Keith Olberman meets Peter Griffin
The propensity on the left to refer to the tax protesting as "tea bagging" is, at best, adolescent (Beavis: They're teabagging, heh, heh. Butthead: Yeah, heh, heh, heh) and, at worst, intentionally derisive of people who they assume must be socially conservative. For those social conservatives, who may be open to arguments for a more expansive use of government to, say, reduce poverty or equalize economic circumstances, it is offputting.
