Republ-icks

I've not written in a while. To get back into the groove I'll hit upon language in politics.

It irks me that Republicans go around saying things like "the democrat party" or "the democrat {fill in the blank}" when of course it should be "the democratic party", and so on. Someone on the radio said it was to tie the "rat" ending to the democratic party. Hmmm....

It's certainly rude. If I tell you my name is Fred and you call me Ted repeatedly you're dissing me. So, since turnabout is fair play...

Why shouldn't Democrats go around calling it the Republic party? Notice the emphasis on ick?
