So is it your point that he should have kept quiet about Communist spying at the highest levels of the U.S. government? Who else was out there advancing the cause of anti-communism?

I don't believe he was advancing the cause of anti-communism. He talked about the cause of anti-communism. He reminds me of the Public Health Director Dr. Almus Pickerbaugh in the novel Arrowsmith, who had no better idea about fighting infectious disease than to hold public rallies promoting the notion of health.

You really should read Coulter's book.

Now, Sinclair Lewis knew how to pillory phonies.
I don't know if he'd be acceptable at all today, though.
Not shrill enough.

McCarthy advanced anticommunism because, among other things, it was his rhetoric which defeated over a dozen New Dealers in the 1952 election.

He made it very uncomfortable to be a fellow traveler.
