Yes, I got a relatively decent connection.

"Poor Alan Colmes. He gets it from both sides..."

I forgot that the Kennedys and McCarthy were friends. WFB has a story about the guy that JFK was running against for the US Senate. An aide calls up McCarthy, and asks him to come to Boston to campaign, and McCarthy says "Sure. Just have [the blue blood candidate] give me a call, and we'll set something up".

WFB said that McCarthy knew JFK's opponent was too rigid to personally call, so he deftly side-stepped not supporting the pubbie candidate over JFK.
