Teabag a friend tomorrow
Most of you have heard about the Tea Parties scheduled for tomorrow which have been organized by conservative groups to protest the alleged tax increases by Barack Obama.
Not only is the "grass roots" movement a charade, as Paul Krugman explained this weekend, the use of the term "teabagging" by the group's organizers turns out to be a very funny miscalculation.
According to the web's UrbanDictionary the definition of "teabag" is: Dipping your testicles into the open mouth of another person. Kind of like dipping a tea bag in and out of a cup of water.
Locally, the biggest teabagging advocate is WTIC-AM radio host Jim Vicevich. Open wide Jim.
