It continually annoys me that Maureen Dowd calls President Obama “Barry.” I find that usage superficial, uncreative, and disrespectful.

In a similar spirit, though, I submit that progressives shouldn’t call Mitt Romney “Willard.” What say others?

Maureen Dowd is a twit, so that explains that. I'm not sure what excuse progs have for the "Willard" nonsense.
