Maddow and DeGette on Komen/Planned Parenthood debacle

Here is the link to a wonderful, if completely head-scratching expose of a profoundly anti-woman's health push by the Republican party.

The outrage of the moment is occasioned, I think, not by the completely predictable and normal Congressional vendettas, but the sense of betrayal many women felt when a group of women turned against their own gender. But you can bet the men in Congress noticed. I have to hope that eventually the profound overreaching of the Right will catch up with them.
