    Tragic. So hard waiting to hear about the safety of friends and friends' families.

    Re: Dem. Congresswoman Shot in Arizona

    All the talking heads I'm hearing seem certain that this is politically motivated. They talk about it like it's a known fact. I don't know how they know that. But they're basically echoing what the sheriff has said.

    ::

    Rep. Grijalva (D-AZ) just a few minutes ago on CNN, and I'm paraphrasing but this is close to a direct quote: "What we say, and how we say it, matters."

    That's the best synopsis I've heard on this issue.

    I'm hearing reports (from CNN I think) that Rep. Giffords was shot 'point blank' in the head. Her appearance was obviously promoted before hand, so the shooter would have known she was there. If that's the case, it sounds politically motivated to me.

    If this turns out to be a second amendment remedy, Sharon Angle, Sarah Palin, and every whack-job that showed up to tea-bagger rallies with a gun strapped to their hip, should be held responsible.

    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
    BTW, Rep. Giffords was not on Sarah Palin's target map.

    Maybe not Kirk but Sarah has taken her website with that picture down.

    It's also being confirmed that Judge John Roll is among those killed. I believe he was a Federal judge.

    From Rep Giffords father:

    Her father Spencer Giffords, 75, wept when asked if his 40-year-old daughter had any enemies.
    "Yeah," he told The Post. "The whole tea party."

    It's also being confirmed that Judge John Lowell is among those killed. I believe he was a Federal judge.
    Even if the shooting didn't have political "reasons", I cannot believe a politician of a democratic party would put up a website like this. WTF is wrong with her?

    NBC News is reporting that the Federal Judge has died. They're also reporting that Rep. Giffords was talking before being taken into surgery.

    The target map was just taken down today, following this shooting?

    FOX (yes, I've switched to FOX for shits and giggles) is reporting that the perpetrator is a 22-year-old veteran who served in Afghanistan. But it's so early, that could be totally wrong.

    I'm watching FOX too. LOL.

    We're puzzles. (Plus, I like Shepard Smith). He just said all FOX can confirm is that the shooter is a 22 year old white male.
