The New Yorker: What party is Bush talking about?

The New Yorker: Hendrik Hertzberg discusses something that bugs me mightily--the right's use of Democrat Party instead of the proper Democratic Party--but now I realize I shouldn't let it, because that's exactly what they want: "What is the name of a certain political party in the United States—not the one which controls the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the federal government but the other one, which doesn’t? The question is a small one, to be sure: a minor irritation, a wee gnat compared to such red-clawed, sharp-toothed horrors as the health-care mess and the budget deficit, to say nothing of Iraq and Lebanon. But it has been around longer than any of them, and, annoyingly, it won’t go away."
