Dusk-You-n-Me: Link (new window)


Crazy. I am a big fan of "Spending more time with family" jokes, and submitted this out of tradition. (I previously had the Herman Cain, John Ensign and Mitt Romney in 2008 headlines that relied on the same base joke). Great minds, I suppose.

Her resignation letter is hilarious, in a sad way: karenhandelkomen.com

Should have happened sooner, it looks like the screen door made contact.

"I openly acknowledge my role in the matter and continue to believe our decision was the best one for Komen's future and the women we serve."

Well then I'm glad you're no longer a part of the organization.
 
2012-02-07 11:05:12 AM  
Haha! Of course, now she can go be a Republican Hero somewhere else, and nobody is going to start donating back to the Komen group, but it's still good.

If any of this leads to getting that pink shiat off of the football field, then I'm for it.

This woman resigning actually increases the chances that it will stay.

What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men women you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he she wants it... well, he she gets it. I don't like it any more than you

Don't really have much of a say in the abortion debate when everyone just wants you to fark yourself.

WhoIsWillo: Her resignation letter is hilarious, in a sad way


Yeah, her resignation is embarrassing in its attempt to implicate the entire board of SGK in her clumsy attempt to turn the organization into a right wing weapon against Planned Parenthood. She should be ashamed of her self, but from my experience of watching her here in Georgia, i am pretty sure that she is incapable of experiencing shame in any form.
 
2012-02-07 11:30:18 AM  
Good riddance to bad rubbish.
 
2012-02-07 11:30:31 AM  
Her resignation wasn't political or about abortion, it was about excellence!
 
2012-02-07 11:31:20 AM  
Bye bye, fat-face.

uh-oh. she'll repackage herself for another arena, wait and see. the stinkiest shiat always floats to the top.

to spend more time making decisions for your family

She's going to work for Planned Parenthood?
 
2012-02-07 11:32:04 AM  
I just hope that she does not make a mint going around giving speeches about this whole trying time...

...but she's going to make a mint going around giving speeches about this trying time.

It would have just been better for them to say that they decided to put all their money into research for a cure instead of prevention.

I think people would have had less of an issue with that approach... after all their slogan indicates they are for a cure.

It is still kind of amusing that per the article, she was attacked in her losing campaign for not being anti-abortion enough, and yet the current narrative is that she's some kind of fanatic. I guess politics in that part of the country are rather different than what I'm used to.
 
2012-02-07 11:32:46 AM  
Clever job on the headline, subby.
 
2012-02-07 11:32:47 AM  
Good, good!

Now the Susan B Komen foundation can get back down to business! Literally!
 
2012-02-07 11:32:47 AM  
It looks like Miss Handel will be spending more time with her family, and even less time... with family planning.

Social media has created an unbelievable force multiplier for public shaming. Seriously! Last week this woman was a former politician from Georgia and a VP-level executive in the country's largest cancer charity. Then people learned her name, her game, and her track record and now she's occupied with updating her resume.

Imagine what social conservatives could accomplish with this technology if they weren't spending their time doctoring photos of the president to manufacture outrage!
 
2012-02-07 11:34:14 AM  
are you people happy? This unemployment line we are all so concerned about is one longer today.
 
2012-02-07 11:34:14 AM  
Good. Now fire everyone on the board who voted for the rule change.Then fark off.
 
2012-02-07 11:34:32 AM  

Actually important part of Karen Handel's resignation: proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Komen lied about her role. Lied. Use the word.

2012-02-07 11:34:35 AM  
Sounds like she couldn't Handel the pressure...
 
2012-02-07 11:35:08 AM  
She is going to get a job in some other Right Wing think-tank or over at Fox News, have no doubt about that.
 
2012-02-07 11:35:10 AM  
Amazing.

Keep this up, and the people will think they actually have power when they band together as a collective.

2012-02-07 11:35:10 AM  
I wonder who will play her in the movie.

Well, the board did sign off on her hiring in the first place.

basically she is saying "Yes, I am a retard if there were any doubt"

Fox News contract offer coming in 3...2....
 
2012-02-07 11:36:12 AM  
She is right about one thing--the move to change the rules to defund was signed off on by the board. It's too late. This will help, but the brand will never fully recover.
 
2012-02-07 11:36:20 AM  
So when does her FoxNews Talk show start?
 
2012-02-07 11:36:34 AM  
For the record, the policy to exclude PP from funding was in place before Handel ever got to SGK.

The more you know.

The problem being social conservative ideas would need to be popular with people able to operate a computer.

No wonder Sarah Palin endorsed her gubernatorial run.

She'd run previous campaigns singing a very different tune (see: Romney) and yes the social conservatives in Dixie are long on political memory and short on patience. This whole experience, however, may burnish her credibility with them.

Don't you know that PP hunts down pregnant women and aborts their loved unborn children in the dead of night while screaming "I am woman, hear me roar?"

If you read the entire thing it's the basic Republican "taking responsibility statement" where they say "I take full responsibility... but it was everyone else's fault!"
