Editor:

I cannot believe that Elaine Kolodziej was defending Rush Limbaugh’s recent behavior (WCN 3-7-12).

The media and everyone else should go after Rush for this one. He crossed the line of human decency by slandering this young woman’s character, calling her a slut and prostitute. What was her crime? I believe it was testifying in favor of contraception being included in health insurance.

Elaine rationalizes Limbaugh’s behavior because someone else had said mean things about people she likes. Don’t we teach our children that just because someone else does something wrong that it does not make it acceptable?

I do not listen to Rush Limbaugh or any other commentator. I find their inflammatory rhetoric to be counterproductive. I also find the extremists on the left as well as the right equally contemptible.

Who will take the moral high ground in the sewer of politics?

Shame on you, Rush Limbaugh, for your behavior, and shame on you, Elaine, for defending him.

RICK RUTLAND

So, an Elenor Roosevelt, Laura Bush, of a Lady Bird Johnson wouldn't look good about right now? I'll pray for a white First lady.

"Change the dial. Get a grip. " Alvin, that's the most intelligent thing you've said.

Oh Trace, if you can find that Rush said anything as bad as what Mahr said I'm sure you would have had it out here before. Do you still have your KKK white sheet? Those guys were Demos too, right. They didn't like minorities ... More ›
