    I remember during the Iraq war, she questioned one of the generals about the 'carbon footprint' of the tanks and trucks that we had over there.

    She will get a lot more traction on her current area of interest.

    I know. I'm horrified with what happened in that shooting and my heart really does go out to her, her family, and the other victims.

    But I'll say it, even though it is taboo. She was utterly incompetent in her job prior to the shooting.

    Do you think that is "Suprise" or maby "un-scheduled". I don't think it much of a suprise...

    So if it's all over the news, how is it a "surprise?"

    She was a good legislator and represented her district well, but her story is no more compelling than that of Suzanna Gratia Hupp. Both female, both victims of a madman with a gun, but - different sides of the argument.

    Good God... "carbon footprint"... I hate to say it but she's probably more competent now.

    I admire Gabrielle Giffords' tenacious recovery. I'm sorry for the tragedy that befell her. But I didn't agree with her politics before it happened & I'm disgusted (but not surprised) that her dreadful experience & celebrity are now being leveraged for sole purpose of promoting their clearly unconstitutional agenda.

    Yeah, the victim card is almost as good as the race card!

    She entered a silent room with lots of pictures being taken, spoke briefly, non-specifically and then left.

    Why is the mom who defended her home in Georgia there?

    Suzanna Hupp should have been called by the pro 2A side to testify as the perfect counterpoint.

    You know that no matter who else testifies, she will be the face on the evening news and tomorrow's newspapers.

    Yep, since Manti Te'o's girlfriend has now officially been "unidentified", it's time for a brand-new drama masquerading as...news.
