Karen Handel Is A Smart Woman
PG finished work on a post, and then saw that Karen Handel had resigned from her job at the Susan G. Komen foundation. He decided to leave comments at a few blogs, in an effort to drum up traffic to his site. Self promotion is part of blogging.
The first round was at Peach Pundit. PG left a quote from his post Sunday, Karen Handel Is An Idiot. This is an edited version of the comment thread.
chamblee54 February 7, 2012 at 12:00 pm Karen Handel gave an interview to Northside Woman , shortly after starting The Handel Strategy Group. There was a fun quote: “What I know is I will be prudent and smart about my career. I will make sure the things I have engaged in are not things that will present a difficulty for me later”.

Engineer February 7, 2012 at 2:40 pm She would make a good candidate for Senate in Georgia.
Andre February 7, 2012 at 2:08 pm Charlie, if you will indulge another request, could you close comments on this thread? I ask, not with the intent to shut down deliberative debate, but due to the fact that many folks on this site know both Karen Handel and her husband on a personal level. It may be difficult for the folks who know Karen Handel personally to remain civil while others excoriate her based on the caricature being portrayed in the media. So, Charlie, to maintain civility, just shut down this thread.
heroV February 7, 2012 at 4:58 pm just move along. literally nobody cares what Andre thinks.
Spacey G February 7, 2012 at 2:44 pm After long and careful thought on the matter, about :20 sec, I can’t help but agree with Andre. Tear down this blog post commenting now, Mr. Charlie.
Doug Deal February 7, 2012 at 3:29 pm Yeah, because that is precisely what she did. She’s just like Hitler. You need to get out in the world and realize that there is more to “women’s rights” than killing fetuses, and there is something troubling and perverse about how much joy it brings many on the left.
chamblee54 February 7, 2012 at 4:53 pm “killing fetuses, and there is something troubling and perverse about how much joy it brings many on the left.” Do you have a link for that? I don’t know anyone who is happy about abortion. It is a troubling issue. This type of toxic rhetoric makes it much worse. The grandstanding and pandering by the anti choice crowd is one reason why this issue cannot be resolved. Remember, Karen Handel was not anti abortion enough to please the Georgia Right to Life organization when she ran for Governor.
Doug Deal February 7, 2012 at 5:19 pm I stay out of the abortion debate because it is populated by an extremley vocal minority (albeit a sizeable one) of crazies on both sides. I will, however, criticize both sides on their extreme behavior from time to time. Regardless of what you believe, there is a certain amount of excess zeal in the actions of members of organizations like Planned Parenthood, NARAL and a number of other that cannot be explanined merely by “protecting a woman’s right to choose” as they are remarkably silent on the issue of a woman having the right to choose to say own a gun. Also, where is the outrage at the vicious attacks on women who chose to be conservative? Of course there is none, as it is about one thing, sticking it in the eye of the people you oppose and since abortion is the means to that end, it is championed fervently.
The next stop is JoemyG-d. Joe is having a busy day, with a court ruling on Proposition 8. Other stories got buried. PG left a comment, and link, about Karen Handel. It got one reply.
Fin Today, 2:30:34 PM Karen Handel Is An Idiot « Chamblee54 I hope it is not bad form to post another person’s blog here, but it is good post on Handel & Komen.
The last spot on the campaign trail was Red State.The initial comment there was:
A fun quote – chamblee54 Tuesday, February 7th at 12:27PM EST Karen Handel gave an interview to Northside Woman , shortly after starting The Handel Strategy Group. There was a fun quote: “What I know is I will be prudent and smart about my career. I will make sure the things I have engaged in are not things that will present a difficulty for me later”. There is more here about Karen Handel” .
The next time PG checked the stats, Red State had sent him 28 viewers. A little while later, he tried to log onto Red State. He got an error message… 601 Database redigestation error. This lasted throughout the day. Finally, using a different browser, PG went to the post. The link had been deactivated, and a tag line was added to his post… “The moderators are guessing that I would sooner bite off my own left arm than have you click on Live Action.“… There were some more comments.
“Karen Handel is an Idiot” Nice blog title – tankertodd Tuesday, February 7th at 1:47PM EST I completely discount you and everything you say simply because you titled your blog thusly. There’s no arguing with you, debating you, so why bother reading? You’re here to throw dirt. It’s idiotic behavior like this that screws up our country. You should be ashamed you’re one of the bad guys.
So Chamblee… – Repair Man Jack Tuesday, February 7th at 2:07PM EST Do you think posting a blog entitled Karen Handel is an Idiot will seriously further your’s. If so, you probably work for some serious scumbags.
Always interesting how the Left… – Moe Lane Tuesday, February 7th at 2:29PM EST …reserves its venom for female and minority conservatives. I’ve also taken the liberty of ending your attempts to draw traffic from our site. No, no thanks necessary. Or possible, come to think of it.
There’s even more relish to it – jakeofalltrades Tuesday, February 7th at 5:46PM EST when you realize that leftist maroons actually believe Moe has deprived them of the freedom of speech. It’s the cyber equivalent of tazing a hippie.
There are two more points to make before we post the rest of the pictures. (The pictures today are from The Library of Congress ) Chamblee54 is emphatically not pro abortion . It is one of the life issues, along with war, and capital punishment. Abortion is a ghastly procedure which is 100% fatal for the baby. Abortion is the taking of human life. We are almost always better when we let G-d make the decision to terminate a life. However, there are times when the woman feels that it is necessary to terminate the pregnancy. It is a tough decision, which the toxic rhetoric makes worse.
The second point to make is, yes, Karen Handel is an idiot. However good her motives, she screwed this job up royally. The Susan G. Komen foundation is being exposed to scrutiny that it would not have had to face, and is not looking good. It is doubtful that this is going to help the anti abortion movement. Will it keep any babies from being killed? Your guess is as good as mine.
UPDATE A 601 Database redigestation error is serious business. PG had to take the computer to the shop to get it to go away.
