If the people who organized today’s faux-grassroots right-wing “teabag” events aren’t actually aware of the slang connotation of that term, one could almost forgive them for rallying behind former House Majority Leader Dick Armey.
And if they are, in fact, aware of the double-entendre in “teabagging,” then I give them props for having enough of a sense of humor to knowingly fall in line behind a Dick.
It’s just a shame that the teabagging movement holds so little appeal for the political Left. We could have thrown our own Dick at the issue: former New Hampshire congressman Dick Swett.
Because nothing becomes teabagging so much as the addition of liberal Dick Swett.
Okay, I’m done now.
