It's true, I don't usually do the politics thing here.

But this youtube clip of MSNBC's David Schuster seems only mildly snarky (tax rates only 10% less than under Reagan, the Fox News clip of the Million Man March) UNLESS you are already familiar with the gamer-slang use of the word teabagging.

Then it is f'ing hilarious.

Whoa.

I know the gamer slang, but it's derived from, well, even more graphic slang, which implies . . . greater, um, involvement . . . and Schuster alludes to every little nuance of that in the clip! I keep sending Republicans over to the Urban Dictionary to understand my barely-suppressed hilarity over the whole thing. ::urk::

I don't know the gamer slang version, just the sex term, but OMG, that clip is worthy of The Daily Show.

In Halo(?), people do a little "victory dance" over their fallen opponents' faces. . . so it's pretty much a straight port of the sex term, but without the same level of, um, detail.

I have not seen anything on conventional television that... naughty since that one long-form Burger King commercial that I'm still amazed they got away with.

Call me a naive non-gamer. I heard enough comments to know there was some other meaning, but your post was enough to get me over to Urban Dictionary. You're right-- hilarious! In a very juvenile way, of course!

Wahahahahaha!

Now that I can breathe again...

What does it say about me that I was only familiar with the worst possible application of the term? I wasn't aware that gamers used it, too, but then there's very little opportunity for such things in Animal Crossing.

Good god... and to think he was able to plow through that with a straight face. ... I can't wait to hear what Jon Stewart does with it. Thanks Alice. I must say that this would not have come across the transom window without your help. Really quite amazing.
