I couldn’t bear to watch all the way through both clips, but from what I saw, the only reference to “tea bags” rather than “tea parties” comes from Griff Jenkins on Fox News. Ah well, fodder enough for not one but two segments in primetime on the left’s cable news net of choice. This reminds me of the “fishsticks” joke on South Park last week: Amusing the first time you hear it, increasingly tedious every time thereafter — which was part of the satire on SP but seems lost on Maddow. I give her credit, though, for her choice of guests. There’s no one better equipped to deal with this topic than Cox, who pioneered the art of beating ribald humor to death with her constant mentions of anal on Wonkette. Well done, ladies.

I was going to post about ASU surrendering to the left’s death threats by announcing a new scholarship in Obama’s name, but that seemed too depressing for a Saturday night so I went with this instead. Feel free to comment on either below.
