What is it with many conservative members of the Republican party? Or should I call it the Republic party? That would be the equivalent of what they call the Democratic party: “the Democrat party.” If they hate us, let them think “Ick!” and put the —ic at the end of the word. Is that so hard?
My guess it’s a way to demean the opposition. I first noticed it coming from Limbaugh many years ago. It has spread widely. Sometimes in my car I will put on the bloviating blimp just to see what is causing his neck veins to bulge on that particular day, but I can rarely stay tuned for more than a couple of minutes (which always seems to be sufficient time for several “Democrat” excoriations).
