Gabrielle Giffords Shooter Expected To Plead Guilty tuesday

It's about time that justice was served for this.

Jared Loughner - the man responsible for the Tuscon, Arizona shooting that left six dead, and 13 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, injured - is expected to plead guilty to the charges against him this Tuesday.

Apparently, the 23-year-old has so far been deemed mentally incompetent to stand trial, but according psychiatric experts, he is now sane enough to comprehend the nature of his crimes and will enter the plea, most likely in bid to avoid the death penalty.

We sincerely hope that he is ready to face the consequences of his horrific, devastating and senseless actions.

Tucson Hero To Spend Birthday At State Of The Union With Michelle Obama

obamas to honor tucson hero

What a lovely gesture to make for this brave, young man!

Daniel Hernandez Jr., an intern for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, will sit next to Michelle Obama at tomorrow's State of the Union, which happens to be on his birthday.

The young man showed SUCH bravery when he rushed to Congresswoman Gifford's aid during the mass shooting in Tucson, Arizona two weeks ago.

Here's what he had to say about his opportunity to attend the State of the Union on his birthday:

"I'm both honored and excited to have the opportunity to travel to our nation's Capitol for a once in a lifetime event. Also the chance to bring my father along for his first trip to Washington, D.C. The State of the Union is a pivotal moment because it is our opportunity to find where we are and where we will be going as a nation in this upcoming year."

We hope it's a wonderful trip, Daniel! You deserve it!

…And Happy Birthday in advance!

Sarah Palin's Favorability Rating Goes DOWN

Filed under: Media MinutePolitikSarah Palin

sarah palin popularity is down

We're not surprised to hear this AT ALL.

Following the Arizona shooting, Sarah Palin's favorability rating has hit a new low at 38 percent.

Innerestingly enough, overall Sarah is not getting blamed for the shooting, but her popularity has taken a hit from her video response released last week where she accused "the media of manufacturing a 'blood libel' against her."

Looks like Palin supporters have immediately begun making the effort to repair as much damage as possible.

Here's what website Conservatives4Palin had to say about an online "moneybomb fundraiser" that they've started up:

“The purpose of the money bomb is to remind her of the strength of the support that she has in the face of the death threats and blood libel sent her direction in the aftermath of the Tucson tragedy."

We're thinking it's gonna be tough for Sarah to recover from her most recent popularity hit.

Given the way in which she's dealt with everything surrounding the Arizona shooting, our sympathies do NOT lie with her.

Thoughts???

Food Bank In Gabrielle Gifford’s District Receives $18,000 In Seven Hours

It’s amazing and humbling to see the deep empathy the country exudes after a tragedy.

After representative Gabrielle Gifford’s husband mentioned the name of the Community Food Bank in Tucson, Arizona in a statement, the charity saw a huge influx of donations — more than $18,000 in seven hours.

Bill Carnegie, the CEO of the food bank, says that donations mostly come from the local area but that the $18,000 came from all over the country.

Said Bill:

"They started at 8 a.m. this morning, and just keep pouring in from everywhere. Most donations are around $50, so you can imagine the number of phone calls and activity on our website that have been going on to generate $18,000."

Gifford has been a long-time supporter of the food bank and has helped raise money for it in the past.

Bill continued:

"She and her staffers came over here on December 18 and spent about two hours here thanking our staff and our volunteers for everything they were doing to help fight hunger. She's a really good friend, a longtime supporter, and we're just devastated."

This tragedy has been heartbreaking, but it's heartwarming to see this kind of outpour of support.

For those interested in donating to the Community Food Bank, here's their address and phone number:

3003 S. Country Club Rd.
Tucson, AZ 85713
(520) 622-0525
