-By Warner Todd Huston

BREAKING: An obviously insane moron rushed up to a grocery store where Democrat Representative Gabrielle Giffords (Arizona, 8th District) was appearing and began shooting a pistol indiscriminately.

Several of Gifford’s staffers were hurt and the Congresswoman herself was rushed to University Medical Center in Tucson. Her condition is not yet known. One report has her having been hit in the head.

The assailant was tackled by bystanders and held for police.

UPDATE 01

Reuters is reporting that Rep. Giffords has died of her wounds.

UPDATE 2

…but KOLD TV News is saying the representative is still surgery.

UPDATE 3

Fox News just reported that Federal Judge John Roll was also shot in the attack. News is also out that representative Gifford is responding to questions from medical staff and is not as grievously injured as feared.
