Who “forced” him?
Do editors commonly hold their writers at gunpoint?
I have no idea what, if anything, tea parties will ultimately accomplish but it’s better than sitting around the house complaining and doing nothing where no one can hear you but your dog.
If nothing else, they burrow under the left’s skin.
That’s good enough reason for me....:)
Not who but what. Events forced him to comment. He would have preferred not writing about the tea parties at all. Now he's had to stain the august pages of the Left's New Testament, The New York Times, with stories about the rabble on the right.
We're too big to ignore. And he's pi$$ed about it.
