6. As an alernative

why don't we focus on more important things - like what the GOP stands for, instead of what they're called?

It's this kind of trivial non-issue that deflects attention away from what is truly important.

I don't mean to be dismissive - but seriously, using different words, phrases and terms accomplishes nothing. There are bigger fish to fry - and as long as the GOP is being cooked in their own grease, I really don't care what label they're wearing at the time.

20. "Grand Old Party" is an implicit stamp of legitimacy and approval.

Especially since the Ds do not have a similar self-serving nickname."

You've made my point for me. Since the Ds don't have a similar nickname, the phrase "GOP" should be dropped - meaning that if we DID have a 'similar nickname', all would be fair-and-balanced, and no longer of any import?

There are thousands of things that need addressing - calling Republicans the "GOP" is, IMHO, as far down on the list as possible.

36. Good points

And I agree. I am always calling them "wrong wingers" because "right wing" implies that they are somehow correct- even though everyone knows it is right vs left, not right vs wrong. But subliminally I think that all these things matter.

43. You're mistaken about the term 'global climate change'.

'Global warming' simply refers to the absorption of energy by an atmosphere, as a result of the presence of certain gases. Without this most fortunate phenomenon, life would not be possible on this planet.

It is a radical change to the global climate, resulting from runaway global warming, that threatens the existence of our species.

But temperature change itself isn't the most severe effect of changing climate. Changes to precipitation patterns and sea level are likely to have much greater human impact than the higher temperatures alone. For this reason, scientific research on climate change encompasses far more than surface temperature change. So "global climate change" is the more scientifically accurate term. Like the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, we've chosen to emphasize global climate change on this website, and not global warming.

(Sorry OP, didn't mean to 'threadjack'. I just feel compelled, sometimes, to correct the record on this issue.)

The so-called GOP does not deserve respect or gravitas.

13. I agree completely. The only time I use GOP is on Twitter because of 140 character limit.

Otherwise I usually call them RWNJs (right wing nut jobs). They certainly don't deserve the GOP label, it makes you think of the party of Lincoln, which they are pretty much the complete opposite of.

22. A fringe group that gets 60 million votes isn't so fringe, unfortunately.

The positions it takes are extreme and, sadly, getting more extreme. But labeling it a "fringe" group downplays, dangerously, the number of people that seem unbothered by those extreme views.

If this madness continues even the most naive will find it impossible to be unbothered by those extreme views. And then they will say, what?, how the F did this happen.

38. Are you Johnathan Swift? I didn't think so.

 

His work is in the public domain, but of more relevance, do you really believe that your juvenile post is in any way comparable to the brilliant satire that he wrote almost 300 years ago? Do you imagine that any court would waste it's time on this nonsense?


Here's another kick, maybe the additional attention will satisfy you.

30. It's 3 letters. Better for Twitter.

Now, if you could permanently associate those letters with some graphic bodily function, it might work. Otherwise it's just a silly waste of time, not to mention getting the whole concept backwards.

39. The Tbaggers agree with you

The Tea Party folk agree with you.

They have taken to calling it the GOPe, for "GOP elite". They think it is not conservative and pushes RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) to serve elitist interests. However, stupidly of course, the Ts align themselves with those same elite (billionaire) interests.

Until you come up with a widely accepted TLA or other short abbreviation, your suggestion won't get far. 'Widely accepted' in whatever circles count for you: DU of course is a start.

WOP? White Old Party.

FOP? Failed Old Party.

SLOP? Stupid Loser Old Party.

GLOP? Goofball Loser Old Party.

I just say Republican party. I've never seen what was so grand about them although there is an occasional good apple mixed in with the bad ones. But still I would not call them a grand party.
