Democrats hate it when people call it the “Democrat Party.”
A friend of ours insists that that is what they should be called. To call them “Democratic” invests them with a heritage and an import that is not accurate nor earned, given their political positions.
She is right. The Democrat Party is what it is. And the behavior of the White House press corps during the press conference — just about everyone in the room is no doubt either a registered Democrat or thinks like one — confirms just why we should continue to call Democrats the Democrat Party.
It’s petty. But that’s what makes it so much fun.
