commented on 22 Senators Call on Komen to Restore Funding to Planned Parenthood
I suppose if they really cared they'd get a list of the other 1,999 organizations that Komen funds and open an investigation into them as well. And yes, I realize that would effectively stop whatever cancer-finding funding Komen is putting out there, but it'd also put pressure on Komen to change its policy. And anyway, I believe I read that the Komen dollars to Planned Parenthood funded roughly 170,000 screenings out of the 4 MILLION that Planned Parenthood annually conducts. Putting aside that that is 170,000 mothers, daughters, aunts, sisters, it really isn't that significant. Or at least, not significant enough that PP couldn't raise the money to do that by itself just off this news. I'm also talking to myself.

@23, the big difference is that she is not brain-dead. Incompetent? Sure. But she's not dumb; just ineffectual.

@7,8, he didn't have to answer the question. He got his soundbite about the Big O in there and that's all he needed to do. It's lame, but it'll placate the mouth-breathers that Fnarf alludes to above.
