"Democrat Lobbyist" v. "Democratic Lobbyist": Tips for a New Tennesee Blogger

Posted By on Mon, Aug 23, 2010 at 5:21 PM

For the longest time, I spelled Murfreesboro "Murphreesboro." Until one day, another local blogger said, "Oh, ha ha, that's so funny." And I was all "what?" and she was all, "You're not doing that on purpose?" And I was all, "Oh, lord, I have been inadvertently dumbassing up the Internet and no one told me."

Years, people, for years I spelled it "Murphreesboro," and for years I guess people were just like, "Oh, that poor Betsy, she just doesn't know better." I still cringe a little.

I feel that way for the blogger at Lame Duck Lobbyists, which is a website I honestly cannot wait to see get going. You know someone, somewhere, knows who all is fucking whom on the Hill and I'm as prurient as the next person. Gossip away, anonymous blogger. Warn Republicans away from the Democratic tramps who will lead them ast...

Right, this brings me to my point. It's "Democratic." Writing "Democrat lobbyists" over and over makes you look like an idiot. See, here's the thing. It's two nouns in a row, like "lollipop guild." The lollipop guild is not a guild made up of lollipops; they are Munchkins devoted to the art of dancing with lollipops.

And you don't mean lobbyists who lobby Democrats, you mean lobbyists who are secretly Democrats. You need an adjective — Democratic.

Watch: "What are these Democrat lobbyists up to when they think you are not looking?" answers itself. They are lobbying Democrats.

"What are these Democratic lobbyists up to when they think you are not looking?" Ooo, that's a mystery in need of an anonymous blog to answer it!

And that would be you!

Good luck! And welcome to the neighborhood.
