I've just read about the hearings. I'm clearly missing the broader context, but this moment alone, as well as Symington's remark to McCarthy, feels like a high point of modern American politics if there has ever been any. It's Welch saying "You stooped low enough, and I shall abstain from helping you dig further down".

Man, what a piece of history.
