why do people who are scared of the tea party movement use a term that has such sexual conatation to describe the movement. Do you thing denigrating the tea party movement to a term that is known as a sex term really shows you have a any knowledge of the movement.
Ae you so scared of the movement that you ignore the principles of the movement only to reduse the discussion to s exual act?

I gues smy asnwer is yes you are

I am pretty sure (correct me if I'm wrong) but I had heard that it was the Tea Party folks themselves that started calling themselves that. Clearly they weren't aware of the sexual connotation.

oh I'm sure it wasn't an official...seems to me that it did come from the members themselves. It's a pretty obscure sexual term so I am quite sure there are many (especially on the religious right) who have no idea what it is...
I have neither the time nor the inclination to do any research but perhaps someone else does.

Oh by the way, I personally am not the least bit scared of the "movement"...althought it is a bit embarassing to the Republican side of things.

i have been to every tap party even i can get to, not once has an attendee or a speaker referred to themselves in that manner. And since the purpose of the movenment is lower taxes and controlled spending, I do not know why anyone woukd be scared

Just a gentle suggestion, could you type slower or edit your posts? The typos are not reflecting well on your "movement"

The GOP allows you to send a teabag to the President:

GOP.com: Tea Party

You can even pick which type of teabag!
