Is "Populism" In Your Tea Party?

From the Wall Street Journal:

Conservative activists Wednesday sought to put a different twist on populism with a series of "tea parties" to denounce not corporations but government spending and taxes. Supporters and critics bickered over whether the parties amounted to a popular groundswell or false anger stirred up by cable-television hosts.

Tea parties aside, the anti-corporate anger hasn't so far led to a movement with specific demands, let alone a new political party, as in the past.
