The "Democrat" Party

“It’s clear the Democrat Party had a good night,” Pres. Bush said.

They sure did and I helped. But why do they use this language? Do we say the Republic party? It should be Democratic party. Why in hell can't they say this correctly. Is it some sort of right-wing-speak?

A case in point: Democratic Party

I think because being democratic does not mean being a democrat. Everyone in America is pretty much democratic but not necessary Democrat.

Just like it wouldn't really make sense to call the Republican Party, Republic.

Yes but the Republic Party sounds equally out of place. That may well be their thinking on it though. By the way I lived in Spring, TX one winter and I was in Jerry Maquire. But not at the same time.
