Michael Brendan Dougherty at Business Insider points out that the hysterical outrage expressed by the left over the decision of the Susan G. Komen Foundation to drop grants for Planned Parenthood is largely unfounded.

Each organization is doing just fine financially, writes Dougherty:

In an odd way, the insanely disproportionate news-blitz over this funding decision has been to the immediate benefit of both groups. The Komen Foundation saw donations jump over 100 percent and raised about $1 million in the 24 hours after it announced cutting this grant to Planned Parenthood. And Planned Parenthood raised about $500,000 in as much time and will easily replaced the dollars lost from Komen.
