Teabagging, scrotums & penises, OH MY!

MSNBC's snickering over the term "teabagging" is juvenile and sophomoric and we're pretty sure unprecedented for a major media outlet that provides news and opinions to millions of homes around the world.

As you know, the term teabagging means a certain sexual practice in some circles of our society.

Well, the media, or at least MSNBC, this week wastes no opportunity to invoke the teabagging term, and double entendres relating to scrotums and penises and mouths and such, in reference to tomorrow's "tea party" protests against government spending.

It's kinda funny, for awhile, but then, I'm sorry, it's just too junior-high-ish for what's supposed to be coming forth from a major media outlet.

So, it's finally happened, I guess. I've turned into a middle-aged fuddy-duddy.

Crap.

Middle-age? You're a bit beyond that, Banjo.

Even this progressive knows that MSNBC is a "news outlet" in the same sense that FOX "news" is.


But...I didn't know that about teabagging! I guess you aren't that much of a fuddy-duddy.
