Failing upward

More tea, anyone?

Jean Devon of Mudflats:

She ran for governor of Georgia in 2010 and lost. Then she took one of the most beloved and successful non-profits on the planet, set it on fire, and shoved it out to sea like a viking funeral pyre, before resigning in disgrace. Then she wrote a book with the painfully prosaic title “Planned Bullyhood,” in which she called members of Planned Parenthood ”a bunch of schoolyard thugs.” So, what’s next for Karen Handel, disgraced and ostracized former head of the Susan G. Komen foundation?

She’s considering a run for the U.S. Senate, of course.

The good news is that Karen Handel, formerly of the pink ribbon (Susan G. Komen) brand would be running against Saxby Chambliss, whose one accomplishment in life consists of having slandered a wounded vet, Max Cleland, as soft on terror.
