Senator McCarthy

Sixty-seven years ago, an insignificant US senator informed a West Virginian women's club that the State Department was "infested" with communists. Whoosh, his name — Joe McCarthy — streaked like a meteor. 

To help Joe unearth communists for his oodles of "witch hunts," he hired a slender young guy with thick tousled hair, a family friend named Robert "Bobby" Kennedy.

Bobby proved an excellent student. Soon he used the ferreting skills he learned from Joe to hunt down that "Little Guy," Teamster Jimmy Hoffa.
