Ok, those that sent tea bags way back in 2009 are "teabaggers", but are they still sending tea bags? Is that all they stand for and all they do now? No? So should we continue to label them that way? Or is it a convenient term of derision meant to belittle them and mock their positions?
Regardless of the origins, I think you have to agree that it isn't used in a complimentary manner? As such, politicians shouldn't be using the term. Clearly Gibbs feels that way, since he wouldn't even touch the question at a recent press conference. If he is embarressed for himself or the president by using the term, I'd say that is a pretty clear sign.
