If the Shoe Fits…

On Senator Ted Cruz filibustering Hagel’s nomination to be defense secretary, The New York Slimes offered this:

Without naming names, Senator Barbara Boxer, Democrat of California, offered a biting label for the Texan’s accusatory crusade: McCarthyism.

“It was really reminiscent of a different time and place, when you said, ‘I have here in my pocket a speech you made on such and such a date,’ and, of course, nothing was in the pocket,” she said, a reference to Senator Joseph R. McCarthy’s pursuit of Communists in the 1950s. “It was reminiscent of some bad times.”

Ah yes, good times, good times, back when the right was right and communists were infiltrating society. Back when Comity was comedy. Yeah, those were some bad times for communists.

“He basically came out and made the accusation about money from North Korea or money from our enemies, and he just laid out there all of this accusatory verbiage without a shred of evidence,” said Senator Claire McCaskill, Democrat of Missouri. “In this country we had a terrible experience with innuendo and inference when Joe McCarthy hung out in the United States Senate, and I just think we have to be more careful.”

Senator McCaskill basically says Senator Cruz basically said something that people should be offended by. The only problem is Senator McCarthy was right.

Basically.

That’s some comity gold, right there.
