Lead story on CNN's home page refers to "Democrat Party"
As of this writing, here's the lead story on http://cnn.com --

Mideast watches Midterms
Arab governments are looking for U.S. policy changes after the midterm elections. One thing they hope for is that a politically weakened President Bush would talk with Iran and Syria. But many Arab officials also question whether the Democrat Party has better answers to the region's problems.

Someone really needs to put an end to this crap. I'd post a screenshot, but I can't do that where I am at the moment.

2. That one hit me as pretty blatant.
It even includes the phrase "Democrat Party" in a "some people say" statement.

3. Since they've been doing this for a while now...

I started calling them what they hate the most....Neo-cons. As in, "The Neo-Con party"....or, "so you're a registered Neo-Con?".

They always correct me. I tell them, "What's the difference...Republican...Neo-con".

The reply is ALWAYS, "I'm NOT a Neo-con!".

"Do you support this administration?", I ask.

"Of course I do.".


"Then your not a Republican. You may be REGISTERED as a Republican. But you're a Neo-con."



If you use this argument....please take pictures with your camera phone...and post here on DU. Because the DESPISE it when they're called Neo-Cons.

4. Why do they hate us for our name?
CNN and the other M$M whores are really pulling out all the stops to help the BFEE steal another one.

It's Democratic Party CNN! Get in the game or go home!

5. There is an online form...
where you can correct the grammar/punctuation of any story online -- I just sent a nice little note about how surprised I was that their writer was unaware there was no such political party as "the Democrat Party." :)
