Where Are the Apologies?

In the immediate aftermath of the Boston bombings, the same leftists who regularly play Church Lady in admonishing against premature accusations were out in force with innuendo  --  innuendo being the only thing available  --  pinning the murders on conservatives, tax protesters, the Tea Party and, yes, Senate Republicans.

The list includes New York Times columnist Nicolas Kristof, who, in an amazing leap of "logic," wrote, "[E]xplosion is a reminder that ATF needs a director.  Shame on Senate Republicans for blocking apptment."  (Kristof did not get around to explaining what the ATF had to do with this, much less that the previous director had to resign because of Eric Holder's "Fast and Furious" scandal).  (Under subsequent pressure, Kristof did walk back and delete his comment).

The list also includes the steadfast anti-American 400-pounder, Michael Moore, who helpfully observed that the bombings occurred on "Tax Day.  Patriots Day,"  and then that "2+2 =  "  That's it, Michael!  Figuring out that the bombing was the work of tax protesters on Patriot's Day is as easy as 2+2!  Gosh, why did we spend all that time tracking down those Islamic radical brothers?

Then there was MSNBC's Luke Russert, CNN's Peter Bergen, and Hardball's Chris Matthews, who ominously pointed out that Boston was a "liberal city," the plain implication being that the bombing was the work of revenge-lusting conservatives.  A partial list of the smears is here.  If any of our readers has heard a single apology for this rancid stuff, please let me know.
