Hotel executive Jim Graves, the Democratic opponent of the Minnesota Loon, Michele Bachmann (R-MN), has launched a web video directly comparing her to former Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-WI):
“I have a message for Rep. Bachmann: it’s nothing to be proud of,” Graves said of his opponent's fundaising in an email to supporters Thursday. “That money was the direct result of a hateful and dangerous witch-hunt that viciously smeared a dedicated public servant. It echoed of a dark time in our nation’s history that we thought was behind us.”
“McCarthyism was dangerous then. It’s dangerous now.”
Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) is one of the Minnesota Loon's four cohorts in this religious bigotry McCarthyism.
