  Women Get So Emotional About Murder

Why Is Gabby Giffords So Shrill And Emotional About Guns?

Honestly, there has to be some logical explanation of why she's so touchy
We aren’t quite sure we’ve finished throwing up yet in reaction to this Politico piece about that mean bitch Gabby Giffords, who has made some very cruel, unfair ads about the issue of gun control for some reason: Read more on Why Is Gabby Giffords So Shrill And Emotional About Guns?…

Stalkers And Domestic Abusers Aren’t Allowed To Have Guns, Unfair!

Gabby Giffords at a gun show. Obviously wants to ban all guns
OK, so if 26 dead children in Newtown, and a couple hundred dead kids since then, aren’t a good enough reason to pass gun control of some kind — even just an expansion of background checks to cover gun shows and private sales — maybe the specter of domestic violence would be enough to motivate lawmakers? In hearings today, the Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony on the links between guns and domestic violence, and a new bill to restrict guns from suspects in stalking and domestic violence cases has been introduced by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minnesota). An editorial by Gabby Giffords called on Congress to pass Klobuchar’s bill, and to “address this lethal mix of domestic violence and guns.” Read more on Stalkers And Domestic Abusers Aren’t Allowed To Have Guns, Unfair!…

Larry Pratt Pretty Sure That Congresswomen Should Be Afraid He’ll Shoot Them, For Freedom

Oh hey look everybody! It’s Larry Pratt, emperor of Gun Owners Uber Alles American Style, who we last saw making really confusing Hitler comparisons and explaining that teachers who hide in classrooms during school shootings to protect students are not heroes, they’re pussies.

Joe The Plumber Is Human Garbage, Again

Leading conservative intellectual Joe the Failed Politician Not-Plumber has decided that he has not spewed forth enough frothing filth to remind us all of what a horrible shitpile he is. First, he told the parents of dead kids in Isla Vista to STFU and quit whining about their tragedy because he is a classy fellow. But that was just the tip (heh heh) of the iceberg of stupidity that is Samuel Wurzelbacher: “Guns are mostly for hunting down politicians who would actively seek to take your freedoms and liberty away from you,” Wurzelbacher wrote on Thursday in a blog post on his website. Hahaha, that probably gave Gabby Giffords a good chuckle!  Read more on Joe The Plumber Is Human Garbage, Again…

Gabby Giffords Jumped Out Of A Plane Today While You Probably Just Loafed Around And Did Nothing

[Update: Previous version of the post stated Giffords was jumping tomorrow, but the jump was actually today, to be aired tomorrow.] You know, if we survived a terrible mass shooting complete with massive damage to our bodies, we would probably take that as our ticket to just lie around the rest of our lives and demand that our special person bring us bon bons 24/7. But that is not what you do if you are Gabby Giffords, because Gabby Giffords is a bawse. Today is the third anniversary of the Tucson, Arizona, shooting that left 6 dead, 18 injured, and Giffords in critical condition, and today Giffords marked the occasion by jumping out of a goddamn plane.

  cheaply printed flyers: when internet rumors simply won't do the job

Tucson Hero Saved Gabby Giffords’s Life But Is Unacceptably Gay

Remember how we all were gay for Daniel Hernandez, the awesomest intern in history, who saved Gabby Giffords’s life by applying pressure to her gunshot wounds, keeping her from bleeding out? And how proud we were of his humility and basic decency? Hernandez, who was a student at the University of Arizona at the time, has gotten involved in local politics himself, and now serves on a local school board. And he is now one of four members of that district’s five-member board facing recall elections. We won’t even attempt to make sense of why; as RightWing Watch says, it’s “the kind of byzantine saga found only in local politics.” But some people are apparently not big fans of this guy who literally kept a shooting victim alive with his bare hands, because he is both gay and, for some reason, in favor of gun control. Above is one of the flyers that have reportedly been handed out to parents as they drop their kids off at district schools. The leader of the recall effort against Hernandez says he doesn’t know anything about the flyers. Oh, and also, the leader of the recall effort against Hernandez is the brother-in-law of the school board president. Forget it, Jake; it’s Arizona.

WSJ Columnist Explains Conspiracy Theory for Gabby Giffords Editorial, Crawls Back Under Rock

Since Gabby Giffords reacted to the Senate’s defeat of gun-control legislation with this anguished New York Times op-ed declaring she would not give up the fight, a variety of right-wing pundits have mansplained that Gabby is being “emotional” and not using “logic” and “reason” and is a “bully,” so she should sit down and shut up and not worry her pretty little ventilated head about it. Today comes James Taranto to add his voice to the conversation during an episode of the NRA’s radio show Cam and Company. Taranto is one of those Wall Street Journal columnists who you must assume was dropped on his head a lot as a baby. And as a toddler. And as an adolescent. And as a teenager. And in college. And in his twenties and thirties and all the way up to whatever age he is now. This is really the only explanation for this utter reality-free spew of pig semen he vomited over the airwaves today: Read more on WSJ Columnist Explains Conspiracy Theory for Gabby Giffords Editorial, Crawls Back Under Rock…

Totally Brave Anonymous NRO Writer Does Not Care For Gabby Giffords Calling People ‘Cowards’

Why is Gabby Giffords bullying the US Senate, Instapundit, and, now, the entire brave staff of NRO? She is all laughing at their outfits and telling them to stop trying to make “fetch” happen. She is the meanest. She is the worst. Read more on Totally Brave Anonymous NRO Writer Does Not Care For Gabby Giffords Calling People ‘Cowards’…

Gabby Giffords Bullies Senate, NYT Editorial Page, Again

Gabby Giffords is bullying the United States Senate, again. Senators say they fear the N.R.A. and the gun lobby. But I think that fear must be nothing compared to the fear the first graders in Sandy Hook Elementary School felt as their lives ended in a hail of bullets. The fear that those children who survived the massacre must feel every time they remember their teachers stacking them into closets and bathrooms, whispering that they loved them, so that love would be the last thing the students heard if the gunman found them.

Your Lunchtime Cry-Time: Gabby Giffords Speaks To Congress About Guns

We will just leave this here then. We will not be addressing Sen. Chuck Grassley’s thoughtful rejoinder, or the NRA’s gentle murmurs, as this is Cry-Time, not Vomit-On-Chuck-Grassley-Time or Murder-The-NRA-Time. Nor will we mention that there is currently, as in “as we speak,” a child hostage situation/dead schoolbus driver in Alabama, committed by a man who thinks “the government is out to get him.” Read more on Your Lunchtime Cry-Time: Gabby Giffords Speaks To Congress About Guns…

Connecticut Rep. To Gabby Giffords: Newtown Ain’t Big Enough For The Both Of Us

(Above: Former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords Politicizes the Pledge Of Allegiance) Connecticut state representative (and Assistant Republican Leader) DebraLee Hovey simply did not care for former Congresswoman/current private citizen Gabby Giffords swanning into HER towns (plural) to be all POLITICAL by meeting privately and sans press with the grieving families of Newtown as though she had some sort of unique perspective and/or ability to understand what the families were going through when everybody knows the truth is that Giffords is Pol Pot plus Obama times 9! Why, Hovey did not care for it so much that she took time out from her busy Palm Beach “St. Pete Beach” vacation to put it on her Myface page! Read more on Connecticut Rep.

Better Luck In November At Winning Gabby Giffords’ Seat, Jesse Kelly!

Sad news from Arizona. Menacing idiot Jesse Kelly has lost the special election to replace Gabby Giffords in the House. Giffords’ former district director, Ron Barber — who was also injured the day Giffords was shot — will serve the remaining six months of her term. Luckily, the next election is only six months away! Third time is the charm, right vaguely robotic and suspiciously McVeighish perennial candidate Kelly? Right! Read more on Better Luck In November At Winning Gabby Giffords’ Seat, Jesse Kelly!…

Miss South Carolina Teen USA Now Running For Gabby Giffords’ Seat, Like Such As

Hey Jesse Kelly, Republican dude running for Gabby Giffords’ Arizon seat! What do you think about healthcare, is it a right or a privilege? My belief system is this. The health care for anybody but especially for our nation. The highest quality and lowest cost can only be delivered without the government. What I believe is that all things we drive, we do, health care, anything, is a privilege to some extent. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, those are inalienable rights endowed by your creator. If you’re claiming a right, if you’re going to say anything’s a right, if you’re going to say you have a right to a cell phone, then who has the responsibility to pay for it? That’s what I believe.
