Repubs trying to “rebrand” Dems as socialists

Repubs trying to “rebrand” Dems as socialists
By Eric Black

Minnesota’s own Michele Bachmann has been working this gag for some years already, and she’s not the only one, but if Roger Simon’s RNC member source is right, the Repub National Committee will actually vote next week on a resolution that would “rebrand” the Democratic Party as the “Democrat Socialist Party.”

Under the great and glorious First Amendment, they have an absolute right to do this. And I’m sure it will do wonder’s for the GOP’s sinking ratings. But it does sort of open the door.

If the Democratic Party decided to retaliate by “rebranding” the name of  Repub Party, what should they rebrand it to?
