Word of the Day: Civic Cheerleader

civic cheerleader [noun]

Those who jump on the local community political band wagon for almost anything new that is said to be “progressive” or that is claimed to be an improvement of “quality of life” often without regard to cost, unintended consequences, or the fact that relatively few citizens will directly benefit from the project. Civic cheerleaders often regard any questioning of their pet projects as negative, mean spirited, and anti-progressive. They very often take sober debate and consideration as a personal affront to their self-righteous well meaning.
