Thread Name: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
Subject: RE: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
The Web is raging right now with curious references to failed vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin after a speech she gave last September criticizing Giffords, a Democrat, for supporting Obamacare. Months earlier on her website, Palin named Giffords as one of 20 Dems in her "target practice" crosshairs.

According to NPR, six members of Giffords' staff were killed in today's attack. According to the Associated Press, 12 people were shot.

Giffords and astronaut husband Mark Kelly, who served in Desert Storm, have two children.
