Tax Guru – Ker$tetter Letter

Helping real people win the tax game.

What’s In A Name?

Posted by taxguru on July 23, 2003

The most common feedback to my FoxNews article seems to be regarding the nickname I often use for the political party with a JackAss as its mascot. Many people are lobbying for other variations of the name, rather than the DemonRat term I have been using for the past several months.

Popular alternatives offered include: Dems, Dims, and Dumbocrats. I’m not sure about that last one, considering the association with Dumbo the elephant and the GOP’s mascot. The most impassioned case sent to me was the following, which I hope the sender doesn’t mind my quoting verbatim.

I must respectfully disagree with your use of DemonRat in your recent blog posted on I believe the term you are looking for in this case, referring to Wesley Clark, is DemonCrap. This is important! DemonCrap is incapable of effecting change in and of itself. It only serves as fertilizer for the seeds of bad ideas. DemonCrap is generally understood in academic circles to be the intestinal by-product left behind by the larger DemonRats like Terry McAuliffe or Hill and Billary Clinton. However, DemonCrap may also be used to refer to the stool of the lesser known, better disguised GreenRat, or even the once-thought extinct RedRat. I must ask that in the future you be more careful to make this distinction.
