What do you think about Senator Joseph McCarthy
Joseph McCarthy was perhaps the most despicable human being (and I hesitate to even classify him as a fellow human because it’s offensive to the rest of us) ever elected to public office in United States history. I can’t think of one redeeming quality belonging to McCarthy. The best service that he ever provided to our country was drinking himself to death while still relatively young.
It is sometimes suggested that those who ended up on the wrong side of history were relegated to history’s ash heap. Well, that’s far too dignified a place for a piece of garbage like Joseph McCarthy, who ruined many lives and tarnished the reputations of even more people with baseless allegations, petty gossip, hearsay, and outright falsehoods during the witch hunts that made him notorious, disgraced the Congress, and should have both embarrassed and infuriated all free Americans. Rather than the ash heap of history, McCarthy belongs in history’s sewer sludge. His reprehensible little partner, Roy Cohn, belongs right there with him, too. McCarthy and Cohn – authors of one of the most disgusting chapters of American history.
