The Stalin Monologues, Episode 5: TaterHead the Senator
McCarthyism was a stain upon the history of the United States, a crime for which McCarthy suffered nothing more than censure from Congress. His witchhunts destroyed people's lives, all in the pursuit of a phantom enemy, an enemy that might have been better off for the paranoia he engendered in the American people. Perhaps had he tried to understand the enemy as a human being rather than condemning an entire political system because of the twisted interpretation of that political system by a meglomaniac, the Cold War would not have lasted nearly as long. Enjoy!
