Well, in theory "taking the high road" is always the right thing to do, but in practice it simply lets those "taking the low road" to develop the narrative, and believe me, they're hard at work. Shit, if the Shrub were still in power we would have undoubtedly bombed some random country by now. And you already have at least one GOP congressman complaining that we need to slow down immigration reform in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing.
It's no accident that Ned Flanders was the first to jump the story. And it's also no accident that his facts were wrong. And predictably, Leroy also seems to have troubles imagining that this was anything other than Islamic terrorists doing what they do best. But before people start stabbing their cabbies or shooting up Sikh temples, perhaps the fringe lunatics deserve a little pushback to at least acknowledge that they don't have all of the facts.
I don't know who bombed the Boston Marathon, but at least I admit that I don't know.
