Avery Sewell and Coercion
The Other McCain is suggesting a new hero-- the unlikely one of Montgomery Ward's CEO who was forcibly taken out of his officers by men with rifles for the unforgivable sin of defying the all mighty and all knowing FDR. In ordinary times, this would seem absurd. But when "sharpening your elbows" is a key Obama strategy, resistance to coercion does take on a heroism it would ordinarily lack. Incidentally Barry, the Tea Party movement shows that when pushed, Americans will push back.
