Dave Obey: Jerk, Yes. Populist? Hell, No

Dave Obey always was a jerk.

And he always claimed to be a 'populist.' Milk-Carton Tommy spoke about Obey's wonderfulness to the commoners.

In light of Obey now working on K Street for a lobbying firm whose clients include Boeing, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, and Peabody Energy, it's also worth calling up some of the praise liberals have poured on Obey in recent years.

Even populists have to have $Umpty-Million incomes on top of their taxpayer-paid retirement bennies, eh?
