Admit it or not, but I know why the left is obsessed with the phrase "teabagger". It's slowly morphing into the "n-word" for white people. Lefties view it as insulting to white people. The lefties (yes, including white-guilt stricken white lefties) have tried for decades to find an equivalent word for white people that is as bad as the dreaded "n-word". Honkey, redneck, cracker, neocon, republican, bush lover, hick, etc, have all failed. Why? Well, most conservatives are too busy with family, working hard, being happy, etc, to let a stupid word offend us.
But some tea party folks are bothered by it. Why I don't know. Maybe annoyed because the left enjoys saying it so much, who knows. But the left is obsessed with it because they think "FINALLY" they have a word that they can throw that stings as much as the "n-word".
I just can't get enough of watching stunned libs faces after each small triumph the tea party has, slowly but surely, in our right-swinging political atmosphere. Most recently with Nikki Haley in SC.
Meanwhile, I'm wondering where the NAACP and the left is crying racism that a black "little guy" from SC is being intimidated by the political powers to give up his miracle win in senate primary. If he had an "R" instead of a "D" next to his name, the cries of racism would echoe past Iraq and India.
