Boston Reporter: For Some Reason I Can't Fathom, Someone Is Playing Amazing Grace on Bagpipes in Boston | Main | BREAKING: Massive Explosion At Fertilizer Plant Near Waco, Texas
April 17, 2013

Evening Headlines

Politico's Dylan Byers says he really wants to know who perpetrated the Boston Massacre so he can get into political mode. Basically he wants to know if he's on Offense or Defense, or, as he puts it, "what sort of national conversation we'll be having," or something like that. (Safe link to The Other McCain.)

Not a safe link, but Buzzfeed makes fun of CNN for goofing so much in their Boston coverage.

Ramesh Ponuru is already declaring Obama's second term a failure, which leads me to ask, along with David Berkowitz, "What took you so long?"

ProgressKY, which bugged McConnell's office, visited the White House days before the group declared Twitter Jihad on McConnell. (Also a buzzfeed link.)

I just got an email from the entire media about that story: What difference does it make?

Sheryl Atkisson:

These survivors had previously been... let's say fearful of prosecution for revealing things that Obama's government would claim to be state secrets. I'm not sure what deal/protection was worked out to get them talking.

Pocketful of Liberty discusses something I worry about -- conservatives becoming "the weird kid" in class.

My initial skepticism about the ricin letters was, I'm sure you all now know, misplaced.

Because, apparently, the only thing that matters anymore is whether the perp was a possible Tea Partier or not (this is what is driving all the heat about the Boston Massacre -- the left wants so bad for this to be the action of someone on the right, so they can use that to further their unending assault on America), I'll note that the messages accompanying the ricin seem to come from someone native born:

"To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance."

And the messages demonstrate a familiarity with American political messaging:

"I am KC and I approve this message."

But then, the first quote is apparently lifted off the 'net, from some chiropractor who originally blogged about insurance matters.

Meanwhile, the fair and balanced Gwen Ifil is spitting nails:

No follow-up concerns about CBS's claim that a white suspect is sought, as noted by @rdbrewer4. Also no good reason given to deny the public such information, except "I don't like it when my tribe might look like it has a wayward member."

Al Sharpton addressed this matter with dignity, grace, and spittle.

Why was No-Drama Obama all Mr. Stompyboots over a personal defeat when he's been notably calm about actual US deaths?
