Another Pitiful Attempt to Coin a Term

Hey, kewl kids! Ever wondered how to respond to the tendency on the part of conservative activists to refer to the Democratic Party as "the Democrat Party," which passes for a clever put-down in their circles? Sure, we can point out that even President Bush, one of the chief abusers of this slur, had to distance himself from it, with his own version of not-really-self-deprecating humoresquesosity, in his first meeting with the new Congressional leadership. But you know what's even better? Start referring to the Republican Party as "the Publican Party." Yup, send 'em to their OEDs is what I say!

Here's hoping this is actually original, unlike my earlier attempts with "blogoramaville" and "the Blogocalypse."

[Update: As Suzan-Lori Parks might put it, fucking a.]

I've always thought of the GOP as the Repugnant party. Re-Pugs are mangy dogs by any other name.
