  •  I am amazed at the negative backlash... (5+ / 0-)

    towards the word populist.  It is an insult to call a politician a populist.  

    I always thought of populism as, oh I don't know... what's the word... oh yea... Democracy?

    Media hauls out the word POPULIST as if some politician is pandering to the will of the people as opposed to where they feel they should be pandering; the 1%.

    "Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not YET sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favour..."
