I'm thrilled to report that up until yesterday, I was completely unaware of the highly gay and fairly revolting slang meaning of "tea bagging". Isn't Cooper supposedly considered a more or less legitimate TV journalist? Why would a real news program allow this kind of thing?Anderson Cooper joins the tea-bagging party

They couldn't let MSNBC have all the fun.
Last week MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and her guest, Air America's Ana Marie Cox, spent a segment discussing the anti-tax tea-bagging protests being held by the conservative party. That is, between the giggles and double entendres about a certain sex act that shares the same slang name.
Anderson Cooper joined in the fun on Tuesday (April 14) night at the end of a conversation with David Gergen, the director of the Center for Public Leadership, regarding President Obama's last speech about his administration's economic policy.
Gergen concluded by saying that the Republican party is currently in a position of weakness. Having soundly lost the past election, he says that "they're searching for their voice."
"It's hard to talk when you're tea-bagging," Cooper quipped.
