Always trying to figure things out with the minimum of bullshit and the maximum of belligerence.

"Democrat" as an adjective

Nothing grates on my nerves quite like wingnuts using "Democrat" as an adjective.*

Which, of course, is why they do it.

But now the BBC has begun using this grammatical atrocity.

Does Fox News have mole in the BBC?

UPDATE: In response to my email, the BBC has corrected the page. How many grammar pedant points do I get for that?

*I accept the use of "Democrat" as an adverb, when modifying the verb "to vote," as in "Vote Democrat this November."
