    I almost put Kucinich down, too. I can't stand what a self righteous dweeb he is.

    But it has to be Hillary.

    I asked him to, but I asked for "Dem" and "GOP", not "Republican" and "Democrat"...

    but he thinks that "Democrat" instead of "Democratic" as it should be is funny and a slur...

    .:rolleyes::steamin:

    What's the friggin difference? GOP = Republican, Democrat = Democratic. Is that wrong?

    Know what, next time learn to friggin post before you come asking for changes, then ***** when the changes you request don't perfectly meet some hidden expectation.

    There was no intent other than to accurately portray your question to the best of my abillity in the clearest way possible in the two second I had available to do it.

    ****s sake.:mad:

    thanks for fixing it... and for the record, when I made it I thought I could get all the candidates names in one poll, both GOP and Dem... but I had to create 2 separate ones and it was too late


    and you know all about GOPers considering "Democrat" to be a slur and a joke... don't play dumb

    I have never heard anything like that in my life. "Liberal", maybe. "Democrat"? As opposed to "Republican"?

    I love your whacked out theories, but this one is just stupid.

    Actually, I know no clue what you're talking about. I have never heard that before in my life, nor has a single Democrat EVER told me the term "Democrat" was offensive is some way......

    Next time, instead of trying to be helpful, I'll just delete them and you can fix them your ****ing self.:mad:

    Since you love Wikipedia so much:
    [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democrat_Party_(phrase[/url])

    "Members of the Republican Party, from political commentators to President Bush himself, made especially extensive use of the term "Democrat Party" during the run-up to the 2006 midterm elections. In response to the growing use of the epithet in late 2006, a corresponding epithet for the Republican Party, the "Republic Party", began to circulate in liberal parts of the blogosphere; the previous Republican waves of usage had inspired the "Publican Party", but this failed to catch on.[20]

    Democrats complained about the use of "Democrat" as an adjective in the 2007 State of the Union address by President Bush. "Like nails on a chalkboard," complained Clinton White House Chief of Staff John Podesta. Political analyst Charlie Cook attributed its use to force of habit rather than a deliberate epithet by Republicans: "[They] have been doing it so long that they probably don't even realize they're doing it."[14] On February 4, 2007, Bush joked in a speech to House Democrats, stating "Now look, my diction isn't all that good. I have been accused of occasionally mangling the English language. And so I appreciate you inviting the head of the Republic Party."[21] Additionally, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) repeatedly invoked the phrase "The Republic Party" on the floor of the United States House of Representatives in February 2007 while lambasting Congressional Republicans.[22]

    Another corresponding noun-as-adjective response has also begun to circulate on the Internet: "The Republicans Party." [1][2][3] Members of the Democratic Underground have proposed that "Republicon Party" be used as a counter to the Republican adoption of "Democrat Party" as a putdown.[23] Sherman Yellen suggests "The Republicants" as suitably comparable in terms of negative connotation in an April 29, 2007 Huffington Post commentary[24]."



    And dude chill out, you wanted to be a moderator so bad now you get to be one... you don't have to threaten people with your "power". You upset that your boy Thompson sucks or something? Get over it... they all do!

    And I don't think Sean would like you deleting paying members threads/posts in an abuse of your power very much

    [QUOTE=Tanginius;2276347]Since you love Wikipedia so much:[/quote]

    Fine, I stand corrected. However I have yet to memorize the entire database of Wikipedia, and maintain that I was unaware this was a supposed "insult".

    [QUOTE=Tanginius;2276347]And dude chill out, you wanted to be a moderator so bad now you get to be one... you don't have to threaten people with your "power". You upset that your boy Thompson sucks or something? Get over it... they all do!

    A. Havn't threatened you in any form. And please, my "power" is by far the LEAST used among my fellow mods.:rolleyes:

    B. It is perfectly acceptable to delete threads created in error, as you've already said these were. I am under no obligation as a Mod to correct your inabillity to use the forum correctly. Deleted is perfectly acceptable, you can always recreate it, correctly, yourself.

    C. Could care less about Thompson particularly. He busted it would seem, so be it. Life goes on. I'm sure I'll find another candidate, I have plenty of time before the General Election.

    What I do [B][U]not[/U][/B] appreciate is you asking for a favor, then complaining it wasn't done "right", making accusations, then calling me a liar. If you don't get why that would piss me off, so be it.

    And once again, the Dictionary definies a member of the Democratic party as a Democrat. G.W. Bush does not define my terms, or my language. If you find "Democrat" offensive, I suggest you contact the various Dictionary companies to add that to their definitions. Till then, I will continue to use the term when discussing any individual members of the Democratic party.

    LOL.

    WOW


    So this is what people get bent out of shape about now? Vote for Change a year ago really worked out, because now we have righteous causes like this to fight against grammar mispronunciations. Go Democrats! I mean, "Members of the Democratic Party." Political Correctness run wild, much?

    Tanginius, anyone else would be [B]embarrassed[/B] to so readily accept and blindly agree with something so irrelevant and bizarre as this. You really need a get a grip on more than a few things in life.

    Go Democrats! is fine... "You are a Democrat" is fine...

    when you say "Democrat Party" or "Democrat Candidate", it's a known thing in the political junkie world that it is a slur/insult/joke. I just think it's stupid and it bothers me that GOPers think that it is so clever and funny to, like Bush when he does it, pretend like they don't know and didn't mean it like that
