Joseph McCarthy

 "Have you no sense of decency, sir?"

Who'da thought it (apart from Joe)? According to David Aaronovitch's Radio4 programme last Sunday there were reds under the bed after all - and J-Mac was right all along, blimey! The thorny plot of the McCarthyite witch-hunt era has been dug over with a result that some awkward truths have been uncovered - which annoyingly challenges the long accepted script. Fascinating stuff which is sure to resonate stronger Sate-side than here in the UK.
