    it is the name of the party.

    That alone seems to justify the use of the words.

      Take for example the Liberal Democrats in England, who are not necessarily liberal, the Liberal Party in Australia who is conservative, the People's Party in Austria and in India who are conservative, the Institutional Revolutionary Party in Mexico who aren't revolutionary.

      We can't assume that their name signifies their politics, we should as informed political activists and news junkies, learn what these parties are really about and their policy positions. The most wretched thing about the US media is its labeling and horse racing and ignoring of policy positions and their practical details, implications and results. This is why it really raises my ire, especially since it's very obvious the US media doesn't like any challenge to neoliberal economics including in Greece. Why? It might spread, like Occupy did only moreso.

      24/7, it's all 'Great news for Romney!'
