Democrat is a Noun, Not an Adjective.

I’m not sure where this started.  I think it was with Rush Limbaugh.  But a lot of those on the right refer to the “Democrat party.”  Presumably this is some sort of slam, but really it just makes them look stupid.  Democrat is a noun.  Democratic is an adjective.  Perhaps the confusion is not born of malice but of ignorance.  Republican is both a noun and an adjective.

    you need to fix the head line on this thread. I would think it is Not AN Adjective. You have it NOT AND Adjective.

  2. ” Presumably this is some sort of slam, but really it just makes them look stupid. ”

    they excel at looking stupid!

    I think the disease of “looking stupid” has spread – it’s become an epidemic nationwide. Hopefully there will be a cure in November 2012.

    House Passes Measure to Stave Off Government Shutdown for Two Weeks

    WASHINGTON – The House on Tuesday passed a two-week budget
    measure that cuts $4 billion in federal spending and Senate
    Democrats said they would quickly follow suit, averting any
    threat of a government shutdown when government funding runs
    out Friday.

    But the measure, approved on a bipartisan vote of 335 to 91,
    extends only through March 18, allowing little time for the
    Republican-led House and the Democratic Senate to bridge
    substantial divisions over how much money to allocate to
    federal agencies for the remainder of the fiscal year that
    ends Sept. 30.

    This world is getting nuttier each day.

    The Supreme Court has ruled that the First Amendment protects fundamentalist church members who mount attention-getting, anti-gay protests outside military funerals.

    The court voted 8-1 Wednesday in favor of the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan. The decision upheld an appeals court ruling that threw out a $5 million judgment to the father of a dead Marine who sued church members after they picketed his son’s funeral.
