Stay classy @cenkuygur. Way to try to take advantage of a major tragedy.—

With next-to-nothing yet confirmed about the explosions in Boston today and only vague reports of a “person in interest” in custody, Current TV’s Cenk Uygur is already engaging in not only speculation, but some really bizarre math as well.
What? While sensible people are holding off on finger-pointing with so little yet known, Uygur is not only speculating that a Muslim bomber might have been behind the explosions — he’s prejudging America’s proportionate outrage if that turns out to be the case. Aren’t you ashamed for thinking what Uygur knew you were going to think?
Our reaction as a country? For most of us, it’s horror, followed by calls to #PrayForBoston and a rush of people asking what they can do to help.
