Yes, I remember Krauthammer being downright appalled at the “town hall protests,” basically saying how undignified it was and how it would backfire on the Republicans. Ditto for the “tea party.”
Krauthammer can offer some interesting insight sometimes on certain issues, but when it comes to grassroots/populism/mid-America, he has a massive blind-spot. I’m also reminded of when Palin made her famous “death panel” Facebook posting, and Krauthammer condescendingly said she should ‘leave the room’... and then he himself pretty much repeated all the anti-Obamacare points she had just made in her post!

When you boil it all down, it’s not so much left vs right, nor liberal vs conservative, nor even Democrat vs Republican, it’s Washington vs the rest of us.

A condesending pr*ck, who displays a 'there is no one smarter than me' attitude and then steals from them.

I don't remember this. I do, however, remember reading Krauthammer's columns on how the Tea Party had brought so much energy to the GOP that it had opened up an "enthusiasm gap" over the Democrats. I also remember Krauthammer praising the fact that huge Tea Party gatherings were filled with well-behaved, informed citizens who didn't engage in violence or vandalize buildings, unlike the "Occupy" types.
I'm not sure why there's so much hostility toward Krauthammer - the fact is that he's presented the conservative cause to the American public and argued for limited government far more effectively than either of the last two GOP nominees.
