Here's Why Conservatives Are Always Saying The Name Of The Democratic Party Wrong

“You know I always say Democrat. You know why? Because it sounds worse.”
-Former President Donald Trump

The truncated “Democrat,” ... “rhymes with rat, bureaucrat, kleptocrat, plutocrat,” Cornfield said. ”‘Crats’ are bad. So you can see why they do it.”

David Pepper, a former Democratic Party chairman in Ohio, says Republicans’ phrasing has “clearly been thought about.” Even so, he doesn’t see trying to erase it as a good use of Democrats’ time as the party seeks to reset the national agenda after four years of Trump.

He said that while President Joe Biden has pledged national unity, “the other side is literally trying to make the other party sound like rodents.”

1. Yeah, rethugs, here's to unity and bipartisanship. Right. I'm waiting.

I suspect I'll still be waiting when hell freezes over.

2. The GOP is the party of juvenile nonsense

They clearly don't have the substance to actually legislate and do some good for the world...
so they resort to name calling. What worthless fucks.

10. I thought it was the extra syllable scaring them off

Four syllable words are problematic and can be precarious to articulate.

12. I think an issue should be made of this slur every time it occurs. The conversation stops and the

grammar of the offender is corrected.
