Astounding. Via Breitbart, Sen. Barbara Boxer of California on the Komen-Planned Parenthood kerfuffle (she even dusts off the old liberal battle cry of "McCarthyism" -- so vintage!):

"Well, could I say this? I was not born yesterday, as most of your viewers can tell, and the fact is, I’m reminded of the McCarthy era, where... a congressman stands up, a senator, 'I'm investigating this organization, and therefore people should stop funding them.' What's next, are they gonna' attack the American Lung Association, the YMCA, the YWCA? This is so sad, as Patty Murray has so eloquently stated, because it's about women's health."
