Keep it Classy, MSM!

The main stream media has almost collapsed into a fit of giggles this week over the Tea Parties held around the country and, at last count, attended by hundreds of thousands of Americans.

Why is a massive, peaceful demonstration by freedom loving Americans cause for such hysterics?

For CNN, MSNBC and other media outlets, it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to use the word "teabagging" in a sentence.

Teabagging, for those who don't live in a frat house, refers to a sexual act involving part of the male genitalia and a second person's face or mouth.

Wow. Very mature. Almost as mature as someone that uses the argument, "I won," when people don't agree with him, or smirks while he slyly flips off his opposition as he's accepting victory.

Meanwhile, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is standing by the reports released by the DHS last week warning law enforcement across the country of violent right wing extremists and our penchant for violence.

And sure enough... the DC Tea Party was shut down temporarily due to those violent right wing extremists. Someone had the gall, no, the audacity, to *gasp* throw a box of tea bags at the White House! Granted, in today's world, that wasn't a very smart move. But if that was the most violent thing that happened at the hundreds of protests on Wednesday, I don't think that the DHS has a leg to stand on.
