The Superficial Aspect

Johnson, Gerald W.
May 1954
New Republic;5/24/54, Vol. 130 Issue 21, p16
The article focuses on the political tussle between Republican Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin and some of the members of the Democratic Party regarding the issue of the political damage that McCarthy had done. Senator John Dulles has not been able to operate effectively with McCarthy on his neck, and for the past six months the U.S. Department of Defense has been engaged mainly in defense against McCarthy. Even the Republican National Committee has been able to deal few heavy blows against the Democrats owing to its preoccupation with McCarthy.
