If you're going to use a slur, shouldn't you understand the origins of it first?
Strange because when I Google it, the first ten links claim it is an oral sex act, with no mention of homosexuality. You must know way more about it than everyone else. And, of course there's this...

Feb. 27, 2009
At the first anti-stimulus "New American Tea Party" rally in Washington D.C., a protestor carries a sign reading "Tea Bag the Liberal Dems before they Tea Bag You!!" The Washington Independent's David Weigel calls it "the best sign I saw."

March 2
Americans for Prosperity, an anti-tax group, is one of the first Tea Party organizations to advocate sending tea bags to elected officials to protest the stimulus package. Several other lobby groups follow suit.

April 1
Several Tea Party protest sites encourage readers to "Tea bag the fools in DC." Jay Nordlinger at National Review Online later admits: "Conservatives started [using the term]... but others ran and ran with it."

April 9
Rachel Maddow is the first to mock the Tea Party's use of the phrase on her left-leaning MSNBC show. "Even Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina is getting in on the hot tea-bagging action," she says, stifling laughter.(Watch Rachel Maddow joke about the "tea baggers")

April 13
David Shuster, filling in for liberal commentator Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, also makes fun of the phrase. "While the parties are officially toothless, the tea-baggers are full-throated about their goals," he says. Jeff Poor at the Business and Media Insitute says that the MSNBC comments are "lost in juvenile criticism and ignoring the reason there is discontent from the conservative base"

April 14
Anderson Cooper, on his avowedly non-partisan CNN show, makes a similar crack, but later back-pedals, calling his remark a "stupid, silly, one-line aside" that was not meant to "disparage legitimate protests."

September 10
Badges with the message "Proud to be a Tea Bagger" are still on sale at Tea Party events, according to an article written later in the year.

November 10
A report in The New York Times claims the President called Tea Partiers "the teabag, anti-government people" prompting the blog Redstate to respond: "Sexual innuendo is inappropriate in political discourse. The Left and their media tools need a soap bar sandwich to clean up their act."

December 7
In an article for National Review Online, Jay Nordlinger notes that the word is being used so regularly, it is beginning to lose its pejorative association. "'Tory' and 'Whig' were put-downs when they originated," he notes, and "'Yankee Doodle' was none too nice." However, he suggests conservatives should continue to oppose the "lowdown term."

April 14, 2010
Prominent conservative Andrew Breitbart posts a video on the site Big Government in an attempt to reclaim the term. "I'm Proud to be a Tea Bagger" currently has over 90,000 views.

May 4
In his book, Alter quotes Obama saying that GOP opposition to the stimulus package "helped to create the tea-baggers." Grover Norquist, president of the Americans for Tax Reform group, compares it to the pejorative use of the N-word.

Actually, Teddy is one of the more conservative democraps....Comparable to the "Kennedy democraps" of fifty years ago. In the upper level party politics of this century, democrap = socialism on a fast track, while republican = creeping socialism. Like being given the choice of castration or a root canal without anesthetic for either.
With your focus on coming up with a hilariously derogatory play on words to use in lieu of "Democrats," it's understandable that your overtaxed mind forgot to complete the full complement of political factions properly by attributing the Republican tea partier parasites with blatant anarchy, being like getting all limbs amputated with toxic IVs and noxious fumes rather than anesthesia. Sadly, Michelle Bachmann may be the smartest and sanest of the bunch. But then again, there is so much competition for that top spot.

A pillar of Conservatism announced how in line commie Vlad Putin was with your cause. Anyone can Google Timothy McVeigh and instantly see numerous quotes from the child killing terrorist that read like a play book for the Tea Party. Could you possibly be any more irrelevant? You're done and too stupid to realize it.(Also see "The South will rise again!")
I have insurance through my job and it hasn't gone up a cent. Like most of the entire hard working, tax paying nation you guys like to call commies. You are just a scared little Tea Bagger living in an email corporate provided and paranoid world of fake scandals and desperate chicken little gun hoarder tactics. Man, I hope you guys get to see Hillary Clinton as president for 8 years. Oh, and...UDintEARNThat little Gimme Gimme Trust Fund Baby. It's why you guys sound so stupid when you cry about poor people taking all your stuff.
You have no clue what the hell you're talking about. And of course your health insurance hasnt gone up yet. Just wait till the next contract comes up and you union piggies will be squealing like stuck hogs. Youll be on the business end of a scandal at that point. You'd have to have a union job to be able to dickaround on topix all day by the way.

By "took it there", do you mean telling you the meaning of the slur you've been throwing around?

If you knew what it meant beforehand, just have the balls (pardon the pun) to admit it. But if you were stupidly mimicking what you hear from other left-wing freaks ... well ... carry on as normal.

Nope, office manager job for me. I'm trying to be scared about all that health care stuff those corporations told you to fear, but considering your camp's batting average on predictions, I think I'll hold off on the whole paranoid gun show conspiracy theories gig. Not that FEMA death camps wasn't a good laugh for every thinking person in the country.

Hey, you left out one of the links you provided. I can't imagine why you would forget to include it. Just like how you skipped over the top 20 search results when one Googles the commonly used political term "Tea Bagger". Hang it up, you conniving has been. Your little ship was sunk back when you were agreeing with your own posts. It's no wonder crackpot kooks like you and the rest of your corporate fetch boy crew are watching the little Fox "News" bubble you live in getting smaller by the day. Your fake religious values? 10% drop in Christianity. Your views on climate or science? Completely void of any validity and laughed at and dismissed by the overwhelming majority of the scientific community. A wacky bunch of oil lobby trained, trust fund baby poodles who are too stupid to realize the wealthy, 1%, corporate agenda they follow, doesn't include them, and too greedy to care about anyone other than their free loading, tax dodging selves.

I'm sure when you were a choir boy in church, you learned that the oral sex act of tea bagging (Also see common term for Tea Party member), was strictly between a lad and his preacher, but according to the first several links that come up when you Google it, it makes no mention of the act being between two men. If the many people from Chillicothe, who completely agree with you and live in your head, had been on this thread for more that a month or so, you would have seen how out of touch I had already called the Tea Party being, for proudly calling themselves Tea Baggers. It's really not a matter of whether I knew what the term meant. It's much more about a little worm who tried to make something out of me using the common term of Tea Party members being called Tea Baggers. Your little games just don't have what it takes to roll with the big dogs. Get it right, lil' commie Putin fan.

I guess what I'm trying to say is you gargle nutsacks for expired car wash coupons...or what you like to call "Carrying on as normal". The ignorant, racist, fascist agenda of people holding signs that say "Keep your government hands off my Medicare" is what makes you a Tea Bagger. That whole nutsack gargling thing you do is just a hobby. In my opinion, that is.

Actually, I never heard that teabagging was done to boys by preachers. Is this one of your pope fantasies?

Rachel MadCow had a segment on her show about the origin of the term, which I provided the link to. Not sure why you're insisting that "teabagger" isn't gay slang, or that it's some obscure meaning.

From WordIQ.com :
"Gay slang (sometimes gayspeak) refers to slang used predominantly among gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgenders."
http://www.wordiq.com/definition/Gay_slang#T

"Tearoom: A public lavatory where men (including men who do not identify as gay) meet for sex."

"Teabagging: Usually done by male go-go boys to club patrons, where the dancer will place his scrotum on the forehead of the bar patron."

That explains why only certain groups knew what "teabagger" meant when some Tea Party members naively called themselves that.
Your little games just don't have what it takes to roll with the big dogs. Get it right, lil' commie Putin fan.
Haha! You go around using a slur you don't understand, then can't even research it adequately once it's explained to you. Go back to your pope fantasies, drone.

"Mica Rosenberg reports at Reuters that major oil companies including Chevron, Exxon, ConocoPhillips, Phillips 66, and Sunoco were paid twice for dealing with leaks from underground fuel storage tanks once from government funds and again, secretly, from insurance companies. Court documents show many of the cases and settlement agreements follow a similar pattern, accusing the oil companies of 'double-dipping' by collecting both special state funds and insurance money for the same tank cleanups. Some states say any insurance payouts should have gone to them since they covered the cost of the work.'It appears this was a really common practice and it's very disconcerting,' says Colorado Attorney General John Suthers.'Basically the companies were defrauding the state.' Approximately 40 states and the District of Columbia have special funds to cover the costs of removing and replacing the old tanks, excavating tainted dirt and pumping out dirty groundwater. Since 1988, there have been more than half a million leaky tanks reported across the country. Nearly 80,000 spills still are waiting to be cleaned up.
