"Indeed, "TeaBag parties" as a phenomenon entered the political lexicon at the behest of the protesters themselves."
Slippery mea culpa, Jackson, and an untrue justification. The protesters called themselved, "Teapartiers". They urged the mailing of teabags to their reps. But they didn't use the term, "teabaggers". That nasty term was minted by some gay media type, Anderson Cooper, likely.
