So... Yellow Dog Democrat?

In case you are unfamiliar with the term:

Yellow Dog Democrats was a political term applied to voters in the Southern United States who voted solely for candidates who represented the Democratic Party. The term originated in the late 19th century. These voters would allegedly "vote for a yellow dog before they would vote for any Republican".

Not derogatory, unless you consider having a closed mind politically to be derogatory.

It is even more mundane than that.

ANY report on communication with a foreign agent, i.e. minister, diplomat, government worker, is considered classified. Not like Keyhole, but still classified.

So if anything like "The Canadian Ambassador expressed his concern about the Keystone pipeline..." is born classified.
