DUBIOUS ACHIEVEMENT. After Eugene McCarthy died, it briefly crossed my mind that the young and the stupid (and especially the young and stupid) might confuse this Sen. McCarthy with that Sen. McCarthy.

A day or two later, I'm looking through the new Esquire and I see some letters to the editor referring to an illustration that accompanied an article in the previous issue on "Good Night, and Good Luck," the George Clooney movie about Edward R. Murrow and that Sen. McCarthy.

Yep -- a major publication managed to depict the portly, oily, balding, despicable Tailgunner Joe as the trim, dapper, white-haired Clean Gene.
