In a humorously headlined piece ("Obey promotes the patriotism of Democrats"), David Obey of Wisconsin was quoted as having said this about House Majority Leader John Boehner today in Washington:
"I come from the state of Joe McCarthy," said Obey, D-Wausau. "(I) know a third-rate McCarthy when I see one. And we saw one yesterday."
Note to Diana Irey: John Murtha was also there, and equally unhinged.
Oh, and welcome to Tom Delay's world, John.
