Demwit (Democrat + dimwit)

“Demwit” (Democrat + dimwit) is a political epithet that has been cited in print since at least October 1998. The term has been capitalized as “Demwit” (after “Democrat”) and has also been written as the lower-case “demwit” (after “dimwit”).
Urban Dictionary
“Democrat” merged with “dim wit”; a dim-witted member of the American Democratic Party.
Demwits want governments to stop the oil pipelines yet fix the economy at the same time. That’s as demwitted as wanting to feed your cat with only vegetables.

Came back with a letter saying that the “big brains here debate issues that ultimately have no end” and called some of the PI’s “demwits” .

I remember some time ago writing a response to Ray Ubinger (I think; no offense if it was someone else, Ray) saying that if the Libertarians ever got into power they would quickly become as corrupt as the Demwits and the Retardicans.

Jeffords voted with the Demwits 80% of the time.  If he had courage, he would have become another Demwit.  The fact that he chose to become an Independent, proves he’s a coward.
