Does Ms. Parker have an editor? In today’s column she writes:
When Rahm Emanuel said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste,” he wasn’t the first or the last to express the sentiment. George W. Bush was accused of taking advantage of Americans’ post-Sept. 11 terror to expand executive power.
Could somebody tell her she can’t think straight? The second sentence doesn’t follow on the first, unless being accused of something is synonymous with expressing support for that something.
