My friend, Mochi, over at published 10 reasons for "Voting Republican" on November 7 (October 10 post). I asked him if I he would mind doing one for Democrats and he said it was ok, so here is a bit of a spoof on what he wrote (To understand some of these you may need to reference his article): TOP 10 REASONS TO VOTE DEMOCRAT: (1)You are a minority or consider yourself one. (2)You have to believe that Democrats will fix the problem and aren't part of it. (3)You believe that raising taxes is good but raising gas prices is bad. (4)You have to believe that Democrats REALLY mean what they say about the environment. (5)You think unborn eagle chicks deserve more protection than unborn humans chicks. (6)You are a member of the NAACP, NOW, ACLU or DESSERT (Dave Edwards's Save the Spotted Egret Research Team--Grant expiration date: 2022) (7)You DID approve of the Iraq war before you DIDN'T but really have no idea why you DID or DIDN'T to begin with but think you DO. (8)You think that political scandals are only scandalous when Republicans are involved. (9)You approve of pork barrel spending. (10)You don't know who Gerry Studds is.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
