    That new Senator had a secret list in hand (but it wasn’t Ted Cruz)

    That new Senator had a secret list in hand (but it wasn’t Ted Cruz)

    The mainstream media, egged on by Democrats, is trying to pin the “McCarthy” label on Ted Cruz.

    It doesn’t matter whether there is a basis, all that matters is that there’s a name connection made.

    It’s a meme started by the usual cabal of Democratic politicians and supportive media:

    Without naming names, Senator Barbara Boxer, Democrat of California, offered a biting label for the Texan’s accusatory crusade: McCarthyism.

    “It was really reminiscent of a different time and place, when you said, ‘I have here in my pocket a speech you made on such and such a date,’ and, of course, nothing was in the pocket,” she said, a reference to Senator Joseph R. McCarthy’s pursuit of Communists in the 1950s. “It was reminiscent of some bad times.”

    Actually, there was a new Senator who claimed to have the goods on witnesses without ever producing the evidence:  Elizabeth Warren, who outrageously suggested in her Senate banking debut that bank books were not worthy of investor confidence and that there were banks which should have been taken to trial. 

    Really, which banks have cooked books and which banks should have been taken to trial rather than settlement, with all the risk that would have created for the viability of the bank?  Warren never named names.

    I don’t think Warren was pulling a McCarthy, but I do think she was pulling a meaningless made for YouTube political ploy.  Yet Warren gets a media pass and becomes a progressive hero while Cruz is vilified and the conservative media is mostly silent.

    Juan Williams knows the media dance very well:


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.


    Warrenism: pretending to be something you are not and gaining approbation.

    […] Democrats and the major news media — but I repeat myself – have decided that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s opposition to the Chuck Hagel nomination makes him the “New McCarthy.” […]

    I think that an appearance of a McCarthy-like character on the hill might be the best medicine for the country considering what level we have sunk to.

    If it takes a guy like Ted Cruz to shake things up, so be it. I’m tired of listening to mealy-mouthed politicians worried about self enrichment rather than what is best for the country.

    Cruz is the exact opposite of the fake Indian…

    As annoying as he can be to watch on Fox, I now have a new-found respect for Juan Williams.
