Democratic Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is shot, possibly killed (reports vary). Interestingly, a New York Times article reporting on the shooting made no mention of her political affiliation — one of the most spectacular examples I’ve seen of a news article leaving out precisely the most interesting fact, I suppose, in the interest of appearing nonbiased.

One note about Giffords:

She is married to Navy Capt. Mark Kelly, a NASA astronaut who is scheduled to lead a space shuttle mission to the International Space Station.

Only absolute fools make political productions, but I’m going to predict this hastens the demise of Sarah Palin’s political future.

    I knew a lot of assholes would use this incident to club Republicans over the head. Kind of disapointed to see you get in on it so quickly.

    Well, from what I can tell, the guy who did this sounds like one of these Alex Jones, whacked out past terms like liberal or conservative types. Still, Palin did publish a big map with Gifford’s district in the crosshairs. I can’t see how this helps her (Palin that is.)

    That’s an interesting point and I will take into consideration.

    Hey, last night on TCM I saw a cool Sixties Movie called “Model Shop”. This guy was about to be inducted into the Army to go to Vietnam and was just being all “Alienated” and stuff. But then he finds out that this Mysterious French Woman he is infatuated with is a Model in this weird business where you pay to take pictures of sexy babes in lingerie. You pick the Model, they give you a camera with film, and the two of you go into a room and SNAP SNAP SNAPPITTY SNAP. Anyway, he falls in love with her, gives her all his money so she can go back to France with her kid, and he attains SPIRITUAL FULFILLMENT. It’s a Sixties Movie.

    That actually sounds a lot like “the victim.”

    Did you know that at the end of every British Sea Power performance a giant bear monster attacks the band and there is a tremendous battle in British Sea Power emerges TRIUMPHANT?

    That is cool.
