"On a related note, my phone's been ringing with requests from cable news shows - left and right - to discuss Tea Party extremism. The same phone was silent last week when my cover story about the difficulties facing our troops in Afghanistan was published. I won't be appearing on any cable shows to discuss the Tea Party extremists this week. I said what I said, and stand by it. But I do find the 'news' judgment of the cable networks nauseating... and I can understand why, despite the yellow ribbons and 'We Support Our Troops' blather, our young people in uniform feel abandoned by a bored, ignorant and self-involved public back home."
