Rachel Maddow on conservative Teabagging

Oh my. 7 minutes of teabagging discussion on prime time. For the uninitiated, I wrote about this unfortunate topic yesterday:

You might have heard that conservatives are holding teabag parties across the country, and calling on their supporters to send teabags to Washington, to protest Obama’s stimulus spending. Well, as Andy Cobb points out in this  PG-17 video, the conservatives may have bitten off more than they can chew with their new, unfortunate, metaphor.

In a nutshell – okay, I swear that didn’t come out on purpose – the conservatives are calling on their followers to “teabag Obama.” Unfortunately for those organizing this rather silly protest, “teabagging” is a specific sex act. You can follow the link above, and watch the video, for the gory details.
