Demonrats and Republicunts
It' s what each group calls the other - and they expect the rest of us to listen to their twaddle.


I find it hard to listen to such juvenile tribalism, where political affiliation supposedly influences one's intelligence, morals, and quite possibly penis size.


My guess - if you' re a dickhead - adding a ( R ) or a ( D ) to your name doesn't make you less a dickhead. But, the other dickheads will send you money.

I'm a double atheist. I don't believe in your god or your politician.

According to me and the DMV, I'm (I).

Yeah, I know it looks like a pussy when I type it out.

How curious that tribalism should sneak into your own assessments, if you think all Republicans or Democrats use such language. I would assume it's a very small minority of each party.

I think what you should be lamenting is that this kind of language has become too common, not that the parties are dominated by it.

But then he wouldn't be the cool one who gets to sit on the sideline and bitch about how awesome he is for not being a part of either tribe. Of course it doesn't dawn on him he must might be an "independent" dickhead.

He didn't say 'all', and you know it.

The words (he used) characterize each group, as that group.
He didn't have to say "all".

That's a lie, and you know it. People insert 'all' where no 'all' was said to distort the meaning of what was said.
