No. It's maybe the lowest point of the 20th century. This was the rock bottom that started to restore respectability. We're about that low again, and we're just waiting for someone to be a hero. None seems forthcoming, but nothing ever seems possible until it is.

I see.

I'm only superficially aware of how bad the McCarthy era was. I just thought it was an authentic, brave stand against what is, by all accounts, acting in bad faith. I respect that.

The "Cohn" they keep referring to is Roy Cohn, the evil prick that became the Svengali who molded a young Donald Trump in his image.

Then Roy Cohn came down with AIDS and Trump pretended he didn't exist.

There's a semi-amazing continuity to Republican demagoguery in the United States.
