Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, while remaining in critical condition, is thankfully making significant progress in beginning to heal from the brain injury caused by the heinous shooting attack on Saturday. It will still be a long road to recovery as any injury to the brain is is a serious and delicate situation. We must remember to pray for Rep. Giffords and the other survivors, those who did not survive, and their families.
While I don't want to dwell on it, it is necessary to respond further to those who are shamefully trying to exploit this tragedy to save their failing agenda. While there is a lot of good commentary out there, I'll simply link to a list of some of the incidents that some of the left and the Media have tried to falsely blame on conservatives and a compilation of the expressions of violence and hate from those who think that they are so much more "enlightened", "compassionate" and "forward thinking" than those of us who disagree with their agenda.
I'm not claiming that there has never been violence or vitriol from some on the right. There has. But the exploitation of this violent act has gone beyond trying to score political points to trying to stifle free speech. Thankfully, the American people are apparently not buying this nonsense.
