Aha! Juan Non-Volokh accuses me of Climate Change McCarthyism. I am one of those who:
selectively edit their comment threads...
The first reaction to Juan came 32 minutes later by "bailey":
Wow. We’re really defining McCarthyism down these days, aren’t we?
Indeed we are.
I should admit defeat and slink away. There is no way I will ever be able to top "bailey."
I will, however, say just one thing: I must confess that I am surprised to see a contributing editor to National Review--that hotbed of bigotry where even in the twenty-first century no Jews need apply to run the place--trying to use "McCarthyism" as a slur. I had thought that to work at National Review you had to like Tail Gunner Joe, and like him a lot. After all:
There is one thing that the American people know about Senator McCarthy; he, like them, is unequivocally anti-Communist. About the spokesman for American liberalism, they feel they know no such thing.
