Introducing the Completely “Unhinged” Senator Joe McCarthy

  • … McCarthy came unhinged in a way unimaginable to most Americans. He ceased even pretending to care about the rights of the accused, whom he summarily declared guilty. He held one-man hearings, in violation of long-standing Senate tradition. When he was absent, his poorly trained, sophomoric staffers leapt in to badger witnesses on his behalf. — from the Preface to Demagogue: The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy, by Larry Tye

When self was reading the above, she had to keep reminding herself that this book was not about Trump (All McCarthy’s papers were donated to his alma mater, Marquette University, by McCarthy’s widow, “sixty years ago.” Anyone can read them.) What legacy of documents will Trump leave, self wonders, and to which university? Years from now, someone will access them and write a book, just like Tye is doing now.

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
