Actually, I don't recall saying "Democrat Party." I can't imagine doing
that but if Karl says I did .... well. For example, sel011.wav says, "For
U.S. Senate, Carl Menninger, Democrat." That's not the same as saying
"Democrat Party."

Like I said, feel free to re-record the wav files if you don't like them.
