Getting Tea Bagged by the Media

Meanwhile, back in the world of *fake* protests. . .

Check out this video from TalkingPointsMemo.com. They posted it because they want you to note that the Fox News Anchor basically admits to giving the Tea Bagging movement “P.R.” and “promotion.” But what I want you to notice is the absurdity of the Conservative talking head getting all “clutch the pearls” over the sexual innuendos surrounding “tea bagging,” and how that proves MSNBC is so biased against this noble protest.

Um. . . “Tea Bagging” has been an expression meaning lowering one’s genitalia into the mouth of a willing participant for well over fifteen years that I know of. It was you guys who decided to adopt the name, bonehead. Not our problem, just live with it.

Through the Drinking Glass

OK, after all this talk, I have a question: has everyone – media, protesters, everyone – forgotten that “tea bagging” is the process of dropping one’s scrotum into the mouth of a. . oh, let’s call them “a loved one?” Seriously, how can this be an acceptable term to use in the media?

The Republican Party is actually co-opting an anti-tax fever movement whose key phrase has a double entente which is sexual at minimum with vaguely homosexual overtones. And no one seems to want to talk about that. Insane.
