Wiesenthal v. McCarthy

Time once again for another edition of Simple Answers to Simple Questions.

Today’s contestant, Mark Goldblatt at The Corner (run by the National Review, and boy howdy, has the level of common sense there dropped off since Buckley died) asks, “Why does an obsessive Nazi-hunter like Simon Wiesenthal get positive press while an obssessive Communist-hunter like Joe McCarthy is vilified?”

Wiesenthal hunted Nazis known to be guilty of crimes. McCarthy smeared a lot of innocent people as part of his quest.

This has been another edition of Simple Answers to Simple Questions.
