Corruptican or Corrupticon

"Corruptican” and “corrupticon” both refer to a “corrupt” politician. A “corruptican” usually refers to a “corrupt Republican.” “Corrupticon” often refers to a “corrupt Republicon“ (Republican + con). Both terms have been infrequently used to refer to any politician, Republican or Democrat.

“Corruptican” has been cited in print since 2005 and “corrupticon” has been cited since 2006.

Again, the Dems do not always do the right thing. See that wasnt so hard. I disagree with them on things, but they are light years better than the Corrupticans.

Corrupticans

Answer: They’re all from the Nigerian story. They could all be from the “Duke” story. Corruption, Inc. Bringing corruption to you from around the world and around the block. Corrupticans. That’s what they are. Corrupticans.

Corrupticans, Part II
Yesterday, I gave a cranky overview on the Republican Party, a.k.a. the Corruptican Party and their new agenda of looting and stealing with both hands and feet for as long as they are in power. Today I want to defend the Corrupticans as they are only doing what they said they would do.

The big challenge for the Corrupticons now is to find a strong replacement HML who isn’t also under investigation. Slim pickings.

Poll question: Republicants, Corrupticons, or Blamicans which fits better
We all know that the Republican Conservative movement has morphed into something as vile as a disease or a rabid dog. We also know that the RNC is Satan’s workshop bringing the Devil’s work to the unwitting and ignorant. Some of us are positive they are an alien race trying to take over until the moment they control everything, they will make us their cattle.

So which is it, or do you have a better name for these bastits?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:

The response to the complaints about the Rezko ties, his decision to surround himself with known Corrupticons of the Illinois Combine, his campaign’s lethargic, dismissive reaction to the Che Guevara banners…

Corrupt Chris & the Dying Democrats
January 26th, 2010
The Democrats are dying in Washington…or are simply too weak to put up a fight. [Have they even come to realize their ways of doing this country’s business are corrupt, wrong and the voters simply don’t want it?] Leading the way is Corruptican Chris Dodd, the weasel who has represented the corporations… aahemm…. the “residents” of Connecticut for far, far too long.
