ZOT! Common Errors in English -- Democrat vs Democratic
www.wsu.edu ^

Posted on 09/09/2006 2:41:58 PM PDT by without lies

Certain Republican members of Congress have played the childish game in recent years of referring to the opposition as the “Democrat Party,” hoping to imply that Democrats are not truly democratic. They succeed only in making themselves sound ignorant, and so will you if you imitate them. The name is “Democratic Party.”

The true name of the democrat party should be the whining party.

You are a troll and you are wrong about this. Do people ask you to register as a "Democratic?" Of course not. They are democrats and the correct way to refer to the party is the democrat party. Just the way it is.

You got it wrong. It's "Demokrat". DemocRAT will also work (RAT for short).

Is it Democratic for to pressure on a TV station to pull a program with which you disagree?

Is censoring a movie democratic or totalitarian?

When was the name officially changed? It had always been the Democrat Party. I first noticed this Democratic change around 2002.

At our big local Festival I just went to, the local Democrats had their booth, with all of their little fliers and keychains and pamphlets and signs....

And absolutely NOWHERE on ANY of them was the word Democrat....or Democratic, either.

They wanted no recognition to the National Party with their candidates.

I think I have the proper usage:

al gore is a "democrat"

al frankin is a "democrat"

Taken together they are two democrats.

Taking the party as a whole, the proper term would be "capitulating isolationists".

Yeah, and Republicans also succeed at:

1) Controlling the House

2) Controlling the Senate

3) Controlling the White House

4) Controlling the Supreme Court

And, um, what have you guys in the Democrat Party (errrr...I mean Democratic Party) been successful at lately?

Nothing, so shut the f*ck up, loser.
