12 others have been shot.
The gunman apparently shouted something at the Congresswoman before firing.
Prayers and best wishes with her, her family and others affected by this tragedy.
Even more sickening...liberal bastards like Marcos "Screw Them" Molitsas of the Daily Kooks is already blaming Sarah Palin (???) for this, and others are blaming the Tea Party. Can you assholes stop for one minute?
Ironically, I was just reading about her at a story referenced at This Ain't Hell yesterday. She was proposing a Congressional pay cut and funding by five percent. She also voted against Nancy Pelosi from what I understand, when it came to minority leader.
UPDATE: Sarah Palin had posted this at her Facebook page, most likely after hearing the erroneous reports Giffords had been killed.
My sincere condolences are offered to the family of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the other victims of today's tragic shooting in Arizona.While liberal scumbags are leaving nasty comments on her page due to a SarahPAC ad "targeting" Giffords district for a seat change in the November election. Um, excuse me, targeting Giffords for shooting was not what she implied, you hateful, idiotic libs.
On behalf of Todd and my family, we all pray for the victims and their families, and for peace and justice.
- Sarah Palin
UPDATE: 3:49 P.M. EDT; Federal Judge John Roll was one of those shot, and was killed.
Gateway Pundit gives a name: Jarod Laughner, referenced as the alleged shooter. No confirmation or details yet. I did find a YouTube channel belonging to a Jared Lee Loughner, not sure if it's the same person or a different spelling. He lists "Mein Kampf" and "The Communist Manifesto" as favorite books, no references to Tea Party or anything like that. Some weird film about currentcy.
