The Pink Slip Method

I see that a political pro-life group has “disinvited” Representative Stupak from its award dinner. Susan B Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser:

We will no longer be (honoring him). By accepting this deal from the most pro-abortion President in American history, Stupak has not only failed to stand strong for unborn children, but also for his constituents and pro-life voters across the country.

The “babykiller” hit back:

I don’t need an award.

Though the dinner hosts are clearly two separate groups, let’s keep in mind the company kept in these sorts of affairs. Ralph Nader might disagree, but I hope Mr Stupak has the good sense to distance himself from certain award-winning pro-life honorees.

All this really has the strong whiff of Republicanism. Somebody crosses you up so it’s time for another kind of list. Or a forced exit to the unemployment line. Two reasons why the teabag chatter is so hilarious. Watch your step within a movement that has Karl Rove as a godfather. Vary from the parade formation, and soon enough, you may find yourself handed your pink slip. Not to mention a choice playground name or two.

Somehow, I don’t think the congressman in question here will mind spending a quiet evening at home with family instead of the wolves.

    “I don’t need an award.”

    Good for him!

    Do you understand what “teabagging” is?

    I’d appreciate it if you wouldn’t use that term to describe TEA party protesters.


    • Todd says:


      We’ve been through this before. They use the term to describe themselves. It wouldn’t be my choice, but there we have it.

      • Tony says:

        No they don’t. It is a term used by the likes of Keith Olbermann precisely for it’s sexual innuendo.

        If you continue to use it, I’ll have to stop frequenting your blog.

      • Todd says:

        Tony, if you look carefully on this thread, I used the term “teabag,” which, the last time I checked, was both something in my pantry and a visual symbol I’ve seen used by the movement.

        It was you, in fact, that expanded the term to “teabagging.” If you wish, I can delete your post, if it offends you.

    Maybe Tony can help me out here.

    Recognizing that they are not all necessarily “Tea Party” members (assuming there is really an organized “Tea Party” movement, what should I call “protesters” who:

    Openly carry a gun to a venue where the president is speaking.

    Carry signs equating the president to Stalin and/or Hitler.

    Spit on a African-American Congressman.

    Call other African-American Congressmen the “n” word.

    Call an openly gay Congressman the “f” word.

    Vandalize the offices of congressional prepresentatives.

    Vandalize the home of a brother of a congressional representative.

    Issue death threats to at least 10 congressional representatives.

    Send faxes with nooses to at least two Congressional representatives.

    Leave profanity-laced voice messages for one of the most pro-life members ever to serve in Congress?

    I’d think “teabagger” is rather mild.

    In the old days, guys like Tony would have blamed it on the pinko commie fags. I guess ACORN is the modern-day equivalent.
