Here’s in interesting blog post that compares Bill O’Reilly to Joe McCarthy. A choice excerpt:

MCCARTHY: You know the [American] Civil Liberties Union has been listed as "a front for, and doing the work of," the Communist Party?
OREILLY: [T]here is no question the ACLU and the judges who side with them are terror allies. (July 25, 2005)

While I’m sure Ann Coulter probably thinks this is a good thing (as Joe McCarthy was her role model), it certainly sends shivers down my spine.
