    Maybe this pot head Loughner figured out Giffords used to be a Republican and didn't like her becoming a Democrat? Whatever this pot head's reason was for shooting Giffords and others it is not the result of our politicians or CNN, MSNBC, FOX, Sarah Palin, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, President Clinton, Joy Behar, Michael Moore, etc....discussing, fighting, insulting, mocking each other over politics. If we're going to blame anyone than we should blame the Loughners for not getting their son medical help.
