"Democrat Party" silliness

Reply to: insert clever s.logan here: None of your Gosh Darn, business:

"One thing I've wondered is why everyone refers to the Democrat party as the 'democratic' party. In this video, Jason Mattera refers to the 'Democrat' Party, and Karl Frisch instantly tries to 'correct' him: 'Democrat-ic party'. So now I know that it is a concerted effort on the part of the Democrats to be called 'democrat-ic'. But then!! Jason Mattera instantly fires back with 'no, Democrat Party. There's -nothing- democrat-ic about them'. Go Jason!!"

Actual history tells the Democrat(ic) Party story a bit differently, Jason.

As far as I'm concerned it makes the folks who do it look plum ignorant, but a good number of you folks in the Republic Party seem to've all gotten the same silly memo on this mispronunciation, so I don't expect it'll be ending any time soon...
