Gabrielle Giffords’ husband, Navy Commander (retired) Mark Kelly is as plum loco as the man who shot her. Jared Loughner, from Newsbusters :
PIERS MORGAN, HOST: Some interesting insights in the book into who, you know, walked to the plate and who didn’t, really, in terms of political colleagues and people that she had worked for and against. Sarah Palin doesn’t come out of this very well, I don’t think, because there was a woman who at the time had been putting these cross hair things on her website and stuff, including Gabby.
And in her haste to take responsibility didn’t even bother to pick the phone up, to write, do anything.
MARK KELLY: Yeah, we were never contacted by her.
MORGAN: I find that extraordinary.
KELLY: Yeah, I was surprised too. You know, certainly the targets that she put over Gabby’s and other people’s districts, in our opinion, was not the right thing to do. She is not the first person to do that. And it hasn’t always been Republicans that have done that.
Reax Dan Collins,Consrvatory :
You know, I don’t want to criticize the guy, because he and his wife have a tough row to hoe, but in an interview with that British guy, Kelly was asked whether they had heard from Sarah Palin. He said that he was surprised not to have been contacted, and that although Palin wasn’t responsible for what Loughner did, she had acted irresponsibly by circulating her map with targeted districts.
If, as Kelly admits, Sarah Palin is not responsible for his wife’s terrible affliction, then exactly for what is Palin to apologize to him and Giffords? Is she supposed to apologize for a climate of political polarization? Would an expression of condolence from Palin have eased their pain? Hasn’t she been abused in the most vicious terms by the left? Is she owed an apology? If so, by whom?
Kelly wants an apology from Mrs. Palin for Loughner shooting his wife. Sure! By Kelly’s own admission, Mrs. Palin had nothing to do with the shooting of Kelly’s wife, and everything to do lose with an apology. Had Mrs. Palin apologized for the Loughner’s shooting of Giffords (Mrs. Kelly) the lame stream media would have used Mrs. Palin’s apology as an admission of guilt. Put Kelly in the padded cell next to Loughner. They are two of a kind.
