Now Hear This: Stand By for Terminology Change

For the foreseeable future, I plan to stop referring to the GOP as "the party of Hoover".

Calling the GOP the "party of Hoover" slanders Herbert Hoover. Hoover may have been an economic putz who did little more than wring his hands (and grease the skids) as the nation slid from the Crash of `29 into the Great Depression, but I have not seen anything that would imply that he was, in his soul, as viciously mean-spirited as the modern GOP.

So I will refer to them as "the party of the Confederacy" or the "Confederate Party" from here on out.[1]

That is all.

[1]Only because writing "the party of vicious sheet-wearing, pants-wetting, heartless, homophobic, pervy, xenophobic, know-nothing racists" would take too long to type.
