I know that McCarthy was right in what he did. I just don't know how history books keep saying he "Provided no evidence". I have read most of Treason, but maybe he didnt need any evidence..or am I wrong?
I have had people try to lessen the value of these claims by saying something like "Even Lucile Ball was accused of being a commie by McCarthy". Well, as it turned out, she was. I loved to watch her on TV, but she registered to the communist party in the '30's. Poor judgment doesn't make you innocent. And McCarthy's drinking didn't make him wrong.
