You know, they say that if you can’t learn from history, you’re doomed to repeat it, but I don’t see what’s so bad about that. What if there are things you missed the first (or second) time around that you wish you could see? Like witch-hunts, for example:
Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.) puts the number of socialists in the House at 17.
“Some of the men and women I work with in Congress are socialists,” Bachus told local government leaders on Thursday, according to the Birmingham News.
Bachus gave the specific number of House socialists when pressed later by a reporter.
Some of you may hope that this doesn’t get out of hand like last time, but not me. I can’t wait. I missed the last Red Scare documentary on the History Channel, and I’ve just been kicking myself ever since. And maybe this time I’ll be the one who gets to say, “Have you no decency, sir? At long last, have you no decency?”
Can’t you just see me saying that?
