re: #16 Oh no…Sand People!

I am not going to let people’s opinions of the guy change what is born out by history.

So basically, you’re going to ignore the real history of McCarthy in favor of what you’d like to believe? Fair enough.

Don’t expect a whole lot of sympathy for that, though. The guy was an asshole, a fear-monger, and ruined the lives of many good people. He was a contemptible little troll of a man.

Also? The Cold War ended back when the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet Union collapsed. It’s been over 20 years now. Red baiting and looking for a mythical commie threat in this day and age is as laughable as it is outdated.
