All over the flipping news now.
Apparently, some crazy fuck went ballistic and started mowing down people at a Congresscritter meeting. The Congress critter is among the victims.
Contradicting reports state that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) is either dead or still in surgery.
Here’s to hoping that it’s the better option and that she makes a full and speedy recovery. This obviously goes for the rest of the victims as well.
The bastard nutjob was apprehended, by the way. Hopefully he’ll fall up the stairs at the local PD about 2,364 times. If there’s anything left of him after that, douse him with gasoline and throw a match at him.
UPDATE: Earlier reports that she had died turned out to be untrue, thank G-d. She’s in critical condition after surgery. Get those prayer wheels turning, please!
