Will Conservatives Adopt 'Teabagger' As Their 'N-Word'?
Linguistic smart-person Jay Nordlinger ofNational Review's The Corner -- the #1 Internet blog -- sees the future, of words, in a post today: "It could be that conservatives will 'own the insult' and use 'teabagger' as a badge of honor. It could become some proud conservative N-word. President Reagan said, 'I'm a contra, too.' Well, I'm a teabagger too — and the Anderson Cooper types can [go jump in a lake]. Still, I find the word kind of sickening, and its rapid spread and acceptance even more sickening." It's Tuesday afternoon at The Corner! [The Corner]
