Gabby Giffords to Resign

Sad news.

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.

    When I heard the news, I wasn’t surprised. But it is still unfortunate that she had to endure the whole procedure of being shot.

    LC Old Dog growls and barks:

    I for one live in Gabby Giffords district. While she was and is a Democrat she was one the the breed that we could live with, she was the classic Blue Dog Democrats. She was a rabid supporter of the 2nd Amendment (a CCW permit of her own) and against undocumented immigration.

    Now we have to work like hell to keep them from shoving a real DemProg in her place!

    The Lone Haranguer growls and barks:

    She was IS a nice lady who didn’t deserve this.

    She looks much better in her recent photos. In the last, a few months ago, her face and eyes looked lopsided. I hope for a full recovery.

    Although this is often called “the Gabrielle Giffords shooting,” let us not forget the people who died.

    LC Old Dog says:

    Now we have to work like hell to keep them from shoving a real DemProg in her place!

    That’s *exactly* what’s going to happen; my money’s on that Rodney Glassman punk.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if upgrading from blue-moderate to blue-solid was the Party Leadership’s motivation for getting her to step aside so early in the year.

    Seeing the latest redistricting maps, we are going to be out of her District and the one that was redefined is going to be solid DemProg!
