Bourdain: Nice People in Gun-Country

Now and again a personage on the left writes something eminently sensible about the culture conflict in the U.S. Today's example is from TV foodie Anthony Bourdain, as quoted in Newsweek:
I've spent a lot of time in gun-country, god-fearing America. There are a hell of a lot of nice people out there, who are doing what everyone else in this world is trying to do: the best they can to get by, and take care of themselves and the people they love.... The self-congratulatory tone of the privileged left - just repeating and repeating and repeating the outrages of the opposition - this does not win hearts and minds.
Hear, hear.... Not being socially progressive globalists doesn't make gun-country patriots pond slime. Mrs. Clinton also discovered calling them names doesn't win their votes.
