Of course it’s news, Bret.

You’re not a Giffords fan, to put it mildly, so you might interpret it as an unwarranted onslaught of publicity. Her supporters might say Gabby and Mark are an inspiration for the country.

Either way, this week’s media crush may not present much in the way of new information, but it’s news in and of itself.

@Dylan Smith

No, I’m not a Giffords fan, and yes, it is a most unwarranted onslaught of publicity. However, since you wrote this story you better than anyone else should know it’s not about Giffords, it’s about Kelly.

Kelly wasn’t elected to anything, nor was he shot. Before January 8, he didn’t even share a home with his wife, nor did they share a last name. Forgive me if I fail to see exactly how anyone can see Kelly as an inspiration.

I’m a married man. I love my wife. If something like that happened to her, there is no way in this world I could accept a single dime generated because of whatever hurt her, and still be able to sleep at night.

If this is indeed news as you insist it is Dylan, then that news is that Kelly is little more than an opportunistic scumbag who is trying to milk every dollar he can out of the hole in his wife’s head. It’s disgusting, it’s sickening, and it’s appalling.

Just checking, but you ARE taking the piss with your last paragraph here, right, Dylan? :-)

The world’s a curious enough place without having to Onion it up, Roberto. Go see the Esquire piece for yourself.

Printed the New York piece for train reading this morning. Will check out Esquire as well.
