I'm ready for my McCarthy moment now

I keep waiting for us to have the "no shame" McCarthy moment. And waiting. And waiting. Every time they have a crowning moment of stupid I'm thinking "Maybe this is it, maybe this is the one!" And things continue as normal.

1. She's been thoroughly discredited by now, except among the most hard-core anti-vaxxers

 



BTW, Joseph Welch's statement to Senator Joe McCarthy was actually:

"Senator, may we not drop this? We know he belonged to the Lawyers Guild. Let us not assassinate this lad further, Senator. You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?"

3. My father did a perfect Joseph Welch impression, he also

would add that it was the pinnacle moment when the nation realized how Delusional McCarthy was .

2. i didn't know what you were talking about

so based on the first reply i googled mccarthy vaccine. top response:

Jenny McCarthy Body Count

Jenny McCarthy is a celebrity from the United States. She is most well known for posing nude as a Playboy Playmate, for picking her nose on the MTV show Singled Out, and for being the former girlfriend of actor/comedian Jim Carrey.


In 2002 she gave birth to a son named Evan. In 2006 she started promoting Evan as being a “Crystal Child” and herself as being an “Indigo Mom”.


In May 2007 Jenny McCarthy announced that Evan was not a “Crystal Child” after all, but had been diagnosed with autism (some people have said that there is a possibility that he may have been misdiagnosed and he actually has Landau-Kleffner syndrome). She holds on to the mistaken belief that Evan’s alleged autism was caused by his receiving childhood vaccines. Most anti-vaccination believers claim that the compound thimerosal led to an increase in autism cases. The Measles/Mumps/Rubella vaccine is their usual target. However, thimerosal was never used as a preservative in the Measles/Mumps/Rubella vaccine. No vaccine licensed since 1999 has contained thimerosal as a preservative, except a few multidose container vaccines such as some (but not all) HIB and Influenza vaccines. Autism has not declined since 1999, thereby disproving this connection. In addition, Jenny McCarthy's child, Evan, was not born until 2002, well after thimerosal had been removed from most childhood vaccines. This has led Jenny McCarthy, and others, to claim that it was the MMR vaccine itself that caused autism or that it was vaccines in general that caused autism. All of these ideas have been disproven in multiple scientific and legal examinations of the evidence.


so now i have to ask you this: was there something in the news today that inspired your post? thanks

Everything I've seen since Dubya was selected. But nothing ever does the trick.

4. I'm thinking the same.

Maybe we need to as a nation write them letters stating just that. I wonder if they would care though?

On edit: We are talking about Senator McCarthy and his communist witch hunt of the fifties aren't we?
