Fully laid out by Byron York. (Thanks to Jonah Goldberg for the link.)

I am still waiting on the New York Times ethics folks to reprimand Rich not only for the McCarthyite slur he employed, but also for the basic errors he made in writing his latest column.

    You do a disservice to Joe McCarthy by comparing Obama's misrepresentations for political purposes to his (McCarthy's) plain speaking about facts as he saw them. Bluntly, Obama lied or at the least blundered ignorantly. McCarthy never said anything he did not think was true and that later events did not support, however stridently he expressed his views. Conservatives need to stop agreeing with the left's malicious character assassination of Tail Gunner Joe.
