“Have you left no sense of decency?”


Paul Krugman, on reports that:

Republicans in Congress are planning to investigate the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, looking for evidence of corruption and wrongdoing. …

What the GOP wants is to make people afraid even to do research that produces conclusions they don’t like. And they don’t stop at trying to undermine the research — they go after the researchers personally. …

McCarthy had nothing on these guys.

One Joe to another:

“Until this moment, Senator, I think I never gauged your cruelty or your recklessness… You’ve done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”

J. Welch to J. McCarthy, Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
