  •  the thing is, Hovey doesn't represent SHES (5+ / 0-)

    she only represents part of Newtown. Republican Mitch Bollinsky represents most of Newtown (he won the open seat by 48 votes, a Dem held the seat from 2009 to 2013).

    So she told Giffords to "stay out of my towns" when she doesn't represent much of Newtown and Giffords doesn't appear to have been in her district. What a maroon.

    The Republican Party isn't a party of small government, it's a party of a government for the few. @bhindepmo

    •  Um, and Giffords was shot in the head... (4+ / 0-)

      ...by a deranged lunatic targeting strangers not unlike the Newtown school shooter.  And the Giffords shooting saw a little girl murdered.

      So Gabby has all the moral authority one could ask for to make this visit.

      And no moral authority is even necessary for a goodwill visit by someone from across the country who just surrendered elected office and isn't running for anything in the near future.

      It's sad that any of this should need to be said/typed explicitly.  It's all common sense.
