11. Works for me, but
to be honest, I never really understood why dropping the "ic" from "Democratic" was interpreted as being deprecative. I guess I just always assumed they were too stupid to get it right. It never occurred to me until the whole flap came up that it was supposed to be some kind of a slur. Even now, I still don't get it. I must say though that as slurs go, "RepubliCon" is good. I like it.
