The Susan G. Komen Foundation, and its senior vice president of public policy, Karen Handel, who is "staunchly and unequivocally pro-life," have been getting beat up pretty bad for the blatantly political decision to stop funding cancer screen and prevention at Planned Parenthood.

It appears that yesterday, Handel signed on to the "cry me a freaking river" sentiment on Twitter that anti-choicers are gleefully expressing because nothing makes them happier than women dying of cancer if it means sticking it to the nation's biggest provider of health care to women.

However, since that sentiment didn't really lend credence to the Komen Foundation talking point that its decision wasn't political, the tweet was deleted.

But, as sharp-eyed Lisa McIntire tweeted, "This is why we take screen shots."

Karen Handel is apparently a typical Republican and doesn't understand how the internet works. Nice try, Ms. Handel, but too late. The tweet may be gone, but your true feelings about this horrible decision are already out there and have been spread far and wide.

Send an email to the Susan G. Komen foundation to share your true feelings about this horrible decision.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
