Or should we just shut up about McCarthy ?

Further to the post below, Xoff thinks McCarthyism is a Wisconsin tradition.

Let's see. McCarthy was a junior Senator from Wisconsin with national ambition. He accused people who he disagrees with of being criminals. He wished to try these people in the press or on the floor of Congress, rather than in a court of law. He made accusations he couldn't back up.

Maybe it is.
