The Obama Administration Re-Invents McCarthy-Style Witch Hunts

     Only this time it's run by the Department of Justice,[1] so instead of a damaged reputation and a possible "Contempt of Congress"[2] charge, their victims will face criminal charges and hard time in Federal prisons.  Don't look for any semi-drunken harangues about sneaking Commie infiltrations, either. The reconstituted Clinton-era Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee won't be going after any foreign-influenced smalltimers like the Boston Marathon bombers, oh no sirreebob, they're after bigger fish and game, like those horrible-evil right-wingers that got into a bloodless standoff over grazing on Federal lands.

     The deviation-DeTECtors of DTEC'll keep us safe even if they have to jail up every harelipped machine-gunner on the line at Knob Creek, and your cousin with the Gadsden flag tacked up in his garage besides.

     Personally, I haven't felt this comforted since the time I learned the Russians have had a "deadman's switch" last-strike system up running since the 1960s -- and it's still in place.

     That Mr. Eric Holder, he sure does know how to cure paranoia: by justifying it.

     See ya in the re-education camps!
