The suspect in the weekend massacre in Arizona scrawled "my assassination" and "I planned ahead" on an envelope found in his home, according to court documents released Sunday.

I do feel that he was trying to make his name with this one, take out a politician (for the unborn babies, no less) and get famous.
From my view, this envelope would seem to suggest that he wanted people to know that he wasn't just high, or crazy, or an opportunist, but a martyr to a cause... less of the martyr, of course, because he ain't dead yet.
If he was set up, they either didn't do a very good job (it sounds like a plant, my reasoning for assuming that it's not) or they did a very good job by making it seem so much like a set up that they threw people like me off the scent.
Another alternative, of course, is that he wanted people to think that he had been set up.

Interesting, why would he invoke his right against self-incrimination knowing full well that he had written that and that the police would most certainly find it?

Hm, interesting language, "my" assassination. Why would he not say, 'my plan to assassinate Gabrielle Giffords'? Saying "my" assassination almost implies that you are worried about someone assassinating you. But anyways, this does seem to clearly show that he did plan ahead, and since he was so strange about his language, he probably was referring to Gabrielle Giffords. Wish they would publish more than little snippets but the entirety of what he said.
