Permit me to reassure Mr. Reich.

(Via AoSHQ) He’s worried that we’re going to be too exclusive:

Make no mistake: Angry right-wing populism lurks just below the surface of the terrible American economy, ready to be launched not only at Obama but also at liberals, intellectuals, gays, blacks, Jews, the mainstream media, coastal elites, crypto socialists, and any other potential target of paranoid opportunity.

This is, of course, absurd. God forbid that this should happen, of course, but if it did we’d take anybody willing to carry a torch and shake a pitchfork while muttering “rutabaga.” Doesn’t anybody on the Left understand the primary definition of “populist” anymore?
