Breaking: Gabby Giffords resigning from Congress.
Congresswoman Giffords, of course, was gravely wounded in 2011 in a murderous attack by a madman that left six dead and thirteen injured.

Below is a video put together by our own Ben Howe, showing what a difference that six months makes in the life of Chuck Schumer, senior Senator from New York and thoroughgoing lying hypocrite.

Second, and more importantly, because one of his opponents put together a hit site. Link’s via Instapundit – I’m not going to give said site traffic – and it’s quite the little collection of innuendos and assertions-stated-as-fact, in its way. | Read More »
