Democratic Socialists of America
by

The Republican National Committee passed a resolution decrying the Democrats’ “march toward socialism.”  I don’t really have a problem with it — modern American liberalism really is just a moderate form of democratic socialism, it is becoming less moderate under President Obama, and both the Republican Party and the broader Right have a long, distinguished history of criticizing the Democrats for “creeping socialism.”

I’m just glad they didn’t adopt a resolution renaming the Democrats the “Democrat Socialist Party.” Why? Because there’s a fine line between ideological labeling and childish-sounding name-calling, and that proposed resolution seemed to be on that wrong side of that line. Sort of like insisting on calling the Democrats the “Democrat Party” instead of the “Democratic Party.”
