    Well, Matt, tea-bagging is the term the people organizing those events adopted before they realized what the popular culture meaning of the term was.

    Having said that, I thought it was a little out of place for the voice mail show. Not to mention a long walk for Arkle to make a political joke.

  2. Matt says

    Have you looked at what Urban dictionary has to say about “Tea Baggers” and tell me if anyone using just a phase is tolerate or open mind about the people they are talking about. And it was not used by the people organizing the events, at least not at first. Tea Baggers is the term use by people like Rachel Maddow’s and others to attack those people I mean how high school is this yet here we are.

    Agree with them or not I can’t stand intolerance right or left that is why our politics is as bad as it is.

  3. D. C. says

    Sorry, Matt, but Maddow only used the term because the organizers were using it first. That’s a documented fact.

    I agree it’s childish to mock people with it, but I think we should acknowledge who used it first.

    this eppisode is the next one didn’t show up in my itunes. Is it just me or was there something wrong with the feed? I can stream it at home but missed listening at my desk at work :)

    D.C. It just greatly bothers me that a group of people that are worried about our growing national debt are some how short sighted and there ideas have no value. As that goes to SGU I think some people are right the show is slow. One might even go so far as to say its not for everyone. We get another week of inching forward. I agree some people that are against SGU/Debt wouldn’t ever be happy no matter what but that doesn’t make them wrong. I agree some are to quick to judge but being insulting solves few things.

    Also some examples of where people have found it offensive.
