    Guess I will need to pick a more appropriate time to mock his concept of literacy.

    Is Arizona an "open gun carrying" state or whatever the hell it's called? If so they need to change their gun laws so crazy people wont bring guns to political rallies.

    Dr. Manny: Examining Gabrielle Giffords' Gunshot Wound
    By Jessica Ryen Doyle

    Published January 08, 2011

    Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is in intensive care following surgery at the University of Arizona Hospital for a gunshot wound to the head at close range.

    Dr. Manny Alvarez, senior managing health editor of FoxNews.com, said surviving a gunshot wound to the head is rare, but not unheard of – and Giffords is in for a long fight.

    Alvarez said the survival rate of a gunshot wound to the head is about five percent – and three percent of those that do survive will always have a neurological deficiency, such as memory loss or a lack or motor skills.

    “It all depends on where the bullet goes,” he said. “Your best chance of survival is from front to back, if you get shot side to side, the survival rate is less, and it all depends on the damage the brain has.”

    Giffords’ friend, State Senator Linda Lopez, confirmed the bullet entered Giffords’ head at her temple and exited through her forehead. Lopez said Giffords was responding to commands before surgery, but is not sure what Giffords' long term prognosis is.

    “If the bullet goes through both hemispheres and leans toward the base of skull that is where most of the vascular tissues are, and that can be a deadly result,” Alvarez said. “If the bullet goes through both hemispheres, but there is a clean exit wound, the patient can be lucky and there might not be any significant damage. Of course, the best prognosis is when the bullet affects only one hemisphere. Nonetheless, any gunshot wound to the head is going to leave residual side effects.”

    Alvarez said the next three to four days is considered the most critical for Giffords, and recovery could take years to achieve.

    “Doctors carefully opened the skull and looked for any type of bleeding and then cauterized blood vessels,” Alvarez said. “Patients are kept under anesthesia for three to four days to monitor brain swelling, which is one of the complications of this surgery."

    Alvarez pointed to the story of a British soldier who survived a gunshot wound to the brain, but learned to walk and talk again, and in October 2010 was quoted in the The Sun as saying, “They say I’m a walking miracle.”

    Liam Brentley was shot near the ear, and the bullet came out the other side of his head, pinging a wall, according to the U.K. newspaper.

    Brentley is deaf in one ear and has some memory loss.

    Please tell me that that facebook asshole will be visited and jailed! My God I can't believe the hatred that has sprung up. Sarah Pailin and her friends worked these assholes up and this was bound to happen. And sadly it will happen again.

    I just got home from shopping with my boys and saw this when I got online. This is so heart-breaking and horrible; it's hard to comprehend. Yahoo news and CNN are saying at least five are dead now.

    I've heard of people surviving through and through gushot wounds to the head with no lasting effects. Its miraculous. I pray for a complete recovery. Her hubby must be in complete turmoil.

    The BBC was reporting that she DIED! Glad she survived but that poor kid and my heart goes out to the ones who died or was injured.

    I really really hope this starts a huge backlash against Palin and her minions - but I think this was a matter of time for something like this to happen. They were using crazy language and images to incite hatred - people were going to get hurt sooner than later.

    This nut job may not have been a SP supporter but there are a supporters of hers who think this was fantastic. You just know that this guy will become a hero to them and someone is going to try to do the same. She needs to make a speech and tell them to calm down and that this is wrong!!


    I'm not sure this has been posted but it's chilling.
