Thinking more about about that whole McCarthy thing: if politics is just an expression of naked self-interest (and if you dig Coulter, it probably is), then it makes more sense than it would appear on first incredulous blush. I mean, carrying out a witch hunt ruins the viability of the opposition and, no matter how cynical, would seem to benefit the McCarthyites.
Then again, that whole thing ended up...well, in the 60's. And I know conservatives hate the 60's, but it was kind of a bad time for them.
So witch hunt away, kids! Maybe you could start with Joe Lieberman? I hear he's Jeeeeeewish...
