The New York Post has a story on the Giffords shooting, and her weeping father goes there.
This is apparently exclusive, though you never know with the Post:
Her father Spencer Gifford, 75, wept when asked if his 40-year-old daughter had any enemies.
"Yeah," he told The Post. "The whole tea party."
The dad, who was rushing to University Medical Center in Tuscon, said that politicians constantly faced danger.
"They always get threat[ened]," Gifford cried.
Not much more to say, until we learn more about the killer.
But I'm certain he did not vote for Giffords, I'll betcha he is a tea partier/militia type, and I wonder if he was paying attention to Glenn Beck this week (h/t Will Bunch):
We cannot as a nation survive much longer. We must take a page from our own history at the Alamo and "draw a line in the sand." We must decide who we are, what we are capable of and look to the heavens to chart our course.
Just one little bit of far-right martial/seditious rhetoric, among so much the past two years.
"The whole tea party" did not shoot and kill Democrats outside the North Tucson Safeway.
It only took one of them.
