It's always seemed to me to be a simple case of analogy: a Republican is
member of the Republican Party, a a Libertarian is a member of the
Libertarian Party, a Communist is a member of the Communist Party, so a
Democrat must be a member of the Democrat Party.

     house, there is too little; some must be purchased. If there is
     chocolate in the house, there is too much; it must be consumed.
