    Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who moved the nation with an improbable comeback after a gunman shot her in the head last year, formally resigned Wednesday in an emotional appearance in the U.S. House of Representatives.
    "I will recover and will return," the Arizona Democrat said in a letter read aloud by her friend and colleague, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who fought back tears.
    A standing ovation roared across the House chamber for Giffords. Teary-eyed legislators from both parties applauded Giffords as she submitted her letter of resignation to House Speaker John Boehner, who also fought back tears.

    It's a shame. For a democrat she was amazingly supportive of the 2nd amendment.

    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    I have to give credit where it's due. As much it pains me, I'm relieved that (so far) Giffords and the Obama crowd hasn't use her tragedy as a platform for gun control. I'm glad she not only survived, but made such a great recovery. Class act.

    I thought having half a brain was a requirement for Congress and not a handicap.
