Michael Moore celebrates being partly right in his prediction of the Boston Marathon bombings suspects

Michael MooreMichael Moore is thrilled that the authorities have identified suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings — not because justice is being served — but because he guessed right that the culprits weren’t women.

He posted the following on Twitter Friday morning after authorities revealed the two suspects were brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Congratulations Michael! You had a 50-50 chance of getting that one right.

But the filmmaker still isn’t apologizing for wrongfully accusing the Tea Party for Monday’s bombings. His theory that right-wing extremists were behind the bombings was debunked when it was discovered that the two were immigrants from the Chechnyan region of Russia.

It also turns out that law enforcement officials didn’t find Moore’s argument that the bombings were related to the Tea Party because they occurred on both Patriot’s Day and Tax Day credible either.

Sadly, Moore’s not the only one who needs to issue an apology for wrongly pointing fingers at “right wingers.” MSNBC hosts Chris Matthews and Lawrence O’Donnell, and NPR correspodent Dina Temple-Raston also need to fess up for their comments this week.
