Proud to Have Been Tea-Bagged
Washington Examiner: Sen. John Kerry: ‘Teabaggers’ are ‘revved up’
I’m amazed at how many Democratic politicians are using the word ‘teabag’ to fire up their constituents. Chuck Schumer proudly called Republican candidate Scott Brown a “far-right teabagger” earlier in the race, and now it appears Sen. Kerry is following suit.
“We also see how revved up the tea baggers are at the thought of hijacking health care reform and every chance we have at making progress in Washington.” warned Kerry this morning.
The vulgar term has become commonplace in the liberal blogosphere and television commentators, in spite of the raised eyebrows amongst conservatives. I think its odd, however, that ‘esteemed’ Northeastern senators are saying it with pride.
Because it was green tea flavored.
