It's Hard to Talk When You're Teabagging

Figures I go on hiatus just as the word "teabagging" is permitted to be uttered on national television! Here is my boyfriend Anderson Cooper delivering it like no one can:

Can we please just acknowledge that this corporate-sponsored "movement" is complete nonsense? I mean, besides their complete lack of awareness of the original meaning of "teabagger," this whole thing is ridiculous. What are these people protesting precisely? As Paul Begala put it: "You want something to protest? How 'bout protesting how little we give back to our veterans? Or how 'bout protesting that the entire budget of the National Cancer Institute (where government researchers battle a disease that will strike half of all men and a third of all women) is 0.03 percent of what we gave the bandits at American International Group alone? Oh, but veterans benefits and cancer research might cost money. It might require -- dare I say it? -- paying taxes."

Welcome back from me too.

This has been fun. I've been watching Rachel Maddow and Ana Marie Cox try to keep from laughing every evening as they report this totally idiotic "grass roots movement."

Being around teabaggers really is a downer.

Welcome back!
