You Keep Using That Word...
Liberals and the mainstream media keep using the term "teabagger" to describe people who participate in the Tea Party rallies. The most recent example is Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif) who used the term in a plea to the media to begin acting as thought police. This bugs a lot of members of the Tea Party but personally I find it kind of amusing. You see, I don't think they've really thought things through.
Just what is a "teabagger?" The term originated as slang for a man who likes to lower his testicles into his partner's mouth. It is this definition that annoys people. The thing is, as someone who plays massively multiplayer online video games I know that the term has other connotations as well. Of course these days teabagging goes beyond humiliating video game opponents as anyone who fallen asleep at someone else's house only to wake up and find pictures of themselves asleep with a scrotum pressed to their face posted online can attest. And this is what I think of whenever I hear someone call me a teabagger.
You see, if I am a teabagger then who is the teabaggee? Who do I want to humiliate by dangling my testicles in their face? If you really want the answer look for me at a Tea Party. I'll be the guy with a sign dangling tea bags in the faces of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid. I really must thank the Left. Without them for inspiration I might never have figured what I want to put on a protest sign.
