What happened in Tucson, AZ this past Saturday, was just horrible and uncalled for. Whether part of the blame can be put on Sarah Palin with the posting of the 20 people she had targeted last year, with gun sights pointed at them, is unconscionable. I will not be judge and jury, as for Palin leading the gunman on.
About and hour and half after the carnage, Palin took down the map depicting, the people that she wanted voted out. Could it be a sign of guilt, for doing what she did? Or did someone advise her to be done with it. Only Sarah can answer that.
With that said, the best thing for Palin to do is, is enough with the nonsense, the vile and hatred she spews, and not even think of running for president in 2012. If she does decide to run, here’s hoping that every Democrat, Republican, Independent or what political party belongs to, to remember the asinine and utter crap she spits out of her mouth. Also we don’t need to here anymore of her so-called commentary on Fox News, which by the way, I refuse to watch.
Sarah Palin is no Rachel Maddow, and never will be.
What happened today in Tucson, AZ in one word: senseless. In a perfect world, this would not have happened. But, in reality, we don’t live in a perfect world, so we have so put with the bad with the good. I personally don’t know Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, but I am sure she is a good person, and my heart goes out to her, her family, and to the people that elected her to represent them in Washington.
I just hope the person who did this, was not influenced by the likes of: Palin, Beck, Fox News, and the other right wingers, who don’t seem to have a care about the truth. Hopefully we will find out what motivated him to do this.
Indeed it is a senseless tragedy.
US Representative Gabrielle Giffords an Arizona Democrat, was shot point-blank in the head, at a constituent meeting, outside a Safeway store, in the northwest part of Tucson. At least 11 other people are injured, and some presumed dead. Reports say that the gunman walked up to Giffords, stood about four feet away, shot her, and then went on his rampage. He was finally tackled by a bystander, and arrested. Reports say that he was in his late teens or early twenties.
It’s a sad day, when a Congresswoman, a Senator, mayor or what ever branch of government they may represent, can go outside, meet with people, and have their lives threatened, or taken away. Its time that we take a good hard look at the gun laws in every state, and do something about strenthening the gun laws.
