I'm really enjoying this book. I completely agree with the examples of how 'populism' is co-opted by the market, "it's everywhere and nowhere", with hypocrite prophets such as Willy O'liely (Bill O'Reilly)
But, I ask myself, who is the audience he's writing to and trying to influence. When, as a graduate of English, I have to look up one to two words a page it seems he's writing to the same burgeiose (sp?) he's making fun of who read the NYT. It's ironic at best and pretentious at worst.
If you want a true 'populist' movement in the political sense by the working (labor) class, working poor, and 'middle class' (everywhere and nowhere) you need to write in a way that does not distract from the message or make you look like a 1% who bites the hand that feeds.
