McCarthyism Rears It's Ugly Head Again

Minnesota Republican Representative Michele Bachmann recently spoke with Chris Matthews on MSNBC Hardball to discuss Obama's associations with questionable individuals.  She ended up calling for the national media to produce an expose style investigation into liberal members of Congress to determine whether their activities are pro-America or anti-America. The spirit of this idea and the tone of Rep Bachmann smells very badly of McCarthyism.  It is also indicative of how desperate the McCain campaign has become.  Very sad.

We should remain vigilant to prevent such insidious ideas from becoming mainstream.
