Via Ana, who is not able to post it herself at the moment, comes this reaction to Rush from John McCain:
Any American who risks his or her life to defend us has earned the respect and gratitude of every American citizen, irrespective of their views on this
war. If Mr. Limbaugh made the remark he is reported to have made, it reflects
very poorly on him and not the objects of his offensive comment. I expect
most Americans, whatever their political views, will have the same reaction.
He would be well advised to retract it and apologize.
UPDATE: Rush is starting to look pretty lonely on this. Mitt Romney spokesman Kevin Madden tells the Huffington Post:
“Governor Romney would disagree with the negative characterization of those men and women who serve with honor and distinction in the United States Military. There may be disagreements with individual opinions, but no one would ever dispute the fact that those members of the military who disagree with the war have earned the right to express that opinion.”
