    They are a fundraising firm. They raise money, and turn around and give it to actual operating foundations focused on breast cancer. The problem is that most of the funds that come in never make it out, since Komen costs a ton to run. At one point their top 20 execs all made over $200K. Plus, they are as aggressive in pushing out other charities as any corporation is against its competition.  Instead of giving to Komen, people can simply give to one of many fine breast cancer charities that actually do work, and their funds will go much further.

      This nasty anti-Komen campaign seems like a loser.

      If I were a GOP operative, I think I would be crafting something along these lines:

      What kind of people support Obama?
      The kind who hate free-thinking women.
      The kind who'd rather watch you die than deviate from the party line.
