36. Sounds like you accept "Democrat" as a perjorative.

Gee, what could be wrong with that? You're hardly the only one. But imo, it's downright fucking stupid to choose to be obligingly offended by peurile Republicans when the response should be a proud smile at what is always a great compliment compared to them.

As for "going mainstream," since this nya-nya silliness is, pathetically, still working for the Republicans, I say depowering it that way as soon as possible would be good. Our language is loaded with grammatical variations that don't offend, so I wouldn't worry about that.

As for Mohyeldin, who knows? Maybe that's what he's doing. Maybe he's channeling Lenny Bruce's technique of exposure therapy to treat people who are more angered and easily distracted by swear words than real evils.
