Not all sad news, let’s not forget the Good News™ that she survived the cowardly assassination attempt and that her recovery has been, and continues to be, quite marvelous. Also, respect is due for a politician who puts her ability to properly represent her constituents above her personal desire for office.
The sad news is, of course, that she should ever have to face this choice due to the despicable acts of a madman.
We’re not a banana republic, even though Ear Leader and his NSDWP are desperately trying to turn us into one, and I’d like to keep it that way.
All the best and prayers go out to Gabby Giffords. Get well, be well, and may G-d grant you many, many joyful years ahead.
