Democrat vs. Democratic

It is interesting to me that there are a number of "adults" who wish to be taken seriously, yet cannot pronounce the word "Democratic" when referring to the Democratic Party. It strikes me that this is the same crowd that can't pronounce "nuclear." They persist in pronouncing it NU-Q-ler.

Matthew Yglesias has a theory on this and, unfortunately, it rings true. "Democrat Party" is just another example of people reducing themselves to the tactics of a playground bully. Somehow this crowd wonders why the American people don't take them seriously anymore. Do they not get that no one liked the playground bully? We all grew up and either kicked his ass or ignored him.
