Future Vice President Mike Pence gets lectured and hectored by the Broadway cast of the Hamilton musical during a recent performance. We review the controversies that have ensued and take a historical look at the real Alexander Hamilton -- whom we suggest had much in common with President-Elect Donald Trump per economic, trade and foreign policy principles. Meanwhile, we puzzle over the allegedly "pro-diversity" Hamilton producer's recent casting call for "non-white" actors only. Something off-key about that? Plus, we consider Senator Jeff Sessions' nomination for Attorney General, and ask why the New York Times is suddenly adding his middle name to its related reportage. To wit, "Beauregard." We also ask why commentator David Brooks has not yet kept his word and moved to Canada. Is there some delay? With Listener Calls and Music via Paul McCartney, Mike Ness, Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown.
