On this day in 1954, anti-Communist crusader, vile demagogue and Republican Senator Joseph McCarthy’s career officially ended.

“Let us not assassinate this lad further, Senator. You have done enough. Have you no sense of decency sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”  – Special Counsel for the Army Joseph N. Welch to Senator McCarthy during the Army-McCarthy hearings

Senator McCarthy died three years later in 1957.  Good riddance to bad garbage.
