1954McCarthyism: Joseph Welch, special counsel for the United States Army, lashes out at SenatorJoseph McCarthy during hearings on whether Communism has infiltrated the Army giving McCarthy the famous rebuke, "You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?"

Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.
