Reagan Democrats

I have read this phrase at least a half dozen times in major news organs in the last week or so.

Am I the only person who feels that a Reagan Democrat is no Democrat, but a Republican? Or at the very least, an independent voter who really shouldn't bother registering as Democrat when they know that they lean far more to the right than the party they espouse? Why DO they register Democrat? To try and monkeywrench the works in the primaries?

My cousin Lori is a "Gore Republican". She registered Republican for the sole purpose of trying to keep Bush from getting his party's nomination. And even I, a diehard liberal democrat who despises Bush, thinks that that was flat out wrong. Cast your vote against the opponent in November, for crying out loud.

Reagan Democrat my fat behind.
