A Few Good Teabaggers

Is the colonel's underwear a matter of national security?

Not since the late, great, Potter Stewart have we so enjoyed the sweet mystery of jurisprudence:

Mr Lane was alleged to have been photographed placing his genitals on an army sergeant’s forehead — a practice the court defined as “teabagging” — while the sergeant was asleep.

It’s like laundering money — now that Australia’s High Court has entered “teabagging” into the public record, we can happily use the term on their authority, requiring only the proper citation to establish its provenance.

As for the tawdry case which gave rise to the obiter dictum flagrante, pay it no mind — something about improperly established military tribunals replacing traditional courts martial.

Instead, imagine Tom Cruise questioning a stubborn Jack Nicholson about a hazing incident gone awry. Nicholson strongly denies he ordered it, but pressed on the subject, he angrily reveals the truth behind Code Bag:

You can’t handle the testicles!

Yeah, well… that’s how much we’re trying to avoid the news this week.

‘Teabagging’ case challenge: court ruled invalid [AussieBC, via CheapBoy]

Considering the lurid rumors floating about, it would have been Jack prosecuting Tom.

Oh, hey, TJ, my god, this is so wonderful:

“U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins offered encouragement to conservatives at a town hall forum that the Republican Party would embrace a “great white hope” capable of thwarting the political agenda endorsed by Democrats who control Congress and President Barack Obama.”

Thats the Topeka Journal-Constitution, and to make it even better, she is a hottie soccer-mom with giant capped teeth, of whom it could be said “I would hit that” with no stretching of the truth.

Long as I am mining DU for non-retarded bits, here is a little something that truly is appropriate now, with Ted gone, some old Dion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dHvYB5JdSs

@Prommie: They going straight for the white power play now. Once they get the jesucrazies in the room with the neonazis and militiamen, it is going to get very interesting.

@FlyingChainSaw: Right now the teabaggers seem to be mostly Paultards and racists and dittoheads, the jeebusers seem to be resistant to the GOP lately. Palin and Bachman talk Jeebuser, but apart from a small stir, they haven’t really gotten the bulk of the Jeebusers on the bus yet.

I am loving this “great white hope” thing, I love when people are honest. If this toothy old babe gets some criticism, I am betting on Limbaugh to defend her by openly arguing for the legitimacy of the expression, and I hope he succeeds in getting the GOP to start using it across the board. I hope that the GOP candidate for president in 2012 puts it on his or her posters, “Elect Palin, the Great White Hope.”

@Prommie: Sorry, Bobby Jindal. Better luck next time!

@mellbell: You taking bets? Is anyone setting odds?

@Prommie: Methinks they’re trying to get rid of their own Angry Black Man when they talk of the great white hope. Anyone notice how Steele got up in Steve Inskeep’s grill this morning?


Ooh, good idea. I’ll lay $10 bucks on Rommney. that’s the safe money, I think. Oh, and a side bet of $5 on Palin splitting the vote with an independent run.

@The Nabisco Quiver:

Steele is such a puerile idiot. You’d think they’d have noticed by now. I mean, more power to him, he’ll help us keep majorities in Congress, but jeeze louise, if this guy was a cartoon character he’d be Wile E. Coyote, forever getting hit by his own rhetorical anvils and wandering, blast-headed, out of explosions of his own making. He’s so lousy at running a party you almost want to handicap Howard Dean so that the playing field is level.


Michael Steele is my favorite person in the world.

@Tommmcatt Floats: They’ve noticed — I think they took away Steele’s credit cards a few weeks back.

But the reason they have Steele is that they couldn’t agree on anyone else. If they kicked him out, they’d have to go through all that infighting again.

@Tommmcatt Floats:
No way. Wile E. Coyote’s much smarter. At least he can build a super duper electromagnet that can take down the moon.

Steele’s more like:

Heh — the Stinque Tweet just got a new subscriber, USATeaParty2009. We promise to provide the finest in testicle-related posts.

@The Nabisco Quiver: I had a good time listening to that interview. Apparently “nuance” is a bad word now. Who knew?

@IanJ: What bothered me was hearing the staid, listener-supported National People’s Radio turned into a frothing sea of RadioShout for five minutes. Well, at least as close as NPR can get to that.

Yeah, I was a bit annoyed by that too. And going back over the transcript, it looks like Mr. Inskeep was in fact accusing Steele of having said things or meant things that he didn’t. I haven’t gone back to what Steele wrote, but it looked like Stevie was making a bigger deal out of “keep Medicare” and “oppose government-run healthcare” than was warranted.
