“Teabagging” Now Part Of The Official Mainstream Lexicon?

Reported by Priscilla - November 18, 2009 -

Fox fave Brent Bozell has his hairshirt in a wad over the use of the word “teabagging.” He whined about it with Megyn Kelly, last April, in a discussion of how not only was the evil, librul mainstream media not sufficiently covering the teabaggers; but they were using a term, to describe the protesters, that was just sooo “insulting.” Recently, he mewled about it on Fox&Friends when he asked Charles Blow, of the NY Times, if MSNBC and CNN should “apologize for all their teabagging jokes on their national news programs." As Blow said that that he needs to ask those networks, Bozell shouted, “That’s the coverage, that’s the coverage.” Poor Brent. He can take solace in the news that the term “teabaggers” was a runner up for the mainstream New Oxford Dictionary's word of the year. Their definition relates to the protesting aspect of the movement. Obviously, there’s another meaning hanging out there but Oxford doesn’t mention it. But while Brent was fulminating about the word, the teabaggers themselves celebrated it – and that’s the truthiness!
