I guess Karen Handel has never heard about the First Rule of Holes — when you’re in one, stop digging:

Karen Handel, the former senior vice president of public policy at Susan G. Komen for the Cure, accused Planned Parenthood of extortion during an appearance on the Christian Broadcasting Network. […]

“It’s clear that Planned Parenthood proactively went to [the Associated Press],” Handel said. “On top of that, what is even more disturbing is the gross mischaracterization of the decision, the solid evidence that this was a premeditated, orchestrated attack on a breast cancer organization.”

I love the smell of Righteous Indignation in the morning.  Smells like… BULLSHIT.

Seriously: a “premeditated, orchestrated attack” by Planned Parenthood?  A “shakedown”??

How is that even possible?  The shit didn’t hit the fan until after Komen made the announcement about cutting PP’s funding, and even then it was largely an outraged, spontaneous grassroots response on social media.   (It was in fact a glorious testimony to the mountain-moving power of the Internets in the hands of Angry Citizens.)

Sorry Karen, but everyone knows what happened here and no amount of demented, bizarro-world tap-dancing will change it.  The sad and sorry little factoid that defunding Planned Parenthood has been your “signature issue” since, like, forever (or at least long before you infested the Komen organization) is what they refer to in poker as “the tell“.

In that spirit, I’ll see your phony shakedown and raise you a live one:

    Karen: head/wall, head/wall, head/wall, . . . . rinse and repeat

    What is truly astonishingly stoooopid about this demented head case is that she would even go and whine on a “Christian” show…what does that tell you about their own agenda, and the fact that she is outright lying and projecting says it all..don’t all these Rekpug, jeebus-spewing hacks understand that it’s all over now?
    What a maroon…let’s just keep shoving that smelly ol’ foot deeper and deeper down yer throat, as we all decide, finally, to directly support Planned parenthood except through you..
    if Ms. Karen thinks that PP has some sort of conspiracy going on, let me just tell her that at our little drugstore on our little Island the clerk and I were just talking about how all the pink stuff they used to sell just sits there now-and this is in Canada!
    Don’t mess with our hard-won Women’s Rights, biotch, or you’ll find yourself in the unemployment centre, lining up with all the other peasants you pretend to support while rakin’ it in…buh-bye!

    Oh, don’t even get me started! Man, oh man! What year is this again? Why are we even having this discussion? So much for women’s rights…… (in some circles) ACK!

    What’s the definition of insanity again? Doing the same thing and expecting a different result? 😆

    I watched the interview 😯 and the most telling thing was that as soon as “abortion” was mentioned, it was like someone flipped an “ON” switch on a robot. Her eyes lit up & bulged out, she started blathering about how she “rejects!” the notion that abortion is a woman’s right, etc. (Always unmentioned is the fact that abortion is about 3% of PP’s business…)

    It’s always 1952 in some peoples’ minds

    So true. If it is not 1952 in their minds, they want it to be that year!

Wait. What?
