I guess we're going to find out if the republicans saved that "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" banner.
 
2012-01-22 02:31:05 PM  
"Too soon"? Judging by the fact you got beat to the punch on that joke, I'd say you were too late, subby.

2012-01-22 02:40:00 PM  
Now let's hope the rest of Congress follows her lead. Vote them ALL out.
 
2012-01-22 02:40:00 PM  
They should give her more benefits and retirement pay for injury "in the line of duty".
 
2012-01-22 02:40:08 PM  
Well, that's one way to enforce term limits.

/another "Too soon"?

You forgot to add that it was all republicans that pulled the trigger.

Not to be cruel or heartless, but shouldn't she have done this a while back?

So are we drafting Jared Loughner for Congress now?

Subby, l bow to thee.
 
2012-01-22 02:42:49 PM  
She proved her point that a gunman wasn't going to get rid of her. Plus, I'm willing to bet that this was timed to the Dems' benefit.

Don't celebrate just yet, GOP.

So the average IQ for Members of Congress will drop about 20 points?

Good headline, subby ... see you in Hell. :)

I don't know what rules Arizona has for dealing with representatives who become incapable of carrying out their duties, but they should have been followed long before now, because she's right: there are other things that she needs to be doing. I commend her for correcting this longstanding mistake -though it's a shame that it came down to her resignation- and wish her the best in her recovery.
 
2012-01-22 02:44:15 PM  
Clicked the link to her farewell message.

Congress gets the best healthcare in the world. Of course you keep that job until you're back on your feet and looking at retirement.
 
2012-01-22 02:44:51 PM  
"I'm getting better. Every day my spirit is high. I will return and we will work together for Arizona and this great country. Thank you very much,"


Translation: I had to quit this job so I can spend more time working to outlaw all guns

I blame a single, mentally disturbed person, and by that, I mean "The Tea Party."
 
2012-01-22 02:46:06 PM  
It's rather sad. I thought she had a shot.

No kiddin, but the Republican map showing crosshairs wasn't remote a good idea. Even putting 20/20 hindsight aside it was NEVER a good idea.

You can't put together images like that and then squeal when some nutcase listens to you.

Take responsibility, you asshats.

I love how The Gipper was questioned about his mental fitness, as was W, but Uncle Teddy and Giffords got a pass about their obvious impairments.
 
2012-01-22 02:49:12 PM  
It's nice to see the comments section of Fox News is taking this news very seriously.

To be honest, I don't think her absence was all that detrimental. I'm sure that the her staffers and the representatives of the neighboring Congressional districts were picking up the slack on the constituent services, and it's not like the House was divided by R/D @ 218-217.

BTW, I'd say that for anyone who wasn't the chair/ranking member of a committee.

I bet it has something to do with the liberal media and how they're out to get you, right? I've never heard this shocking theory before, do go on.

All of them are. These are the idiots who have brought you free cell phones AND free paid minutes to the masses:

Cell phones are now a necessity, and should be paid for with your tax dollars.

Cheesus: Not to be cruel or heartless, but shouldn't she have done this a while back?


Yep. There should be a line of succession whereby the member of congress, if incapacitated, will have a backup in place so that the district does not go unrepresented for even a single vote.

Probably not the best comparison there buddy.

Or the Arizona GOP raffling off a Glock handgun , but then, when was the last time any GOPer had a good idea?

What about Biden and Maxine Waters? Those two are a special brand of retarded.
 
2012-01-22 02:51:02 PM  
I'd hate to be the GOP challenger for that seat.

Both sides have had that bad idea.

I'm surprised. She seemed like she was making great progress in her recovery.

With half a brain, you'd think the Republicans would have welcomed her as their leader.
