The Most Childish Thing

On Shuster's show last night, Ari Fleischer attacked the president and Rahm Emanuel for being childish, and then proceeded to use the "Democrat Party" epithet.

Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff is acting childish, and so is everybody else in the Democrat Party who is picking this ridiculous fight.

What's more childish than deliberately mispronouncing the name of the opposition party, Ari? You might as well be calling the Democrats "poopy heads" or something. Nate Silver, meanwhile, conducted a quickie survey of far-right sites to calculate the prevalence of this ridiculousness.

Again, this shouldn't be a matter of Democrats being offended, though. This is about the Republicans being unserious.
