Congressman says dealing with Obama like "Touching a Tar Baby....."
Oh man I am in tears here this is so funny. Seriously. What made this guy think Tar Baby was an acceptable term? Did everyone forget that was a pretty hardcore slur? Either way it makes for some pretty great Daily Show material.

Re: Congressman says dealing with Obama like "Touching a Tar Baby....."
This is from wikipedia:

The Tar-Baby is a doll made of tar and turpentine used to entrap Br'er Rabbit in the second of the Uncle Remus stories.

The more that Br'er Rabbit fights the Tar-Baby, the more entangled he becomes.

In modern usage, "tar baby" refers to any "sticky situation" that is only aggravated by additional contact.[1] The tar baby is a trap that should be avoided.

It also says this: "The Oxford English Dictionary lists "tar baby" as a derogatory term for a black or a Maori."

So what the teabagging congressman was saying was: "I don't like Obama because he is a negro, and that is why we in the teabagger party blame him for all the problems in the world"

Anything can be turned into a pejorative term, such as your use of the word "teabagging" to describe a Tea Party member.

I think this guy said Obama was ok because he was "light skinned and lacked a negro dialect"...so maybe he's ok?

Except teabagging didn't exist as a pejorative for the Tea Party members till they decided to adopt it for themselves not realizing the historical implications of the term. Much like Doug Lamborn did except black people didn't make up the term Tar Baby to describe themselves.

That is not only wrong, but it's completely retarded...D-baggers used the term to describe tea party members and most libs are clueless as to what it means.

The term "tea bagging" has been around a long time, and I think that we all know what the term refers to.

I do not know anyone that claims to be a "tea partier" that uses that term, themselves.

I have only heard people use that term as in the derogatory form.

That being said, if you are correct in your assertion that the "Tea Party" itself, had coined this term for themselves; my only response is:

The tea party had a little campaign to send tea bags to the white house. The website reteaparty.com even had a headline that said something to the effect of "Teabag the Whitehouse!" Hence the name "Tea Baggers" was born. It was an irony only reality can provide that led to this conflation of terms. Don't try to rewrite history just because it makes people look stupid.

Seriously there is a level of cognitive dissonance going on here that is well worth the 10$ a month price of admission. I am not saying that teabagger doesn't mean what it means. I am saying that these idiots set themselves up to be called that by way of grammar as in if you send a tea bag you can logically be called a "Tea Bagger".. As in a person who presents someone with bags of tea... occasionally on their forehead.
