What's the matter they didn't want to go all the way back to Andrew Jackson's illegitimate marriage to his wife in 1792?

I know this is going to sound petty and/or conspiratorial, but the right-wing has made an effort to divorce the positive feelings people have about the democratic process from the Democratic party by using the noun "Democrat" as an adjective (e.g. "The search for Democrat page scandals" or "Top 10 Democrat Sex Scandals in Congress")

The word Democrat is a noun. Is, was, and as long as Frank Luntz and his ilk do not control Merriam-Webster, always will be a noun. When an adjective is needed, the word is "Democratic".
