Giffords Gives Husband 20 Minute Neck and Back Rub

January 20, 2011

“Yesterday, when Mark came back from speaking at her aide’s memorial service, she reached up and untied his tie and undid the top button to his shirt,” according to the e-mail.

“Last night, she took his iPod and scrolled through all the pictures. Early this morning she began to read cards made for her by some 4th graders! Her unbandaged eye tracked the lines, she opened the cards and turned them over reading the back. Mark’s gotten pages of large print of Harry Potter’s 1st book for her to hold and read.”

The e-mail also says that Giffords gave her husband “a 20-minute neck and back rub.”


They are making a fucking meal out of this story. The woman is recovering, or trying to. And what is a detail the world needs to know? That while she is there, barely two weeks after getting a bullet blown in her brain she is exercising her “wifely” duties and caring for her husband. Give me a fucking break.

First, the left jumped on the bible-thumping angle of this story making it their own, now; they are jumping on the “she is such a good wife” story. STFU already.

The husband has some fucking gall sharing this detail. It is as if, “Oh poor me. My wife is getting all the attention because you know, she got a bullet shot in her head, but, I am really the one worthy of attention because she cannot think of anything but my well being and insisted on giving me a 20 minute back/neck rubs.” He should be ashamed of himself.

Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.

The left is the right.

    Honestly, if you were visiting someone you love in the hospital, would you let them rub your neck and back for 20 minutes? “Oh just let me move this IV, and this breathing tube, and this little button, and these wires, and this little bag, and this cord, okay, now sit here and let me rub your neck and back.”

    Fucking sick. Even nearly comatose women– and a Congresswoman at that– aren’t granted a reprieve from men’s selfishness.

    ugh is right – I heard this and felt the same way, “are you fucking kidding me?” He’s an ass and so is the press.
