1. I’d make a campaign ad of his comments and play it against every Senate Democrat incumbent running for reelection with a very few words: “Had enough of this garbage? If your answer is yes, defeat _____ and vote for _______.”
2. I’d take to the Senate floor and point out that many, including I’d guess Mr. Rockefeller, are very critical of Joseph McCarthy who said he had a list of communists in the State Department. [He may or may not have had a list, but of course he was substantially right about the infestation within the State Department.] Anyway, I’d point out the “McCarthyite” tactic and challenge Senator Rockefeller to start naming names.
