I am distressed and concerned with the lack of respect so many display who claim allegiance to the Republican Party.
Rush Limbaugh and those of you who support him and his out-of-touch ideas and comments need to think about what your reaction would be to your own children and grandchildren being called names in the national media, as was Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke. Would you stand for it? No, I don't think you would. I am sure you would speak out against anyone maligning one of your family members.
I suggest that all Republicans take notice of the Twitter comments posted by your own California Republican Party spokeswoman, Jennifer Kerns. A woman in her position should be supporting other women, regarding this issue: nelsnewday.wordpress.com/tag/jennifer-kerns.
I also suggest that you read the Twitter comments made by TV personality Patricia Heaton, and boycott any TV show, including the advertising sponsors, on which she is a cast member. Ms. Heaton insulted Sandra Fluke further with insensitive and inappropriate remarks, and those statements can be found by using Google to search Ms. Heaton's name.
We should all be taking a stand against this kind of intolerant rhetoric, because it is insulting to women in all families.
Finally, I am appalled that not one of your "presidential" candidates took strong issue with Mr. Limbaugh's remarks.
