I Guess We Won't Be Hearing About "Teabagging" Anymore

Remember all of those derisive terms that port-siders used to describe Tea Party activists–terms used as recently as last night while networks like MSNBC tracked the returns from Massachusetts, and people like Keith Olbermann became even more unhinged?

Yeah, so do I. The way I figure it, people like Olbermann should have a new, healthy respect for the Tea Party movement, as well as for the national Republicans, who put the energy of the Tea Party activists to good use, and knew enough to get out of the way at appropriate moments.

Although with any luck, neither Olbermann, nor his cohorts won’t know better than to stop with the sneering.
