@ShuttleCDRKelly Is A Vile Jerk
That would be Mark Kelly, husband of Gabrielle Giffords.
This morning, Gabby Giffords made an unannounced appearance at the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing on gun violence. Assisted by her husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly, the former U.S. representative slowly and deliberately relayed her message: that “too many children are dying,” that “we must do something” to fight gun violence, that “Americans are counting” on Congress to “be courageous.”
Over at Protein Wisdom, frequent commentator leigh expressed my feelings:
Mark Kelly should feel like a jerk for whoring out his wife as an anti-gun poster child. It’s the same way I feel about Sarah Brady shoving Jim Brady’s wheelchair into the middle of every anti-gun legislation that comes down the pipe. And, Carolyn McWhatshername, the congresscritter from Long Island whose husband got gunned down by Colin Ferguson thus launching her career.
All three have no shame.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Kelly did run for some elective office or end up heading an anti-firearm ‘non-profit’ where he pulled down over a million per year. Vile. Let the woman be.
