UPDATE: Go With Hope—reports that Gabrielle Giffords is still alive, needs our prayers

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Like all decent people, I am disgusted to hear the sad news out of Tucson, AZ: Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) was shot and killed along with four others today.  Twelve were shot altogether. The murderer was apprehended by heroic bystanders and is in custody.

Not sure of the young murderer’s motives.  I’m sure they weren’t worth killing or dying for.  Except to him. 

Please prayer for the souls of the faithful departed, the well-being of their families, the quick recovery of the wounded, and the delivery of justice.

UPDATE:  It gets worse.  A small child is among the dead. 

And hatemongers at Daily Kos wasted no time in blaming Sarah Palin according to blogger Joel Achenbach at WaPo.

UPDATE 2:  Rep. Giffords reportedly in surgery.  Our prayer are with her.

Leftists like Yglesias, Kos, and HuffPo continue to blame tea party, Breitbart, and Sarah Palin. Disgusting, sick, vile. Here’s an example from HuffPo:

Gabrielle Giffords Shot In The Head

Meanwhile, DailyKos has deleted a damning post from a leftist angry at Giffords for voting AGAINST Nancy Pelosi.  But Jim Treacher grabbed a screen shot before Kos could rewrite history.


UPDATE:  Arizona State Senator Lynda Lopez blames Tea Party for the shooting. If you’d like to talk to Sen. Lopez about it, here’s her contact information:

    As a college professor of Hispanic descent, Vietnam era vet and American Conservative, I would greatly appreciate your not dragging things into the mud with the kind of whiny, premature and infantile game associating the tragic accidents in Tucson to the Teaparty as I have heard you do today. To do so in the manner I have seen reported disqualifies you and any associates from any claim to common decency or competency to be in political office. This a tragedy for all of us, not an opportunity for hacks to make political hay with thoughtless, sanctimonious untruths.
