Last night, in Lawrence O'Donnell's Rewrite segment of "The Last Word," he reported that....

In a recent interview, the Dallas Morning News asked Cruz, “Is McCarthy someone you admire?” Cruz, who could not bring himself to say a flat No, instead answered, ”I’m not going to engage in back-and- forth and attacks.” O’Donnell slammed Cruz for dodging the question: “Ted Cruz is not willing to say whether Joe McCarthy is someone he admires, and he won’t say that because Ted Cruz wants to live in a world where he can use Joe McCarthy’s tactics and get away with it.”

O'Donnell was referencing Cruz's belligerent, slanderous opposition to Chuck Hagel, of course.

In the 50s, McCarthy made delusional accusations about Commies in our government. For his crusade, he was "rewarded" with his own noun in one dictionary. "McCarthyism: the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, especially of pro-Communist activity....unsupported by proof or based on slight, doubtful, or irrelevant evidence.” Sounds pretty Allen West-ish, doesn't it? You'll recall that West "heard" that 81 House Dems were Pinkos. When the NAACP in West's FL district digested his schizoid claim, they canceled him pronto as their keynote speaker for a fund-raiser.

It's understandable that Cruz stonewalled when asked if he admired McCarthy. Cruz once said that no less than 12(!) of his Harvard Law profs were Commies bent on government overthrow. O'Donnell's poker face half-failed as he called Cruz “the last person left in America–-and possibly the world-–who is still worried about Communists."

While Liberals rip into Americans by getting a record number of them on food stamps, disability, and getting millions of them to give up looking for work.

While Liberals continue to inflate asset values for their Wall Street friends, while they RIP into the purchasing power of middle class Americans.

But of course, to the insulated, out of touch PA Liberals....none of that matters.

O'Donnell and Cruz are more important.

Yum-yums.

Thank you for providing an example of McCarthyism, i.e., the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, especially of pro-Communist activity....unsupported by proof or based on slight, doubtful, or irrelevant evidence (from the original post).

Lib/Dims console themselves by deamonizing others. In their minds, there is always someone else dumber or more extreme than they are and if they can keep the focus on them, we won't notice how bat sh*t they are.

"Lib/Dims console themselves by deamonizing others."

How ironic. Hilarious, even. Another example of why you should review what you wrote before pressing enter. Maybe even twice.

Yours should be Post of the Day, no kidding!

McCarthy is someone I do admire.

No qualms at all saying that. He was right, after all. There were indeed Communists infiltrating the government at the behest of the Soviets for nefarious purposes. Treason was happening. Just because it was lefty heros committing the treason we're supposed to ignore it? Lol! Not bloody likely!

And Cruz is the only person still worried about Commies? Well, my motto is "better dead than red" so, hey, that makes two of us at least.

I have no love for Socialists nor their impatient ideological cousins the Communists. Nor do I have any use for useful idiots like O'Donnell, nor those who would even listen to that whack job.

The Left here has more in common with communists than it does with Republicans.

They won't dispute it.

It seems to me blacklisting Cruz won't exactly help. Let people like him, Bachmann, and Romney speak. Every nutty word they say hurts their side.

Those who scare them, they demonize (at least they try like hell to).
