Fox News MSNBC
I was watching MSNBC this afternoon and on the news ticker of one of the shows (I think it was Hardball) it was written that a certain percentage of Americans wanted a "Democrat-controlled [sic] Congress." The use of the word "Democrat" as an adjective (e.g., Democrat Party) used to be an indicator that the writer or speaker is an unapologetic wing-nut, a wing-nut posing as a nonpartisan observer, or a Fox News Democrat like Tammy Bruce (who uses the phrase "Democrat Party" here).
What has happened in recent years is that the so-called liberal media has appropriated the use of "Democrat" as an adjective (e.g., click here and here) so what I watched was not surprising.
When I was tuned into MSNBC, I also saw this exchange; it looks like Hardball strikes out once again.
UPDATE: At least MSNBC can bring itself to name the Democratic Party--even if they use a pejorative, unlike the fair and balanced channel--which can't bring itself to name the party with a lead in the polls. I guess that should count for something.
