Positive Reenforcement

Hey, check this out (emphasis added) in the Times:

“What matters is that in this campaign that we clarify the different points of view,” Mr. Bush said from the press secretary’s lectern in the White House conference center up the street from the Oval Office. “And there are a lot of people in the Democrat Party who believe that the best course of action is to leave Iraq before the job is done, period, and they’re wrong.”

In calling the opposition the “Democrat Party” Mr. Bush was repeating a truncated, incorrect version of the party’s name that some Democrats have called a slight, an assertion the White House dismissed as ridiculous.

Have you ever seen that before in our precious MSM? I don't think I have. Maybe if everyone agreed to write like that for a month or two the Republicans would have to knock that particular inane gimmick off.
