Here's something I wish Jerrold Nadler, or some other Democratic committee chair, would do. [View all]

It's the Democratic Party. Its members in Congress are Democratic congresswomen and congressmen.

They are not Democrat members. It's not the Democrat Party.

This practice of dropping the "-ic" suffix started in the 1990's as an explicit effort by some Republicans to belittle and demean their opponents.

This should be a sanctionable action. The chair should insist on proper terminology - it's also proper decorum - and stop it.
