That is your rebuttal? One person out of the tea party knew the slang so it's not a slur when people call the tea party "teabaggers"? That's just asinine. I guarantee those 75 year old ladies with the hats with tea bags hanging off them didn't know. I didn't know before all the tea party stuff came out.
