From Ann Coulter, who slams the MSM’s derision of the Tea Parties as “tea bagging”:
On MSNBC, hosts Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow have been tittering over the similarity of the name “tea parties” to an obscure homosexual sexual practice known as “tea bagging.” Night after night, they sneer at Republicans for being so stupid as to call their rallies “tea bagging.”
Every host on Air America and every unbathed, basement-dwelling loser on the left wing blogosphere has spent the last week making jokes about tea bagging, a practice they show a surprising degree of familiarity with.
Except no one is calling the tea parties “tea bagging” — except Olbermann and Maddow. Republicans call them “tea parties.”
But if the Republicans were calling them “tea-bagging parties,” the MSNBC hosts would have a fantastically hilarious segment for viewers in San Francisco and the West Village and not anyplace else in the rest of the country.
On the other hand, they’re not called “tea-bagging parties.” (That, of course refers to the cocktail hour at Barney Frank’s condo in Georgetown.)
