Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Shooting

I’ve been out all day and am just now catching up to today’s shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The spinning seems to be way ahead of actual news.

Among other things, someone has dug up this “target” graphic published last year on Sarah Palin’s facebook page. Rep. Giffords was one of the Democrats in the crosshairs.

See Robert Naiman for more about Palin’s map.

There’s all kinds of stuff coming out about the shooter’s myspace page that makes him out to be an anti-government whackjob, but at least some commenters are claiming that the page was erected after the shooting. So I’m not going to draw any conclusions about him until there is more information.

However, I predict that by tomorrow morning the Right Blogosphere will be stuffed with blog posts explaining why the shooter is a leftist-liberal-Obama supporter.

The congresswoman is stil alive as of this writing, but reports are she was shot in the head. Six other people, including a federal judge and a 9-year-old girl, are dead.
