Gabrielle Giffords shooting  Reply with quote  

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/08/gabrielle-giffords-shot-c_n_806211.html

Democrat from AZ. Shot point blank in the head.

She's on Sarah Palin's "targeted list" replete with gun sights.

One of the things Palin disagreed with her enough to put her in her sights was gun control...

I would assume they are going to get what they want because the governor of AZ is a republican, right? So she'll be replaced by a republican in congress.

Sick fucking country.

2 Girls 1 Cup didn't even make me blink...
...but this makes me sick.

And the picture they're using on FoxNews.com is making me even sadder..
...she looks so happy.... and alive. And that's a sweet jacket...




Fuck.

I would bet an arm and leg that this guy is a huge fan of Beck, Hannity, O'Reilly and an avid listener of Rush Limbaugh. Just wait, that little nugget of information will come out quite soon.

I would bet an arm and leg that Beck, Hannity, O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh are all hoping it turns out to be an illegal immigrant from Mexico.

They don't hold an election in a case like this?

Regardless, yes, this is fucking sickening. Yeah that picture is tearing me up too. Yeah, she looks evil. Better take her out.

The governor elects an intern replacement upon the death (hopefully not the case with Rep. Giffords) of a representative. Then they do an special election for a replacement.



This is what got me.

latest reports are that doctors are optimistic she will survive.

def glad to hear it.

so if this was politically motivated its a terrorist attack and should be treated as such, correct?

early reports on the ID of the suspect dont necessarily confirm this was the case, but it has to be a possibility.
