The constant media frame for the shocking-to-many success of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders is that both campaigns represent the rejection of elites in favor of populism, albeit contradictory populisms of the right and left. Would that it were so simplistic.

Pretend Democrats Rewrite Column Advising Obama Not To Run For Re-Election | Jason Linkins | Posted 01.21.2012 | Home

Douglas Schoen and Patrick Caddell, who pretend to be Democrats even though they do not support Democratic politicians or causes or policy platforms, have a column up in the Wall Street Journal advising President Barack Obama to quit now and not run for re-election, even though the only GOP candidate that seems to pose a consistent challenge to him in the polls is Mitt Romney, and the Obama re-elect team has sort of started raising money to run for re-election and everything. It's almost needless to say that Democrats should never follow the advice of Schoen and Caddell.

Their advice for President Barack Obama? Quit. That's sure to send a powerful message of leadership and responsibility.

We've seen this pattern before. A non-sourced, anonymous story enters the right-wing blogosphere and gets picked up by mainstream media, allowing the right to stovepipe their insanity.
