Repubican or Repube (Republican party nickname)

"Repubican” is a slang name for the Republican party, used by speakers who believe that the Republicans are as low as the pubic region of the body. The terms “Repubican” and ‘Repube” both date in print to at least 2000.

Urban Dictionary
Anyone who holds very traditional, moral, and christian views toward his own pubic hair.
Please, don’t touch my bathing suit area! I’m a Repubican.
by Sir Warner Roy Brumrick-Golddelle, Duke of Dinnerh Oct 29, 2003

Mispelling of REPUBLICAN. A cheap stab usually made by dimwits with minimal levels of literacy who allow the heavily biased media and Hollywood elite to dictate to them what they shoould think.
Sad, really.

Kind of like the Repubes stole Social Security, and being a “big-tent party.” After getting spanked by senior citizens in 1992 and 1996, Repubes are acting like they invented concern for SS, when we all know they feel it is a bloated, wasteful social program.  Now they’re claiming to be a “big tent” party despite a ‘96 convention that had a 3% minority showing.

What’s a “repube” or is that just another example of what you think passes as humor?  That might have made me giggle in grade school....now that I think of it.

All I know is this..the Repubes made their bed when they went after Bill Clinton..now they gotta lie in it..I still say Clintons indescretions were nothing compared to what the Repubes have been caught and accused of doing..They spent millions of bucks on the Whitewater fiasco to no avail..and Monica-gate was tacky but it didn’t endanger someones life, or funnel money to the DNC illegally..
