An unscripted Mitt Romney is a scary thing. He says stuff like he likes firing people and doesn't care about the poor. But even a scripted Mitt can be painful. In Iowa, Romney kept awkwardly reciting the words to America the Beautiful to crowds, almost acitng as if he wrote it himself. Then, in Florida, he began singing it. Please, somebody make him stop.

The same day this cartoon ran in the paper, Susan G. Komen, caving to mounting criticism, apologized for pulling funding from Planned Parenthood. I like to think she saw the cartoon and that's why she reversed course :-), but there were certainly a lot of other angry people expressing themselves.
It was clear to everyone that she had given in to the GOP conservative right who are bent on dismantling Planned Parenthood. The problem is, 90% of the services they provide to poor women are not abortion related, like breast cancer screenings.
