Olbermann and Teabagging: A Great Partnership

Over the last 10 months I have been involved with attending and tracking various Tea Party Protest events.  I have attended two events here in St. Louis and really had a good time at each one.  I took my kids to the first one in February in the shadow of the Gateway Arch.  I wanted them to be present at an event I saw as very pivotal to our Republic.  It was truly the beginning of a much larger movement that quickly spread throughout the country without the help of Republicans or any other high level party official.  The buzz term of the moment is that it was truly organic in nature.

When this movement started to gain steam and be noticed by the main stream media, those on the left decided to associate this movement with a sexual term called “Teabagging.”  For those of you who are not familiar with the true origins of this term, I’m not going to describe the act here on this blog or provide a link – google it if you choose.

Mr. Olbermann was one of the first to coin this term and it actually caught on (I assume it is because of the outrage from the Tea Party Protesters (the preferred term) rather than the paltry viewers he receives each night.)  Now it seems that the this term has been chosen by the Oxford University Press selecting it  as second most popular “word of the year.”  Although Keith was instrumental in creating the buzz on this one, he is now deflecting the blame, if you will, to those in the protest movement.  If he actually cared to do a little study on the origins of the group name it had to do with the parallels to the Boston Tea Party and the taxes that were imposed on the citizens by a governmental power.   Evidently he had to wait until the Oxford University Press defined it for him.  This is what happens when we have a fundamental disregard or blatant ignorance of history.

Keith, you are a blithering idiot of colossal proportions.  You are the one that had these perverted thoughts of “teabagging” and I for one would like to hear you actually own up to it instead of alluding that you simply had some hand it exposing the term.  The fact that it has caught on with the public and some are using the term to describe themselves has more to do with the evolution of the word by your doing.  

My only bone to pick with this movement is why it took so long to get started.

Of course, this is just my opinion.
