Etymology

The term mugwump may be derived from the Mugwumps, a group of nineteenth-century American politicians who were against political corruption. That term comes from the Algonquin word mugguomp, meaning "person of importance" or "war leader."[3] There was also a group of British pacifists who joined the Labour Party after World War I who were called Mugwumps.[4]

There is an Old English word spelled the same "mugwump". Which means “Mugwump is a derogatory word for somebody in charge who affects to be above petty squabbles and factions. So when your boss tries to make peace at the meeting table like an impartial angel, he is being a mugwump.”[5]
