    No.

    And I'd wager that way more than half those who vote Democrat don't know that "Democrat Party" is not the correct name of the party.

    The hypocracy of the Democrats offends me, naturally.

    Actually the bourgeoisie (or every party) tends to make me a tad nuts.

    That's probably because I see so many of their arrogant conceits and foibles in myself.

    Only a fool is offended when offense is not intended. And Only a bigger fool is offended when offense is intended.

    Democrat Party (phrase) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


    Democrat Party" is a political epithet used in the United States instead of "Democratic Party" when talking about the Democratic Party. The term has been principally used by conservative commentators and members of the Republican Party in party platforms, partisan speeches and press releases since the 1930s. The explicit goal is to dissociate the name of the rival party from the concept of democracy.

    Democratic Party members and non-partisan individuals have objected to this modification. New Yorker commentator Hendrik Hertzberg wrote:

    There’s no great mystery about the motives behind this deliberate misnaming. "Democrat Party" is a slur, or intended to be – a handy way to express contempt. Aesthetic judgments are subjective, of course, but "Democrat Party" is jarring verging on ugly. It fairly screams "rat."[1]
