Make Up Your Mind, Wingnut: Is It "Democrat" or "Democratic"?
The teaser for this WorldNetDaily (run by Joseph Farah) story is "DeLay declares: "'I am innocent!': Probe by Democrat [sic] prosecutor leads to GOP leader's indictment." However, the story itself contains the following sentence: "DeLay, who denies committing any crime, contends the Democratic district attorney leading the probe, Ronnie Earle, has political motives."
I'm referring to the habit of wingnuts using the word "Democrat" as an adjective when they should be using the word "Democratic." While it's wrong to use "Democrat" as an adjective, is it too much to ask for a little consistency?
