It is not one hundred percent certain which McCarthy Waters meant, but it can be either the long-time Senator and unsuccessful presidential candidate Eugene McCarthy or another US Senator – Joseph Raymond McCarthy, who is infamous for his hunt for alleged Soviet spies in the US administration and media.
