re: #9 Oh no…Sand People!

But I don’t understand the ‘disgraced’ (from the article) when it comes to Sen. McCarthy? It’s tossed around, but no matter how many times is stated, the history doesn’t back up the accusations.

What? Of course it does. After his final censure, his colleagues avoided him, his speeches were given in near empty chambers or ignored, and his public speaking dwindled to almost nothing.

Hell, the guy pretty much drank himself to death in the end. That’s not something that a person who’s on top of the world does. Someone who’s been disgraced and shamed drowns themselves in booze like that.
