I'm not clamping down on every possible mis-spelling that could get someone's panties into a wad. Democrap, Republicrat, whatever, I think it doesn't help you make your point, but I'm not making it a rule. The rule is very narrow, as far as people's names, and a certain basic amount of respect to the person as a human being, even if you are attacking them as a candidate or for their ideas.
Power corrupts. Absolute power is really, really, cool.
