The “nattering nabobs of negativism” redux

Reading misanthropic criticisms of the historic protests around the word brings to mind the unforgettable alliteration of the forgettable Spiro Agnew spoken in 1970:

“In the United States today, we have more than our share of the nattering nabobs of negativism. They have formed their own 4-H Club: the ‘hopeless, hysterical hypochondriacs of history.’”

Who knew Agnew would come into his own nearly half a century after we laughed ourselves silly at his denunciation?
