Steve Schmidt criticizes the Hill for headline using "Democrat" Party instead of "Democratic" Party

The Hill used the headline:
"Longtime GOP strategist Steve Schmidt announces he's registering Democrat"

Steve objected:



"Democratic. It’s the Democratic Party. It’s the oldest in the world. This headline should read “registering Democratic”. It’s an important enough institution in this country that it is entitled to its’ proper name."

Welcome to the Democratic Party, Steve.

I'm willing to let bygones be bygones. And that is saying something after Sarah Palin.

But Steve is an asset.

When not intended to be used as an insult, it's used by the grammatically impaired.
