    Darkeforce, its not as though they just showed up. They’ve been pushing paranoia all along. Its not going to go away. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

    And there’s a strong push to re-write history with McCarthy as he stalwart patriot who was done in by the lying smearing communists that really were in the state dept… The victors write the history books, but people forget there can be different victors every generation or so.

    There’s at least one guy on this forum who insists that McCarthy wasn’t wrong, he just used the wrong methods. Another one says that recently declassified documents from Russia PROVE Tail Gunner Joe was right.
    Anyway, you can stick a fork in Newt, he’s done. After the mass resignation of his campaign staff, he’s got abut as much chance of securing the Repup presidential nomination as he does of winning the Powerball lottery without buying a ticket

    And women and atheists and liberals and peaceniks and science fiction fans and …..

    Find your place on the list because if you’re not with ‘em, you’re against them.

    “One (take your pick) is one (take your pick) too many!” (paraphrasing tailgunner joe)

    I heard on PBS some years ago, by somebody who was there outside the door and overheard, Ike meeting with joe mccarthy and Ike chewed joe up one side and down the other and drilled him a few new A-holes. Oh how I wish there was a recording of that!

    Simon, I’d like to agree with you but I don’t see Newt giving up yet. The birthers didn’t disappear. They are still voters but don’t have a cause to rally around. The first R who can offer a catchy new thing to be angry/frightened over can probably make a strong showing in the primary run. I susepct Newt is fishing for something shiny to dangle in front of folks.

    Interesting opportunity. Obama could play FDR. Except FDR isn’t allowed golf or hoops. Maybe, Obama could play
    Alger Hiss. No, Obama talks too much. The Soviets could never trust Obama. Maybe, Obama could play Joe Stalin. No, Obama couldn’t grow a decent mustache in a hundred years. This is it. Obama could play Eleanor Roosevelt. Obama is excellent at sticking his nose in other peoples business. Michelle could understudy.

    Thank you for the new conspiracy rumor. There is no big movement to recast McCarthy. I’ve been teaching history for over 16 years and in several different states. He’s still viewed as a scumbag.

    The problem with loyalty oaths is that when you have what appears to be a congenital liar like Newt, why should you believe he would keep an oath? How many marriage oaths has he broken?

    We have a couple here. Look at Sven (KGB operative) and LockerTowel.
