    I was just listening to NPR and there was a GOP commentator on and he was refering to the Democratic party as the Democrat party. This is not the only person I have heard say this, W was saying it on the campaign trail.

    Why do they do that??

    Just rude, does it poll well?

    Please explain

    Math Genius: Two major political parties in this nation:
    1. Republicans (Conservatives)
    2. Democrats (Liberals)

    Number 1 is in power; number 2 isn't! And number 2 is not "democratic" party; democratic more accurately describes our government process! Liberal political party (number 2) is the Democrats!

    Please clear something up for me....don't conservatives believe in fiscal responsibility in the government (i.e. attempting to minimize deficit spending) ?

    Turn about is fair play, I've started calling the Rebuplican party the Fascist evangelical party, I'm just trying to frame the debate.

    I believe that the party used to be called the Democrat party. Bob Dole used to refer to the World Wars as "Democrat wars", IIRC.

    "Democratic" has too many syllables for Dubya. The rest just follow suit like for instance...sheep.

    To the victors go the spoils. Just be thankful Kerry did not win, otherwise we'd rename the Democrats to the Weeble Wobble Party.
