Am running this because this woman is dynamite. Am running it because I so admire her dignity and guts and warmth and honesty. Am running it because after seeing this video, I am in love with her.
It’s a superb response to the whole miserable outing of the Susan G. Komen Foundation (the pink ribbons and pink teddy bears breast-cancer-cure people) as patently anti-women. Komen’s directors revealed the astonishing scope of their hypocrisy (and fraud) when they decided to defund Planned Parenthood’s breast-cancer screening — a decision made for clearly right-wing religious-political reasons. Under the pressure of public disgust, they have since said they’ve reversed their decision — but for this year only.)
“Do you see religion on my chest?” Linda asks in this video. “Do you see politics on my chest?” And she concludes with the perfect last line.
