The situation in Boston is fluid, to put it mildly. We know the two bombing (and cop-killing) suspects, one of whom is already dead, are brothers who are of Chechan origin, one born in Russia and the other in Kyrgyzstan. They were both in this country legally, and have been here for years. That’s about it.

But what we don’t know didn’t keep Anne Coulter from tweeting:

It’s too bad Suspect # 1 won’t be able to be legalized by Marco Rubio, now.

It’s a token of the ability of our wingnut friends to use everything that happens as a rock to throw at the nearest object that Coulter (who is not alone in this behavior, BTW) chose to exploit this situation to attack immigration reform instead of screaming for the return of the Global War on Terror or bringing Benghazi! Benghazi! back up.
