    I believe in proper usage of the English language. If a legislature is controlled by Republicans, it's Republican-controlled - not "Republicans-controlled" or something - and if it's controlled by Democrats, it's Democrat-controlled - again, because it's ungrammatical for it to be called "Democrats-controlled."

    This has nothing to do with Republican misusage of "Democrat" as an adjective modifying "Party."

    And more importantly (if anything at all is important about this discussion), you won't win and won't get everyone to agree to a new usage of "Democratic-controlled." There is a time to give up on, as you say, splitting hairs.
