  1. Eh, it’s rude to be a guest in the house you plan to ruin. And the residents may greet you as you deserve. That would explain McCarthy’s choices of venues.
    Maybe people should remind the Obama team that one of the highest winners in “America’s Got Talent” this year got there with a song called “Coal Keeps the Lights On.” And it does, at two levels: the miners, who have no special claim to their jobs if the jobs are really obsolete but they’re not, and the customers, who need the electricity.
    Again I find myself asking — wailing, really — “How can ‘progressives’ get so much support from the working class and the poor when their policies do so much harm to the working class and the poor?”
