Doubtless the defense here will be that The One wasnt aware of the sexual connotation and therefore had no idea that the term offends tea partiers. Funny thing, though: Offhand, I cant recall a single instance of him saying teabaggers publicly. Not in speeches, not in interviews, not at town halls, not even at that fundraiser a few weeks ago when he goofed on protesters by saying they should be thanking him for cutting their taxes, i.e. for running up gigantic deficits. If he doesnt know the terms impolitic, how come he hasnt innocently used it on camera yet?
He knows. They all know.
In Jonathan Alters The Promise: President Obama, Year One, President Obama is quoted in an interview saying that the unanimous vote of House Republicans vote against the stimulus bills set the tenor for the whole year That helped to create the tea-baggers and empowered that whole wing of the Republican Party to where it now controls the agenda for the Republicans.
Tea Party activists loath the term tea baggers, which has emerged in liberal media outlets and elsewhere as a method of mocking the activists and their concerns.
I stopped changing the names of persons and organizations into something similar yet derogatory when I got promoted to second grade. I wanted to live up to my position at the time, I suppose.

Yea, in a work environment. I refer to the messiah by his given name or his job title. It would be nice if he showed the same respect to his bosses.
