Bomb Suspect is Pakistani? Darn That Glenn Beck!

News reports indicate that law-enforcement officials investigating Saturday’s attempted car-bombing in Time Square are now seeking a suspect with ties to Pakistan. Ah, but Monday morning — before this latest development in the investigation was reported — liberal blogger Susie Madrak wrote:

You know, I don’t want to jump to conclusions here, because that would make me too much like Matt Drudge. But if the car bomber was indeed a white guy in his 40s who didn’t know the difference between ammonium nitrate and plain old fertilizer, I’m thinking it’s gotta be a Beck Patriot who was trying to water the tree of liberty with… the blood of random Times Square tourists. . . .
Ah, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe it’s a Limbaugh listener.

Less than 12 hours later, with egg on her face, Madrak engages in some rather bizarre projection:

Oh darn, looks like the wingnut team scores! No, seriously, isn’t it just a little wacky that some people are more interested in who they get to blame than in the fact that someone tried to blow up Times Square?

No, Ms. Madrak, you were the one who was “more interested in . . . blame.” This reminds me very much of the Left’s rush to blame Glenn Beck in the Sparkman case in Kentucky. Neither Andrew Sullivan (“Southern populist terrorism“) nor Rick Ungar (“Send the Body to Glenn Beck“) has ever apologized for their misguided speculation in a case that ultimately proved to be a suicide, rather than a right-wing hate crime.
