    The smartest thing I have ever heard come out of Gabby Giffords was the word Dipbubblegums when she heard about this ship named after her.

    The no guns part is funny - I only wish the part where the US Navy named a ship after Sen Giffords was also a joke. That is not funny.

    I would love the irony of the MOST heavily armed ship to be named after her though ;)

    I'd rather see one named USS Gomer Pyle, or USS Popeye, before that dope gets an honor like that.

    The update to the story was classic

    UPDATE:Since this story first appeared, Giffords has reportedly been hijacked at gunpoint from its pier at Austal USA’s shipyard. The City of Mobile Police Department is asking anybody with information about the theft to contact the department’s Crime Stoppers line at 251-555-7000

    Wth is this country doing??????

    The USS Cole blared Kid Rocks "American bad bubblegum" as it headed off to safety and repair. That song and Jimmy's version of "The Star Spangled Banner" should be the battle cry for all future bubblegum kicking!
