    It's argued that there are sexist overtones to the “Mrs. Greenspan” thing, as it evokes the old-timey use of the Mrs. prefix with a man's name to refer to the man's wife (who, it is implied, has no other identity to speak of).

    Where there's a point to be made about her ties to the Bubblemeister (and thereby to Ayn Rand …), I'd say the snark value overrides. But I'm a little squeamish about always referring to her as Mrs. Greenspan.

    •  Ms. Ayn Rand ok as a substitute? (0+ / 0-)

      Anything that reminds folks that Alan Greenspan admitted he liked Ayn Rand and was still appointed to high office needs to be kept in the national conversation to educate people as to the damage done to this country by Ayn Rand and her followers.

      •  He didn't just LIKE her, (0+ / 0-)

        he was a personal friend …

        In any case, I think that's a bit of a stretch. (Maybe she's Mrs. Mr. Ayn Rand? The sexism sorta cancels out that way :-D )
