Resluglican or Reslug (Republican + slug)

"Resluglican” or “Reslug” (Republican + slug) is an unflattering nickname for Republicans, comparing them to slugs (lazy “sluggards” or the gastropods). The nickname “Resluglican"/"Reslug" has been cited in print since at least July 2004.

Reslugs just can’t face the absolute fact that their backwards party is dying out fast and that most Americans are progressives, as proven in the last election.

Reslugs ruin the country over the last eight years and now think they have a better plan. Just more of the same. Reslugs are just Obstructionists and bedwetting, cry babies.
