"But communism is GOOD! Salon say so!"

...Less than three decades after Truman fought off the CPUSA-backed challenge of "Progressive" Henry Wallace, President Jimmy Carter in 1977 expressed his pride that America had finally gotten over its "inordinate fear of communism."

At that very moment, of course, Vietnamese refugees were still fleeing that Communist regime in Hanoi, the Khmer Rouge "killing fields" nightmare in Cambodia had just passed, Soviet-backed Marxists were taking charge in Nicauragua and Angola and, two years later, those communists in Moscow sent their tanks rolling into Afghanistan.
