Yeah, I hate it, too. And I've heard "Voldie" but never "Morty". Eww.

I think what I hate the most about the whole "Democrat Party" thing is that it's obviously meant to imply that the Democrats aren't really democratic, which is nonsense, because BOTH parties are small-d democratic (by virtue of the process they use to get themselves elected, among other things).


Trivia: The Democratic Party was once called the Democratic-Republican party, and if you'd asked any of the Founding Fathers what type of government the US was, they'd have told you republican, because of course it was and still is a constitutional republic. It's also a representative democracy, so completely without referring to party, the United states is both democratic and republican. [/history dork]

I don't even get why they think it's clever. 'Democrat' is still cognate with 'democracy', after all. So their whole thing is basically 'HAHA WE'RE IN UR NOOZ MEDIA STEALIN UR SUFFIX', but they pretend it has more deeper meaning than people who like to annoy me by calling me Christine? Whatever, dudes.
