Just a thought

It occurred to me that when it is said of a politician "He/she is pandering to his/her base," that is exactly the case, in the most pejorative sense of the word.  The base have no principles, no compunction, no ambition, and no shame.  Quite likely they are the base to whom the politician is pandering, and the subset of the society he/she hopes to see increased in size.
