The distasteful commentary is exclusively coming from men which I find absurd. These individuals, almost to the commentator, clearly made no effort to read Ms. Fluke's congressional transcript. Their statements are almost entirely the regurgitation of Limbaugh's words with some of their own personal twists. Not only are these people dishonest as the transcript is readily available to read online. I even posted it with my opinion piece done this past Friday. I have posted the video version of her testimony below for those that are interested.

Rush has since apologized for his disrespectful and disgusting comments however Ms. Fluke said Limbaugh’s apology did nothing to change the corrosive tone of the debate over health care coverage and that Americans have to decide whether they want to support companies that continue to advertise on his program. AOL and Tax Resolution Services Co. on Monday became the eighth and ninth advertisers to leave Limbaugh’s three-hour show and at least one radio station dropped the program as he sought to stem the exodus of advertisers and fellow conservatives declined to offer him support.
Maybe this issue will bring about a much needed change in the right-wing's attitude toward those that don't buy in to the conservative hate rhetoric that we are hearing today.
My hope is that we can get back to creating jobs, improving our economy, getting our national debt under control and strengthening our foreign policy instead of dismantling women's health care.
