Joe McCarthy's Ghost!!!

A recent piece I did on comparing Donald Trump to Richard Nixon, no, not this time, but to Joseph McCarthy.  Today as the Republicans try to disown their own candidate, it's not a bad time to revisit one of those in the past the Republican Party wouldn't disown.  And the title comes from the wonderful band, the Minutemen!  Enjoy: Joe McCarthy's Ghost!

I'd like to call your attention to...

Not just this piece that I wrote for (the politics of stupid) but to the publication itself. is a site that I'd encourage people to visit.  It offers a broader and more historical perspective on issues -- something that warms my heart about on-line writing in a day and age of short-sighted, 24/7 news.  Enjoy.
