It's the "Democrat" Party

Rush Limbaugh is correct. The Democrat party--especially the D'RATS at DU--get very incensed when you call them the 'Democrat party' instead of the 'Democratic party'. However,
Rush is correct when he says they are only trying to do that to falsely assert some type of superiority over the Republicans by making it seem that they are more democratic--are even the very essence of democracy--and the rest of us, and the GOP, are not.

Your ACTIONS can be democratic, but you cannot BE democratic absent those actions. A person, or a political party, is not an action--it's a thing. Thus, you have Democrats and Republicans--and Democrat and Republican political parties. You do not have the Democratic party or the Republicanic/Republicanistic/Republicanist party.

Don't EVER refer to them as the 'Democratic' party again. They are only trying to make it seem as if WE are not acting democratically and they are--don't help them do that.

Exactly right....that's sort of how the blue states and red states suddenly switched. Remember, the Republicans used to be the Blue States? What happened? Red sounds too commie, or?

typical leftist can only imagine who managed that switch. Hint; it wasn't Republicans.

Yes, and I'm sure the MSM had their filthy fingers up in the middle of it helping them out all they could.

Out of respect, you ought to call them what they want to be called.

That's just it, John, I DON'T respect the Democrat party. I don't respect them at all.

Indeed, they are only weakly related to the original Democrat Party.

Want to confuse a moonbat? Ask him or her if she's a super delegate or just an ordinary delegate. Then apologize, you forgot that the average citizen can't be a super delegate in the Democrat Party.

Last count I recall, super delegates make up nearly half of all votes cast to nominate the Democrat presidential candidate.

Democracy? Or another case of a well-hidden plantation?

What's a 'super delegate'?

Once upon a time the "big boys in smoky back rooms" of the Democrat Party decided who ran and who didn't, who got the money and who sucked air. The riots in Chicago in 1968 sprang, to some extent, from the inability of candidates like Eugene McCarthy to get backing from the likes of Mayor Daley (one of the bigger big boys).

Those riots, in part, led to some "reform" in the Democrat Party in which the primaries (and caucuses) now play a much larger role.

But they couldn't quite let go of that older system so they created the "super delegate" - a Democrat elected to state or Federal office, or a high-level appointed Democrat, or officials of the Democrat National Committee (of which Howard Dean is now chair). Bill Clinton is a super delegate even though he now holds no office nor position within the Democrat Party. He gets super delegate status simply because he is the last elected Democrat president.

There are some other "super delegate" categories that are a little more mysterious.

While the concept was meant to be one-to-one (a Democrat super delegate got exactly one vote)the fact is there is a lot of proxy voting and it is still very possible for a nominee to win most of the primary and caucus votes and still not get the nomination because of the super delegate votes.

If any of this seems confusing, it's because it is. Getting a straight answer from the DNC on how the super delegate process works is nigh impossible for an outsider.
