Subject: RE: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
Yep, she still had wiggle room if she had taken the smart tack during her last announcement and regret the rhetoric and maps and say she is done with that kind of politics. Hell, that might have made her a viable candidate. Instead, it was "I'm the real victim in all this! How dare you blame poor, little me!" Even people who thought she was being picked on turned against her if the various political forums and blogs are any indication. It wasn't the brightest thing to say.

By saying it, she blew it. Totally blew it down the toilet. She is now a spent force with a political career living on borrowed time with an expiration date stamped 2012 when it will no longer pass the smell test for even the dullest of noses.

I expect as 2012 nears, many in the tea party will read the writing on the wall and want to jettison her and others in the party won't allow it and so the tea party will fracture--is already fracturing--and it will also become a spent force. While I do believe some tea partiers have noble enough aspirations, the party as a whole deserves it for ever making room for this stupid woman.
