What's a GOP?

Please don't mock me! ha. I have no idea what this means. Thanks!

Update:

this will probably get my question reported but oh well-- it should be "Grand Old Pr*cks!"

Thanks for answering all! :)

    GOP is an old term created in the 1800's for the Republican (red) party. It stands for "Grand Old Party". You are not alone in not knowing what it means. In fact, some news and media outlets stopped using the term (I forgot which ones of the top of my head) because many people do not know what GOP really means. Hope this helps.
