I'm a 62-year-old straight woman in rural Pennsylvania whose (very straight) husband happened to walk in when I was listening to you -- and I'll just repeat his response:

Do not -- repeat, DO NOT -- in any way apologise for what you said.  You guys have been betrayed for years by yet another group of placeholders interested only in themselves.  Hey, it's the way 99.99% of all Democrats work.  Unfortunately.  For all of us.

p.s.  Your delivery was fine also -- the depths of your outrage seemed well under control.  So I wouldn't worry about that, either.
