Friday TomFoolery

It's time for the Friday afternoon news dump, and via Instapundit, we learn that the media didn't want to cover the note in the boat
Do you how much media 
effort has been devoted to 
unearthing what Dzhokhar Tsarnaev apparently thought was his last will and testament? But somehow, the cops held it tight until yesterday. . . . No big surprises in the note in the boat. The Joker said his brother Speedbump was a “martyr in paradise,” and that the victims in Boston were “collateral damage” for Muslim civilian casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan. He praised Allah and said, “When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims.” Tell that to the Syrians, EBT boy.
The big question is, Why the monthlong blackout on the note in the boat? Why didn’t the feds release it immediately?
And the answer is obvious. It didn’t fit the Politically Correct narrative, that the reasons for this shocking atrocity remained a mystery, a riddle, an enigma, wink wink nudge nudge.
Yeah.  Demonizing Tea Partiers is politically correct, but demonizing Islam is off limits.  I get it.

From the same Isty page we learn that the IRS didn't want to fess up to targeting conservatives before the election.   Oh, they knew about it, they just didn't want to stop it, or say anything about it until the Lightworker was safely elected.
“[I]f this fact came out in September 2012, in the middle of a presidential election? The terrain would have looked very different.”
Different indeed, Mitt Romney might be president.  We'll never know if the IRS threw the election, but it certainly looks like they were working toward that end.

I'm going to declare Happy Hour and in another hour or so, follow Milady to the auction.  Tomorrow, I'll be at the local club for a pistol match.  You can see the stages at the link here. I'll be running the 1915 Colt 1911 at this match.  I've never shot it other than function checks and it's time to see how it runs.
