Re "Kevin McCarthy has a speaking problem" (Viewpoints, June 19): Dana Milbank says no dummy could have advanced as far as Kevin McCarthy has. I disagree. I remember another famous McCarthy who also was good-looking and well-liked, and likewise could only speak if someone put words into his mouth that went on to reach heights Kevin could only dream of.
However, the McCarthy I'm speaking of was an actual dummy named Charlie. What's Kevin's excuse?
