I don't see how he didn't win by a comfortable margin. I've been assured that all minorities will vote for a black candidate solely on the basis of their skin color. Add in all the republicans voting for him too and he should have got like 80% of the vote. Clearly the good people of Florida are the victims of mass election tampering.

Loaded Six String: Does this apply to socially liberal, fiscal conservatives in your experience as well? I only ask because I don't use the term Democratic party, yet I'm not a raging right-wing asshole. Could just be me I suppose.


1) you are gramatically incorrect if you use the phrase "Democrat Party." Not because of anything to do with whether it's an adjective or whatever. But because it's a proper name. The proper name is the Democratic Party.

2) the phrase became popular on the right for the "rat" emphasis. With that in mind, you should be aware when you say it that not only are you gramatically wrong, but you are using a term conceived to be insulting.

3) so, now you know the grammar and history of this epithet and if you continue to use it, then yes, you are a right-wing asshole.

Perhaps they would, if the left didn't call them sellouts, house negros, traitors, and uncle Toms. Perhaps more women would be in line with the GOP's message if the left didn't call them sluts, whores, wish for their rape or blame the victim every time a woman has an accusation of assault against a Democrat.

Somacandra: Jim_Callahan: It's a bit silly grammatically, but the part of speech on Democratic isn't quite right for a title either, more a remnant of the party being called Democratic Republican back in the 1800s

No, its the official legal name and title of the party--end of story. All else is dildo bullshiat. Its not named the Republic Party, its the Republican Party. Its not the Greenish Party--its the Green Party. Its not the Constitutional Party, its the Constitution Party. Its not the Liberty Party, its the Libertarian Party. Its not the Democrat Party, its the Democratic Party. Use common sense. Don't be F'in stupid.


Dude, you inspired me! From now on, anytime someone says Democrat Party to me, I'm going to immediately say "Yeah, but the Republic party..." and watch them short a fuse... what, was that not right?

Jim_Callahan: antidisestablishmentarianism: When someone uses Democrat when they should be using Democratic, you can dismiss anything else they have to say.

Why? It's a bit silly grammatically, but the part of speech on Democratic isn't quite right for a title either, more a remnant of the party being called Democratic Republican back in the 1800s. It's also rather absurdly general, as both parties are democratic (and republican, for that matter, were you to use the adjective use of that word instead of the noun).

Not that "the Grand Old Party" is any less silly, but at least it's an actual name instead of a generic adjective regarding the system of government for the entire first world.


Regardless, adults should refer to other adults and groups as they want to be referred to. Even if it's the Democraticallistically party

No idea why. None at all. But the rule applies. Any time someone says "Democrat Party" they're raging right-wing assholes. Again. No clue why. You're right, it shouldn't mean anything. But it always does.
