He Misunpronounced It

Democrats are still complaining about the State of the Union address:

In his speech last Wednesday, Bush declared to a joint session of the U.S. Congress that "I congratulate the Democrat majority." Some Democrats were incensed he did not say "Democratic." The party's proper name is the Democratic Party.

Republicans for years have dropped the last two letters of the name as a slight to the party. Bush's prepared text of his speech had the proper pronunciation, but when he delivered it he made the mistake.

Snow said Bush meant no slight.

You can't say "Democratic" without saying "ick."
