Wounded congresswoman speaks

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, recovering from a gunshot wound to the head January 8, is regaining part of her ability to speak, her spokesman said Wednesday. C.J. Karamargin would not divulge what Giffords has said, other than saying she asked for toast.

    Maybe now that she start talking she can tell everyone why she didn't agree with the Police to have security around her. If she thought she was loved by everyone, I guess she was wrong. Maybe few lives would have been saved if she acted responsibly.

    What are the characteristics of a right-wing troll? Someone who froths at the mouth with hatred? Sorry I am a newbie not up on the difference between right and left hate and what makes one a troll (right) and what makes one enlightened (left) Silly me hateful is just hateful!!

    @sandy: an internet troll is someone who says off topic incendiary remarks in order to get some of the fatties on their mom's computer upset. A left wing troll would bring up Sarah Palin in a story about baby laxative recalls. A right wing troll would insult blacks or muslims in a story about the weather. Both are interchangeable as the internet provides anonymity so a lefty can pose as a righty and vice versa. You'll notice in the real world nobody is throwing insults at each other as they are here as the cowards can remain anonymous on mommy's computer. You're best to ignore them and become an intelligent independent who can see the flaws in both parties. 🙂 you're welcome
