I looked myself up on the dictionary and they marked me as stupid
If you look up Republican in the dictionary, it's just after reptile and just before repugnant.Whowohhahahznauzha (Knee-slapping)!!
One of the last celebs to dust of this classic in public is Julia Roberts. To play William Safire for a sec, one might explain to Julia that words get their meanings from their own definition, not the surrounding words. But then her eyes would glaze over and smoke would come out of her ears as her brain ground to a halt like a '84 Yugo attempting to traverse a small incline.
But at the risk of stooping to her level, let's dust of the ole Websters and look up Democrat. It is immediately preceded by Demobilize v. - to discharge from military service and followed by Démodé a French word meaning no longer fashionable : out-of-date. That would be actual irony, which is something that Julia can have her publicist explain to her.
