    Does the political definition of a "Tea Bagger" have to do with the sexual definition?

    Here are some definitions from Google.

    When I use the phrase "Tea Bagger," I do not mean an insult with the sexual definition, I am referring to the political definition. My words are and have been political banter, not a personal, disgusting sexual insult.

    I doubt the intent matters much anymore. I think they've mostly become immune to perceived insults, and some even gain more strength and determination.

    I have been having private communication with a USMB member who is very upset with the phrase "Tea Bagger," and takes it from the sexual definition as a grave insult. I can see his point. This is why this thread to hopefully remove the sexual insult, and make it clear that my statements about Tea Baggers is purely political disagreement. Based on the links provided the term "Tea Bagger" is in mainstream term used by the media. To my knowledge no other name has been provided by this political group to describe themselves.

    Not immune to it, its a matter of some people thinking they will mainstream insults as a way to diminish protestors.

    In short, not going to happen.

    Anyone that uses the term to describe protestors best be prepared to recieve as much asbuse hurled back as them as I can muster, and I muster quite a bit.

    Be civil or go fuck yourself.

    Your choice.

    If you use the word "Teabagger," you enjoy having a man's sack inserted into your mouth.

    Bill Maher--on HBO made it very clear what he meant by the use of Teabagger--a sexual reference to one tieing bags to testicles. Maher uses Teabagger to all tea partiers as an insult. He continues to do so today.

    And every time he does the Tea Party membership sky-rockets.

    I thought it had something to do with one tieing tea bags on their testicles? Crap--liberals like Bill Maher at HBO use it against us so often--that it's hard to tell what it's about--but I am certain it's BAD. He always gets a laugh from his audiance when he says it.
