I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you...

I'm reminded by today's (Mobile) Press-Register how annoying it is whenever Republican officials refer to their opponents as the "Democrat Party." It's just as annoying when the state Christian Coalition -- a purportedly nonpartisan entity -- does it.

I know the phrase is supposed to be some kind of pejorative, but instead it just comes across as really childish. It'd be nice to see people drop the dismissive insults like "moonbat" and "wingnut" and address issues on the merits. Then again, that probably would leave a lot of the punditocracy looking for new work.
