Why do some folks on the Left think calling Mitt Romney “Mittens” is an insult?

Who doesn’t love mittens?

They’re warm and cozy.

They’re associated with adorable little moppets.

And mothers have fond feelings about them.

I think someone needs to get back to the insulting-nicknames drawing board.

    Or maybe mittens also refers to an inanimate object of little substance that you casually toss aside when you’re done with them.

    Rather than being a direct “insult” like “libtards” or “Obummer” or “Odumbo” (none of which are either a good pun or even remotely clever in any way shape or form) “Mittens” hints that Romney is barely worth notice and when the election is over he’ll simply be brushed aside as the rest of the population moves on.

    It’s not so much a direct “insult” as it is a cutesy way of minimizing him and/or his view points.

    Elliot, you must not spend much time noticing the crazy hilarious nicknames used on right-wing sites.

    I disagree, Elliot. “Mittens” isn’t much of an insult. Debunked’s examples are much more insult-oriented. The fact they are more descriptive is irrelevant.

    C’mon, Elliot. I’ve called him mitt-for-brains. I’ve called the current occupant narcissus obamus, then there’s the slickster for evryones favorite frat boy. Have some fun with it..
