A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words. By Geniusofdespair
This is Bobby Kennedy talking to Joe McCarthy. (That is not McCarthy holding the cigar.) Look at Bobby Kennedy's folded hands. Try folding your own hands and see how awkward this position is -- like that left pinkie at that angle. The hands reflect the escalating, difficult relationship.
Thank the news media for stopping McCarthy. Too bad they can't stop some of the idiots we have now.
McCarthy: "The issue between the Republicans and Democrats is clearly drawn. It has been deliberately drawn by those who have been in charge of twenty years of treason. Not the hard fact is...the hard fact is that those who wear the label...those who wear the label "Democrat" wear it with the stain of a historic betrayal."
Sounds like it could be said by a baker's dozen of our current Congressional members.
