Ginny's fired up about Health Care ... and thinks those Teabaggers are taking things too far! Who will put an end to all of this balls out blasphemy, I wonder? I'm simultaneously shocked, cringing and yet - proud - that I have a mother who knows the true meaning of teabagging. How many people can say that? Let's see ... there's Ginny, Margaret Cho's mother .... that about sums it up. Teabagging has nothing to do with making home made Lipton iced-tea on a sweltering Jersey summer day, or taping bags to your temples, like the fine gentleman in the photo below is demonstrating. Teabagging is something that Kathy Griffin must reference on The D List once an episode. Sheesh, even Maggie Griffin must know what teabagging is, which now raises the teabagging know-how tally to three moms out of thousands. They should start a club. This discovery is slightly less awkward than the time I realized what the "massager" under the bathroom sink was really for. So that's something.
The fact that my mom gets her sexual Wiki knowledge from Howard Stern makes things even better. She didn't run a porn video store in SF, catering to the gays, she just turned on Sirius radio and let Robin, Howard and Stuttering John into her Toyota Corolla. Then again, we did grow up with a copy of The National Enquirer on the kitchen table, which was considered news. I thought "Baby Born With Alien Head" was worthy of show & tell, until I was 7. May we all be as lucky, to have a mom like the Ginbomb. Her message rant about the Teabaggers can be heard below.
