I'm much more familiar with the pithier "Repugs" -- 405,000 ghits in the plural, 270,000 in the singular.

Pigs and Battleships:
"It's not that I don't care much about ideology -- I would strongly prefer a Clintonian-type pro-free trade moderate -- but there are no issues I care about more deeply than preventing the Repugs from fucking up the country for another four/eight years."
