We’ll of course wait for official confirmation on that first.

Bombers’ uncle calls Tsarnaev brothers ‘losers'; father calls Dzhokhar an ‘angel'; Video added

What kind of man was deceased Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev? According to his uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, he was a loser:

Interview on BBC with the uncle of Boston Marathon bomber, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, just described him as a ‘loser’.

uncle of Boston bomber describing his nephew as ‘simply a loser’ haha

— Iwan Izzard (@IwanIzzard) April 19, 2013

And, in Tsarni’s mind, not only was Tamerlan a loser, but he deserved to die for what he had done:

Uncle of the bomber who was killed said “good. He deserved it.”

Suspects’ uncle on WBZ just used “prick” to describe bomber. After learned one was dead. “He deserved that.””At, ay, ay” #watertown

Tsarni offered more insight into both brothers on MSNBC:

Ruslam Tsarni, uncle of suspects, discussing situation on MSNBC right now.

None of it was flattering:

Uncle says he is ashamed of his nephews. His family is not associated with them.Calls them losers.

— Breeanne Howe (@breeannehowe) April 19, 2013

Uncle asked what caused his nephews to do the Boston bombing: “Being losers.”

— Andrew Kaczynski (@BuzzFeedAndrew) April 19, 2013

Uncle of Boston bombers: “He put a shame on our family. He put a shame on the entire Chechen ethnicity.”

Uncle of bombers furiously condemns nephew on NBC: “He put a shame on our family….he put a shame on the entire Chechen ethnicity.”

Suspects’ uncle on MSNBC says his nephews were radicalized, they were not able to “settle themselves” and hated everyone who did.

— Teri Christoph (@TeriChristoph) April 19, 2013

Uncle distancing himself from nephews.

— Breeanne Howe (@breeannehowe) April 19, 2013

Sounds like much of the family had disowned them. I feel for this uncle, who is a Muslim who has embraced the U.S.

— Teri Christoph (@TeriChristoph) April 19, 2013

For the record, the boys’ father, Anzor Tsarnaev, only has praise for younger brother Dzhokhar:

BREAKING: Father of Boston bombing suspect says son is accomplished medical student and ‘a true angel’.

— The Associated Press (@AP) April 19, 2013

“My son is a true angel,” the elder Tsarnaev said. “He is such an intelligent boy. We expected him to come on holidays here.”

— ilyadavliatchin 25- (@Dao__) April 19, 2013

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s father said his son is “a true angel”.Actually sir, your son is an evil terrorist.

— Zach Newman (@Z_Newman) April 19, 2013

And he issued this warning:

“@abc: Story: Boston bomb suspect’s dad tells him to surrender, warns “hell will break loose” if son dies abcn.ws/11o7qw8

— News Talk 96.5 WDBO (@WDBO) April 19, 2013

Wow. Is that a threat?

Father of angel who isn’t a terrorist: “Hell will break lose here if my son dies”

— Bill O’Keefe (@DefendWallSt) April 19, 2013

It sounds like the bombers’ uncle should have raised them, not their own father. #Boston

— Seth (@dcseth) April 19, 2013

For what it’s worth:

RT @melindadc: Uncle: ‘Somebody radicalized them, but not my brother, who spent his life bringing bread to their table & fixing cars.’

‘Tell that to Edie Littlefield Sundby': Sebelius won’t delay O-care because cancer

Because of course it isn’t.

In testimony before the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said delaying Obamacare implementation is not an option.

Why not? Cancer.

Translation:

What about people like stage IV gallbladder cancer survivor Edie Littlefield Sundby who can’t keep the doctors who saved her life thanks to Obamacare?

The administration is too busy smearing Ms. Sundby to worry about how Obamacare implementation is interfering with her cancer treatment.

We know the feeling:

So, no delay. Forward!

Same-Sex Couples Make Their Cases To The Justices

On Friday, briefs are being filed in the cases challenging bans on same-sex couples’ marriages in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee.

Carolyn Kaster / AP

WASHINGTON — The first formal step in the marriage cases before the Supreme Court happened Friday, as the same-sex couples in four midwest states asked the justices to strike down bans that prevent them from marrying or having their marriages granted elsewhere recognized in the states.

When the court announced in January that it would be hearing the cases out of Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee, it set a schedule requiring the couples or, in one case, widower, to file their briefs with the court by Friday.

In two of the cases — Kentucky and Michigan — lawyers for same-sex couples argued that the Constitution requires states to license same-sex couples’ marriages. In the Kentucky case, as well as in the Ohio and Tennessee cases — lawyers argued the states must recognize marriages of same-sex couples that were granted elsewhere.

The first brief whose filing was announced on Friday was in a pair of cases out of Ohio, both of which deal with recognition of marriages previously granted to same-sex couples in other states. The brief’s filing was announced at 10 a.m.

Shortly thereafter, the couples in Tennessee — also seeking recognition of their marriages granted elsewhere — filed their brief, as did couples in Kentucky seeking the right to marry and the right to have marriages granted elsewhere recognized.

A bit before 11:30 a.m., the final brief came in from the Michigan couple seeking to marry in that state.

The states’ briefs defending the bans will be due in a month, by March 27.
