The Democrat/Democratic debate rolls on this week, thanks to President Bush’s use of “Democrat” as an adjective during the State of the Union. “I congratulate the Democrat majority,” he said, even though the prepared text said “Democratic” majority. In an interview with NPR this week, the president said the usage was an “oversight.”
So what’s all the fuss about? An article in The New Yorker offers some background about it all and mentions a copy editor’s efforts to put the “ic” back in.
UPDATE: Bush makes light of the situation as seen in this YouTube clip.
