government workers might not be the biggest fans of Teabaggers in the IRS inclusive.
Surprise, surprise, surprise.
That doesn't mean the dreaded "Teabaggers" are right, just that it can't be claimed that its rocket science that government types might not be particularly enthusiastic about their movement, since the government worker types are the Thanksgiving Turkey/Chick Fil-A Cow.
(I think the Tea Party people have lost their mind on national security, if, we may have a weird alliance now Old Left and New Right that is going to have us learning some punishing old lessons again, if hopefully not... .)
It's actually sort of good news in a way as to some "vast Left-wing conspiracy," as opposed to the garden variety "vast Right-wing conspiracy." You don't have to implicate the President, Holder, or any of the Usual Suspects, other than government workers being generally speaking unenthusiastic about being put out of work in mass, like the Thanksgiving Turkey: "Cut that out, and do what the cow says, Et mas pollo."
And, in defense of government workers and other alleged "rent-seekers" so beloved of Public Choice and Libertarian types everywhere, having worked in the private and public sector in a large variety of roles as to being able to observe things, the biggest unsurprise is.... the grass is always greener, and someone else is always allegedly lazier and of less-value.
Some of the hardest working people in the world are government workers, called soldiers and K-12 teachers in urban school districts, when they stay with it, when no one else in the country will, parents sometimes included.
