"Defining Populism Down"
If downing shots of liquor is really the truest sign of “being a man (or woman) of the people” then I guess every dude in every frat in America is now working class. Indeed, even Matt Yglesias, certified pointy-headed elite, enjoys a celebratory shot or two every now and again. Meanwhile, a little birdie told me a lot of working class protestant church folk are teetotalers. But who am I to correct Roger Simon, who doubtless has so much working class cred that wine bottles spontaneously combust in his presence.
