Last night on one of the MSNBC shows they were talking about Ted Cruz with “conservative” guest and at the end the host closed by saying that Ted Cruz is the new Joe McCarthy and the guest just managed to slip in and state that he is also the new Ray Cohn that Cruz merges the 2 people.
Who was Ray Cohn I refer one and all to Wikipedia. But to condense he was a self hating slimeball. So for a conservative to slip this into then conversation about him makes it appear that the political long knives on the right are coming out against him.
Well to cite wikipedia
at the time of his death
“He participated in clinical trials of AZT, a drug initially synthesized to treatcancer, but later developed as the first anti-HIV agent for AIDS patients. He insisted to his dying day that his disease was liver cancer. He died on August 2, 1986 in Bethesda, Maryland, of complications from AIDS at the age of 59″
