Here yah go...
Joseph J. Ellis wrote a book called "Founding Brothers, The Revolutionary Generation."
One of the Amazon.com reviews for this book says "This book is really unique in that it
gives a really interesting perspective not only on the men [our founding fathers] , but the
dynamic between them." Now in that book by this renowned historian you will find
some tasty information on the origination of the word "democrat." Many times I've told you that our founding fathers were none too fond of the idea of democracy, or, as they viewed it, mob rule.
Here's the quote: "...the term "democrat" originated as an epithet and referred
to 'one who panders to the crude and mindless whims of the masses.'"
