Let's call it populism

Rich Lowry - The Apocalyptic Centrism of Lou Dobbs: "His trick is to spout cliches drawn from the right and the left -- any one of which has a 50/50 chance that the average person will agree with it -- and give them a patina of freshness by wrapping them in angry and dire rhetoric. That rhetoric is their essential glue, making Dobbs the country's foremost practitioner of apocalyptic centrism."
