How many more did he get re-elected because he made anticommunists look like flaming nutcases?

I agree. I was young at the time (born 1945) but I recall some of the nutjobs who were feeling their oats at that time. Anything not straight from the JBS handbook was "pinko."

I don't know if McCarthy was sincere or politically expedient but his effect was counterproductive, IMO.
