Pittsburgh’s Democratic Elite Screwed Up. Big Time.

“Being right is expensive,” a brilliant friend always says. May be my favorite expression after “Go Braves/Blue Devils.”

And here’s a great example: demanding that the President of United States not to come to Pittsburgh in the aftermath of Saturday’s horrific synagogue kiliings. Okay, I get it. But Jesus. That gesture will make those leaning right hate Dems and progressives even more.

Pittsburgh pols and the local leadership, which have been largely Democratic over the years, blew this one. Most folks of ANY political ilk in the Midwest, South and non-coastal West just DO NOT GET asking your president to stay away from your town when he has offered to come after a tragedy.

No bueno, Pittsburgh. You screwed up. And it just does not matter, my old Steeltown friends, that you are “right.” It’s not enough. Not ever.
