Hickenlooper iR-I_al to his feet demanding that Connally be seated nntier Senate rules prohibiting a member from impugning the honor of another senator. Sen. Lyndon Johnson (D-Texl moved that his colleague be permitted to "proceed in order" and the Senate gave Connally a go- ahead by voice vote. Returning to the attack, Connally called Taft a man "who speaks with the month ... of the demagogue" Before Connally had finished, other Democratic senators intcrnipted to praise him as champion of measures designed to thwart communism.
