    Meanwhile on their “Listening tour” (insert today’s leading Republican candidate’s name here) stopped at the regional country club for a round of golf and some drinks.

    The ‘toon may very well be true but not for condescending reasons but compassionate concern. I’m sure laundry is “beneath” Mrs. Clinton, there are paid servants for that. However that does not mean that she can’t observe the toil of the average citizen and have sympathy for their plight. On the other hand, sympathy, on so many topics, does not seem to be a characteristic of the Republican brand.

    …Limbaugh and Hannity probably wonder the same thing.

    Yes, how do people stand living in Red states? Not actually getting by on minimum wage is one of the biggest issues in this campaign. Even more so in states that refused the Medicaid expansion and engage in voter suppression and gerrymanders in order to take away rights from workers, LGBTs, minorities, immigrants, women…

    Hillary grew up poor. One summer she worked in a cannery in Alaska, which is grueling work.

    You are kidding, right? She has degrees from Wellesley (one of the Seven Sister colleges, home of the elite of the elite) and Yale; and this is her hometown, Park Ridge, IL:The median cost of a house is $420,000;
    according to a 2007 estimate, the median income for a household in the city was $91,674, and the median income for a family was $110,842.9 Yes, I’ll BET she wonders how that “common woman” can stand it. Funny thing is, I was wondering EXACTLY the same thing about her and Bill.

    A laundromat is an excellent place to get the mood of the electorate. I remember when Faubus was riding high in the corporate media after his insurrection, a political analyst’s wife returned from one on vacation and announced Faubus would lose to Rockefeller. No one believed it, but he did.

    I think my mood would be “Could you stop pestering me? I’m trying to get my laundry done!”

    I am not disputing your facts but you do know what the "median” is right? Equally half are below and half are above. It is not average it is not even truly representative or indicative. A “median income” simply means that half of all residents earn below $91,674 and half earn above. Which means that if there are 100 people, 49 could earn $1000, one earn $91,673, 49 earn $91,675 and one earn $1 million. So only one person is truly rich, 49% are poor but the median income is still $91,674. As for going to a college that is the elite of the elite, there are many programs where high achieving students from poor families can attend very prestigious colleges for little or nothing. So where she went to school is not a barring indicator of her family being or not being poor. And the median cost of a house today is not indicative of the median, average or lower end cost of a house when Hillary was a child, teenager, college student.
    So while your current statistics may be correct, they are misinformation when used to indicate conditions then.

    Even in state and many city elections, candidates truly coming from, and supported only by “the common man”, are actually as common as hen’s teeth. At the national level, by the time any politician gets there, cash is the only viable social contract.
