It's like the word was invented for "journalists" like Jon Meacham and Evan Thomas, who are dutifully filling their Newsweek role of trying to get Americans to blame everything but their corporate-government overlords for their corporate government's problems: it's your own fault! you're greedy! you refuse to sacrifice! you feel entitled to things like health care and social security paid for with your tax dollars! but then how will we fund the wars and the bank bailouts? tsk tsk tsk. It's time to take one for the team, America. etc.
I struggle not to feel hatred for these people. For the most part I manage to hold at a level of simmering contempt, but I'm not sure how much longer that can last, I swear. Grrrrrr.
