Thickwitted Archliberal Sub-Imbecile Clarence Page: The "Teabaggers" Asked to Be Called That And Now They're Sorry They Did

Um, no, the "tea baggers" didn't want to be called anything, but seemed to prefer "Tea Partiers" to the extent they had a preference.

Some did send tea bags to Congressmen. That doesn't evince a desire to be called a "tea bagger," any more than a gay man is asking to be called a "butt pirate" if he happens to use piratical words like "outlaw."

Nor did, say, peace activists demand to be called "peace fairies" or anything like that. Sure, you can call them that. (The media won't.) You can call them such, but you can hardly claim as your defense, "B-b-but they insisted I call them that!"

Um, sure.

Ann Coulter has noted this again and again: Tea Partiers did not call themselves "tea baggers," but the liberal media kept insisting they did, to 1) justify their own use of the slur (which was entirely made up by themselves) and 2) to make them appear dumb and naive and unsophisticated.

It was never, ever true. They just repeat it endlessly to justify using a sort of homophobic slur about deviant sex. The sort of slur they would scream about were it applied to any of their favored ideological/identity-politics groups.

And as a lot of people have noted -- fine, okay, we're the "teabaggers;" so whom does that make the teabagees? 'Tis better to give a teabag than to receive one. Indeed, half of the appeal of the computer game HALO seems built upon this premise. The whole point of killing an opponent is to gang-teabag his body afterwards (light silly videogame teabagging warning).

Dip 'Em? Why yes, thank you for asking.


Thanks to Mike in BA that it is true that some of us enjoy some dipping, so maybe we should just embrace it, and say, "You betcha, we wanna dip our balls in your misery."
