The FBI and I don’t know who planted the bombs in Boston.Â Nor does Susan Collins, Senator from Maine.Â She, however, isÂ willing to speculate (from Dave Weigel at Slate):
â€œWhenever we have an attack like this itâ€™s difficult not to think that itâ€™s somehow involved in Islamic extremism,â€ said Maine Sen. Susan Collins, until recently a top member of the Homeland Security committee and still a prime mover on security bills. â€œI donâ€™t have evidence to back that up. Thatâ€™s just based on previous attacks.â€
This is really dumb–“based on previous attacks” is evidence.Â Really bad evidence.Â Via Ballon Juice:
Maybe there ought to be some kind of history test for Senator.
