JFK and the 1954 censure of Senator Joseph McCarthy

Recommended Posts

Excerpt from " The Few Courageous Senators" by Peter Beinart in today's New York Times:


"In 1956, Senator John F. Kennedy -- despite himself skipping a vote two years earlier on censuring the demagogue Joseph McCarthy -- chronicled senators who represented 'Profiles In Courage.' Among his examples were two legendary Southerners, Thomas Hart Benton and Sam Houston, who a century earlier had become pariahs for opposing the drive toward succession."
