Comments: "McCarthyism" Jumps the Shark

from a man who is too young to remember Watergate (or Iran-Contra, though I was alive when it happened)...

I seem to remember the Senator Joseph McCarthy had a committee on UnAmerican Activities, and used all of his power as a Senator to hunt down people who were bent on helping the Communist Party USA and its allies inside our borders.

Also, I've seen many claims that McCarthy was not hunting wild geese, and that proof has later surfaced that he was right.

So where is the committee that is trying to put Ms. Pelosi's name on a blacklist, and imprison her for treason?
