The new McCarthyism

By now, you've probably all heard that Colin Powell went on Meet the Press today, where he endorsed Barack Obama and said a lot of really stirring things about McCain campaign and how we treat Muslims in American society.

But maybe even better are the statements he made outside the studio door, afterwards. He goes after the idea that dissent is "un-American" in a really forthright way.

It's about time someone said these things. I only hope it's the beginning of the conversation, not the end.
