I trust that most of you remember the huge cry of public outrage, when the Komen Foundation joined forces with the Republican Party in an attempt to defund Planned Parenthood.  At the center of that controversy was Karen Handel, a thoroughly ugly woman.  I’m not being sexist.  Some people are just so ugly on the inside that no amount of glamor can hide it.  Like the poltergeist of Hollywood fame, she’s back.

This is just delightful. I can’t imagine a better choice to carry the banner for the new Republican party, the one that minorities and women will flock to embrace:

Karen Handel, the former Susan G. Komen for the Cure executive who drove the charity’s attempt to defund Planned Parenthood, is considering running for U.S. Senate in Georgia, according to one of her former aides.

“She’s considering it,” Rob Simms, a Republican campaign consultant who worked on Handel’s unsuccessful run for governor in 2010, told the Weekly Standard.

If she ran, she would be going up against Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), whom Roll Call reported may be vulnerable to a primary challenge from the right, given his "willingness to reach across the aisle and his comfort with the idea of compromise."

Imagine. She’s to the right of Saxby Chambliss, that pile of dirt!… [emphasis original]

Just in case you forgot, C&L also provided a video of this female misogynist to remind us of what a liar she is.

If you live in Georgia, please do all you can to make sure this woman is not elected.

  1. Lord, help the state of Georgia!

  2. Ditto , what Carrie just said!

  3. Unfortunately she'd fit in right fine in Georgia. It so amazes me how she can be an executive for women's health for one program while at the same time wanting another woman's health program to be de-funded. Talk about speaking out of both sides of your mouth.

  4. Amazing what some people will do and say to get ahead politically for all the wrong reasons.
     
    Her resignation from Susan G. Komen Foundation:

    Before joining Komen in April 2011, Handel ran for governor of Georgia on an aggressively anti-abortion platform. She wrote in her campaign blog that she "do[es] not support the mission of Planned Parenthood." Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed Handel because of her opposition to reproductive choice.
    In July, the Republican Study Committee tapped Handel to co-chair its "Right Women, Right Now" initiative, which aimed to support GOP women running for office.
     
    Maybe when Sarah runs in 2016 she will tap this female mysoginist  to run with her instead of Batshit Bachmann.
    Oh what fun it is to run a nugatory campaign!

    I feel badly for the citizens of Gerogia…

  6. Karen Handel is truly an Ugly woman- hateful women are ugly from the bone ;  Listening to her drivel , I conclude she hates women , and since she is a woman ,  hates herself–

  7. I'm actually MORE than OK with Handel primarying Saxby "Swiftboat-Max-Cleland" Chambliss.  The more right-wing lunatics the republicans run the better for us … probably even in Georgia.
     
    Just like Missouri's Todd Akin and Indiana's Dick Mourdock's off-the-wall right-wing screeds on rape led to the re-election of Sen. Claire McCaskill and election of Joe Donnelly, I think republican extremists eating their own only helps our chances.  (Although it is Georgia)
     
    I just hope that Max Cleland – who sacrificed an arm and two legs in service to our country – will run again.  The vile, evil, reprehensible Swiftoating of Max by Chambliss in 2002 was inexcusable.

  8. She made me decide not to ever donate to the Susan B. Komen foundation again.  The attack on Planned Parent hood was blatant, and she can say it was not politically motivated all she wants, it WAS.

  9. Handel spoke of Planned Parenthood as having made the Susan G Komen issue a political issue.  If anyone made it a political issue, it was Romney and other Republican/Teabagger potential presidential candidates, who vowed to defund Planned Parenthood, and Handel who opened up her 'pie hole' to release that toxic venom that she spewed.

    In her recently released book, Handel lashed out at Planned Parenthood for her downfall, calling members of the organization "a bunch of schoolyard thugs."

    "a bunch of schoolyard thugs." is how I would characterise Handel and her GOP dogs, not Planned Parenthood.  With 3% of their work being abortion related, none of which is funded with public funds (by law), and 97% being other services, PP stood up.  But as I recall, the lashback at Handel and SGK was a grassroots effort and had nothing to do with PP.  PP does so much good with cancer screenings that many women would not otherwise get; treatment of STDs that affect both men and women; family planning and contraception. 
     
    If Handel wants to look at the cause of her downfall, she should look no further than a mirror.  Just like the Republican/Teabaggers during the election did, Handel engineered her own downfall.
     
    I have two things to say to Handel:
     
    1)  May your political career be over before it has started, and save the people of Georgia, or anywhere else for that matter, from having to listen to your misogynist rant; 
     
    2)  "Karen Handel, may a camel walk up your nose backwards and fart the big one!"
