Giffords for Senate?

New York magazine's Daily Intel blog has a snarky response to The New York Times story on how Democrats in Arizona are waiting to see whether Rep. Gabrielle Giffords -- you know, the congresswoman who's still recovering from being shot in the head -- will run for Senate.

This, according to the Times, has put the entire race on the Democratic side in limbo, since no Democrat wants to be the schmuck who tries — and, inevitably, fails miserably — to beat the hero congresswoman in a primary.. . .

. . . Enough games, Gabby! Regain your speech skills already and tell us whether you're running!

There are a number of reasons it would be good to see another woman in the Senate. But seriously, this is a little much.
