And Anderson knows teabagging!

I guess that sounded less offensive than saying, "It's hard to talk when you're being tea BAGGED," even though it's slightly less correct.

How do you think Anderson got that job? Will anyone believe he is not biased after that comment?

Chez said...

Biased toward what? Men's testicles?

I guess you would know since you worked "with" him. I think you know I meant biased in favor of a particular political agenda or party.

Anon obviously means biased towards the Pro-Speech-While-Testicle-Tapping Union.

It's hard to fathom the level of cultural ignorance we are seeing. I can see it from the Washington bubble and maybe the redneck south but, how is it that the news media is THIS inept?

Is their bubble just as thick?

Sometimes you just hit the balls right on the nose...I mean nail on the head.

Actually, I had another thought: Maybe they just WANT us to think they don't know what it means. (See ex-Senator Craig for details.)

"I guess that sounded less offensive than saying, "It's hard to talk when you're being tea BAGGED," even though it's slightly less correct."Ah, so teabagging is a transitive verb? I thought it was intransitive, sort of a shared activity.

Anyway, I think that Cooper's being bag-in-cheek.

Isn't "Subtextual" long hand for "sexting" ?
