Gabby Giffords steps down one year after Jared Loughner shot her (video)

GABRIELLE Giffords, the Arizona US Congresswoman shot in the head by Jared Lee Loughner in Tuscon, is to step down from her elected post.

Gabby Giffords made the announcement in a  YouTube video posted yesterday afternoon. Says Giffords:

TV shock jock Keith Olberman is gung-ho for Palin and her crosshairs. But he forgets to note Obama’s Chicago-style politics and this page of the Democratic Leadership Committee website (dated 2004 during the Bush years), for using bullseye targets on Republican seats. (Via.)

GABRIELLE Giffords: Get a load of this senator taking a brave stannce:

A senior Republican senator, speaking anonymously in order to freely discuss the tragedy, told POLITICO that the Giffords shooting should be taken as a “cautionary tale” by Republicans.
