This is in response to the Opinion page, July 21, “The Big Picture: Why are Republicans so Cold-Hearted?” by Mike Kirchubel.
I believe the overriding reason the Daily Republic continues to carry Mr. Kirchubel’s Monday morning commentaries is the Daily Republic’s attempt to balance the paper’s liberal and conservative readership, hoping for a larger circulation; perhaps by balancing viewpoints.
The Daily Republic adds in part at the conclusion of his commentaries that Mike Kirchubel grew up in Fairfield.
What are we “cold-hearted Republicans” left to make of this? That his Fairfield roots excuse his poor taste or that being “cold-hearted Republicans” makes him more of a “warm-hearted” journalist, as a Democratic liberal? It’s laughable.
What’s “cold-hearted” is abortion; a tenet of his party.
