Democrats can't take the heat

Mark Steyn writes that while the Democrats are more than willing to criticize Republicans, they view any criticism of Democrats as questioning one's patriotism.
"I have five words for Americans," he thundered. "This is your wake up call!" Is that five words? Or is it six? Well, it's all very nuanced, according to whether you hyphenate the "wake-up." Maybe he should have said, "I have four words plus a common hyphenated expression for Americans." I'd suggest the rewrite to him personally, but I don't want him to stare huffily at me and drone, "How dare you attack my patriotism."
