The irony of teabaggers

I was recently celebrating the irony of conservative political agitators naming themselves after a gay sex act, and a friend of mine pointed out something that I overlooked.

We know that there are quite a few closet gays mixed into the Republican political machine. And most of them have to have some idea about what the word teabagging means. There's an extra special irony in them knowing that the movement is embarrassing itself, and yet not being able to say anything for fear of outing themselves.
