First the ghost of the late red baiting exhibitionist himself Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-Wisconsin) inhabits the body of a psychologically disturbed Fox News host. Now apparently he has found his way back into our nation’s capitol in the form of Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-AL), while dinning with some local government officials in his district.
“Some of the men and women I work with in Congress are socialists.”
Asked to clarify his comments after the breakfast speech at the Trussville Civic Center, Bachus said 17 members of the U.S. House are socialists.
McCarthy alleged the same about the State Department in the 1950s (although his numbers often fluctuated). Other then that its the same old McCarthy tactic as largely anachronistic as it might be. Wonder when someone is going to tell him the Cold War is over.
