A person I do not like

I do not like Bernie Sanders. Not enough to want to see him replaced with Generic De Facto Democrat (or a Republican), however. He is not ineffectual, like Kucinich; he is not short of caring, like Kucinich; but he does seem to specialize in red herrings, well-tainting, half-truth, and so on. He is in my register as a demagogue. (I might say ‘populist’, except that term has been rehabilitated for some reason.)

I just listened to a Sanders tirade against Ben Bernanke, and I’m not sure if a single thing he said – I mean shouted like a maniac – was relevant. I don’t mind opposing an appointment, but please try not to sound like a tinpot dictator.
