Nattering Nabobs of Negativism

Blogpost title uttered by Spiro T. Agnew, but coined by William Safire . . . I think.

Assonance, consonance, alliteration.
We're the best of any nation.
When we act with determination
We create a sensation.

. . . Unlike those nattering nabobs of negativism.

Who are these nabobs? I don't know. I thought everybody else knew.
