    someone is listing the huffington post and face book as credible sources?

    It's not opinion piece. What could be more credible about what Sarah Palin's FB page says than................Sarah Palin's FB page? What could be a more credible source for an events page, than a screen shot of the events page?

    Our friend KUDRA who posts here is in the Arizona area - I wonder if SHE is O.K. ? Or what she has heard locally ? Wife and I might call her soon to see how she is. What an awful, awful disaster ! Very sad

    I don't care what your political leanings are, there is no excuse for using those opinions in a violent way to promote an agenda.

    With that being said, we should let the facts come out before we start finger pointing at the Tea Party, Sarah Palin or any other group we don't personally agree with. Won't those quick to accuse feel silly if it turns out that the shooting was done by someone with no political or philosophical motivation?

    Let Rep. Giffords fight for her life and let the perpetrator be brought to justice!

    Update (AP):Federal judge John Roll was at the event and reportedly wounded, but Fox News just broke in to say that he’s been killed. He was appointed by Bush 41.

    President Obama issued a statement at 3:15 ET, calling for Americans to pray for Giffords and the other victims. Homeland Security Secretary JAnet Napolitano, the former governor of Arizona, issued a statement at 3:40 in which she said, "There is no place in our society or discourse for such senseless and unconscionable acts of violence." House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's office issued a statement this afternoon calling it a "national tragedy." House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued a statement condemning the attack. Her opponent from the November election, Jesse Kelly, issued a statement offering sympathy, and a statement from former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (R) offered condolences to Giffords' family and the other victims. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told the New York Daily News "Whoever did this; whatever their reason, they are a disgrace to Arizona, this country and the human race."

    A Republican was shot too? Fox News will be all over that! To be "fair and balanced" of course.
