Wasn’t it a heartwarming and remarkable display of bipartisan comity to see the House of Representatives united in their support for the idea that U.S. Congressmen and Congresswomen should not be shot in the face when meeting with constituents? Awesome! (H/t to Fratguy for this observation.)
Although I have nothing against her politics, I’m glad that Gabrielle (Gabby) Giffords finally resigned. Her recovery appears to be remarkable so far, but it’s been apparent for months that she is not up to really serving her district in the way it deserves. It’s monstrously unfair, and I still think her shooting and the deaths of so many others should be discussed in terms of a political assassination attempt, but still: she can’t represent Tucson at this point in her life.
