Republicanistical Party

Love him or hate him, Barney Frank is a funny one. He slams a Republican who is trying to be clever;

Chris Matthews takes Darrell Issa to task on Hardball for using the term “Democrat Party”.

Matthews: Well, I think the Democratic Party calls itself the Democratic Party, not the Democrat Party. Do we have to do this every night? Why do people talk like this? Is this just fighting words to get the name wrong?

Issa: This isn’t intended to be fighting words.

Matthews: They call themselves the Democratic Party. Let’s just call people what they call themselves and stop the uh, the Mickey Mouse here. Save that for the stump-seriously.

Issa: Chris, Chris.

Matthews: Now let’s get to the issue here, seriously we’ve got a fiscal challenge. I want to go back to Congressman Frank and to some English here. Congressman Frank are you worried about the size of these WWII numbers here? Again, 1.75 trillion deficit this year. A spending level of almost 4 trillion. We’re almost running deficits as big as the revenue number we’re bringing in.

Frank: Well Chris let me first of all come to the defense of my colleague Mr. Issa and the Republicanistical Party that he represents, um and say that ah…

Issa: Thanks Barney.

Frank: You’re welcome there Darrell. The point is this. For him to say oh these are the Democrat’s deficits. I have never seen people disavow their own handiwork so quickly. And I knew that born again was an important strain, in in our society but born again deficit haters, it’s a new version.

Yes, EVERY time I hear the “democrat party” I think of the opposition as “the PUBES” (rePUBlicans)

Interloper, I’ll have to agree. When someone told me he was gay, I thought they were joking.

He comes across as a grumpy easterner who has been married to long.
