I just had a thought. It must be a spelling problem.
Back when things made sense, my teacher would bring focus on poor grammar or spelling with a red pencil circle around the mistake. If it was misspelled words, the circle would be followed in the margin with Aline and “-2sp”. Nobody wanted “-2sp”, ever. So, I think one of our political parties must be circled in red with “-2sp”. I will take care of the error in the future since “Democrat” should be corrected to “DUMBocrat”.
