archie bunker

Sounds like they will fit right in here.
It was clear from the moment I arrived that his skepticism was warranted. For starters, Clinton was speaking from a stage wedged between the chrome-tastic Mayfair Diner and a place called "McNoodle's Irish Pub"--a forehead-slapping illustration of the fact that, far from North Philly, I had actually landed in Mayfair, a neighborhood in the Northeast that happens to be near-exclusively (you guessed it!) Irish. Then there was the crowd. Of the thousands thronging the 7300 block of Frankford St., I only spotted one who was, you know, black. It seems Hillary had come to Clinton Country after all. Her strength in Pennsylvania is largely predicted on the support of voters just like last night's, who were waving signs that read "Lettercarriers for Hillary" or American Federation of Teachers or AFSCME or "We've Got Your Back"--the brawny, blue-collar "white ethnics," whether of Irish, German, Polish or Italian descent, who form the Catholic backbone of the state, from Philly to Pittsburgh to Erie in the northwest. And Clinton's Pennsylvania stump speech (which she debuted at Temple last month) was perfectly calibrated for the crowd.
