On Thursday's Countdown, Keith Olbermann pointed out that even the National Review Online names the teabaggers themselves as the one who first referred to themselves that way:
Teabaggers are incensed, as we knew they would be, to learn that even the President Obama was calling them by their own moniker, in an upcoming book by Newsweek's Jonathan Alter, "The Promise: President Obama, Year One."
Don't ever forget that it was the teabaggers' themselves, however, along with their parent company, Fox "News," who coined the term "teabagger."
Jake Tapper Got into the middle of it, and not in good way. Then
Now they can't stop whining about the rest of us mocking them.
MSNBC's Keith Olbermann reminds us, and the teabaggers themselves, in this Countdown "quick comment," why their upset is absurd and that they have only themselves to blame for the term:Oh, what the hell. Here's Rachel Maddow having some fun with it last August:And, here's CNN's Anderson Cooper having his own fun when he said, "It's hard to talk when you're teabagging":Teabaggers need to get the fuck over it. You brought this on yourselves you whiny, little bitches.
